Let Our Veterinarians Help Free Your Pet of Fleas
If your cats or dogs scratch frequently, they may have fleas. This is bad news for your pets and you. Fleas are parasites that afflict your pets, and lay eggs in carpet, furniture, and other places around your home. Left untreated, the eggs will hatch and progress through their life cycle. As adult fleas, they jump on and infest your pets. As allergens, fleas often cause severe itching that can advance to skin diseases.
Unfortunately, no individual flea product has the ability to kill fleas across their entire life cycle. But vet-recommended flea products effective in killing adult fleas are Frontline and Advantage.
Call our North Hollywood pet hospital to set up an appointment with one of our veterinarians. Proper vet care for fleas will give you both peace of mind and healthier pets.
