Springtime can bring about many dangers for pet parents. Parasites are a reality in any pet owner’s life. It is quite common for a pet to contract an internal parasite like tapeworm or an external parasite such as fleas. A pet catching a parasite- like cat fleas, the most common of all the fleas- is inevitable if a monthly preventative treatment is not used. Fleas can jump on people and enter the home making it easy to infect even indoor pets. Most parasites can infect humans putting children in the home at risk. Prescription monthly topical treatments like Advantage Multi by Bayer may seem expensive but it is a small price to pay to ensure your family is safe. Find out why monthly prevention is so important to defend against the dangers that the warm weather brings.
