Protecting Your Dog From Fleas

With the warm weather upon us, your dog is at a higher risk of getting fleas. Fleas can introduce a number of diseases and parasites into your dog’s bloodstream. It can also make him itch and scratch and the resulting wounds are prone to infection. Thus it is important to lessen the risk of your dog getting exposed to fleas. Fleas will gather in brush and grasses so keep your yard trimmed and neat. Don’t leave your dog outside especially at dusk and evening when fleas are more prevalent. Treat your dog with a flea prevention product monthly. Use this product all year round since just a few warm days can make fleas active. Follow all product directions. If your house gets infested with fleas, you may get bitten as well. Vacuum often and wash cloth items your dog lays on with hot water. Learn more from your Cy-Fair veterinary clinic.
