Your veterinarian has access to at least 10 nontoxic flea and tick products. Your veterinarian can recommend what’s best for your dog or cat. Since the Brown dog tick is capable of spending its entire life indoors it’s best to use the product every month year-round.
Don’t leave your pet’s comfort and your safety in the hands of someone who doesn’t know your pet — see your veterinarian for the best advice on avoiding flea and tick infestation.
