Flea And Tick Prevention

Oceanside Veterinary | Oceanside Flea and Tick Prevention | CA | Oceanside Veterinary Hospital |

Fleas and ticks can cause discomfort, itchiness, allergic reactions, and serious disease. The chance that your pet may get fleas or ticks depends on many factors: weather, location, and your pet's individual susceptibility.

South Orange County is a "hot spot" for fleas. Ticks tend to live in wooded areas and along hiking trails.

Ticks and fleas also pose a threat to people. If you notice small bites, especially around your ankles, you might have fleas in your house.

Fleas and ticks can be eliminated with a medicated bath and proper treatment. It is important to clean your house, especially areas where you pet frequently lounges. As with most diseases, prevention is the greatest defense against these pests. There are many medications that we can recommend to make sure your pet is protected and we have holistic alternatives to control these parasites.

Did you know that 10 female fleas can produce 267,000 offspring in a month! It is easy to see how easy it would be to become inundated with a flea infestation.

Fleas carry parasites (tapeworm) as well as bacteria that can affect people ( plague, cat scratch fever, and Typhus), so it is important to prevent their proliferation. Tick bites cause serious diseases in both pets and people.

We have holistic options for flea and tick control.
