Fleas, heartworms, and other parasites can cause serious illness in your beloved
cats and dogs. Fortunately, there are ways to help prevent them from invading your pets and your home.
Fleas not only infest your pet and your home, but they can cause extreme allergic reactions that require costly and extensive treatment for your beloved pet. Heartworm disease can be difficult to treat, and can be fatal if not diagnosed early enough. Fortunately, there are effective ways to protect your pets from these nasty freeloaders.
This potentially fatal illness affects both cats and dogs and, according to the American Heartworm Society (AHS), roughly one million dogs are diagnosed with it every year despite its being nearly 100 percent preventable.
While many people think of fleas as simply a huge annoyance (which they certainly are), these tiny bloodsuckers can pose serious health risks, particularly to young or allergic pets so constant vigilance is your best weapon.
