Animals – Getting Started & Next Steps

How to Apply Effective and Safe Flea Treatment More than likely, your pet is on a monthly flea and tick protection practice. Unlike what a lot of owners think, even indoor pets have to be placed on a preventive routine. Even if your pet hates sitting still, putting on flea medication should not be too difficult. But there are a few helpful tips you can keep in mind. Before anything else, whatever type of medication you give to your pet, ensure that you read and follow the instructions meticulously! If your pet is sick or pregnant, get your vet’s clearance before you apply the medicine. If you can’t contact your vet for some reason, then call the product’s manufacturer. It’s a must to be careful with pets with compromised immune systems. When dealing with medication, never separate the product from the box or at least the label. Several pet owners buy a six-month supply of flea medication, so that need not return to the vet each month. And that is perfectly okay! But you have to keep the whole supply inside the box, so when there’s an emergency or if you need to clear something up, you can just look at the label. Applying flea medication on a dog is somehow easier than on a cat; usually, dogs won’t worry about it. However, a dog tends to roll around more than a cat, so if the medication hasn’t fully soaked in, it may not be as effective as it can be. That’s why before bedtime is the best time to give your dog flea medication. He should be less active or playful by this time. Most likely, the manufacturer will include some recommendations on the label. Again, you should spend time reading these and other directions, not only to ensure your pet’s safety, but also to get the full effect of the mediation.

If you are following everything on the label and still have problems with fleas, then you’ll have to go a step beyond your pet. Look around for signs of flea infestations in your house and at your hard. After applying the medication, the whole area must be vacuumed to eliminate the fleas or reduce their number at the very least. Call your vet and seek advice on how to kill fleas in your home. If nothing ever works, you can contact a pest control company.
