How can I get rid of fleas?
There are many safe and effective flea products available at our veterinary office. These are different products from those you would find in the pet store.
We carry medications that are given once/month or once every 3 months by mouth, or products that can be applied once/ month on the skin. Also there is a pill that can “kickstart” the flea eradication by working fast but for a short burst. These are all very safe and we use them on our own pets.
Some pets who socialize a lot with other animals may require ongoing flea treatments throughout the year to prevent infestation.
Others, who live a more isolated life, may only require treatment when there is a problem.
If you know that there are fleas present, all pets in the household will have to be treated for several months.
