What’s the Best Flea & Tick Prevention For Pets? Protect Your Home & Family from Parasites

What’s the Best Flea & Tick Prevention For Pets? Protect Your Home & Family from Parasites



Nashville/Brentwood pet owners – Although a year-round problem, springtime brings an increase in fleas & ticks, which is bad news for you & your pets.



Despite their tiny size, fleas & ticks cause misery for your pet. Fleas & ticks stimulate allergies, cause infections & transmit disease – not only to your pet but to your family.



If you see fleas, there are also eggs and larvae in your bedding and carpets.  Ticks, which are prevalent in Nashville and Tennessee, can carry fatal disease like Lyme.



Not all flea and tick preventatives are not created equally. Your choice could go a long way in how well your pet is prevented from parasitic infestations. There are a few questions to discuss with your veterinarian in determining the best flea and tick prevention for your pet.




  • How often is your pet outside? Do they leave your property? Do you take your pet to in the woods?

  • Does your pet have a lot of contact with other pets or go to dog parks? 

  • Do you have multiple pets at home?

  • Can you remember to give your pet flea & tick preventative each month on time?

  • What budget is comfortable for you?



Southside Animal Hospital provides the best flea and tick prevention to protect your pets:




  • Bravecto is given every 12 weeks to dogs as a chew or topically to cats to kill and prevent fleas & ticks for up to 12 weeks.  

     

  • Advantage Multi is applied topically to cats or dogs to kill fleas, prevent heartworms and control roundworms, hookworms & ear mites.
