4 Ways To Stay Ahead Of Fleas And Ticks
1. Talk to your veterinarian!
Talking to your own veterinarian is always the first and best step. Sure you can read up on various preventatives, but it is much easier to get questions answered straight from your vet. Find out which flea and tick prevention method is the best for your dog. Our veterinarian recommends Bravecto® (Fluralaner) for fast acting, up to 12 week protection**! Bailie and I have been using BRAVECTO since late spring this year and are happy as clams with the protection we receive. BRAVECTO is FDA approved by prescription only, which is why it is only available from your veterinarian or veterinary clinics.
2. Treat year round!
Just because the weather turns chilly doesn’t mean the dangers of fleas and ticks go away! Smart fleas find a way to get into warm places like your home where they can live and multiply during the cold months. The flea life cycle is a long one, which means you may already have fleas that are not yet able to be seen. For these reasons, it makes good sense to treat dogs for fleas and ticks all year long. Since BRAVECTO is one simple, tasty chew for your dog four times a year. It is easy to administer year round!
3. Get the My Pet Reminders App!
One big plus with BRAVECTO is there are only four doses to remember in a year. To help stay on track, download the My Pet Reminders App. It is free, and available for Android and iPhone use. This app will not only remind you that it is time for your flea and tick preventative, you can set reminders for other pet appointments and custom reminders.
4. Mark your calendar!
Many of us like to use the good old fashioned paper calendars. BRAVECTO has us covered too. Each dose of BRAVECTO comes with stickers for your calendar. The stickers make a good visual reminder when you glance at your family calendar. To be really sure you don’t miss a dose, use the stickers and the My Pet Reminders App.
