Flea and Tick Season

Spring is coming soon and now is the time to consider whether you need a flea and tick application for your pet.

Choose any flea and tick application carefully. We once had a dog we applied a flea and tick application to. Over the next couple of days, she began scratching and licking herself to the point where she started to lose hair. A trip to the veterinarian revealed she was allergic to that particular brand of flea and tick application which was irritating her skin. It took several treatments by the vet. (which cost us a few hundred dollars when it was all said and done) to clear up the skin irritation.

Contact your vet. before using any application on your pets and then decide what is best for your pet.
