Flea & Tick: Facts, Tips, And Tricks

Welcome to the 3'rd and final part in my flea prevention series.
If you missed the first 2 posts, you can find them here, and here.
In my past two posts, we went over how prevention of fleas and ticks is key to keeping them away from your pets. It is much easier to prevent, than to treat an infestation.
In order to prevent a flea infestation from happening, it is important to understand them.
This infographic from Ron at Havahart Wireless explains it perfectly!




That concludes my flea prevention serious, thanks for staying tuned with us!

Today's letter in the #atozchallenge is U.
U is for Understanding Fleas.


Today is Friday, and that means our post is part of The Pet Parade Blog Hop, and Flashback Friday!

FlashBack Friday!
This was last summer, on Canada Day. Our family picnic, with Mika looking on, waiting for her share of the grub!

  2. Yikes! The letter U means the month is almost over...time flies when a dog is having fun! We despise fleas and ticks, yuck! The ticks love to jump into my low rider self and try to nestle in my warm, comfy furs, but Mom usually catches them racing around before they find a home and my flea and tick stuff helps if she misses them. Nasty creatures!

  11. Fleas and ticks are such a pain! The things that they can do are really amazing though. I'm glad that there are ways to prevent getting them because getting rid of them once you have them is very tedious.

  15. Great info, but I don't like the fact that our state is one of the worst states for ticks! We've only dealt with fleas once or twice over the last 20 years, but we deal with ticks EVERY year. Ugh, I hate them....it's the one thing I dread about spring.

  18. What a great infographic! Thankfully we don't have Lyme disease or Ehrlichiosis here in Australia, but we do have the deadly paralysis tick. Flea and tick prevention is such an important part of keeping our pets happy and healthy.

  20. As much as I look forward to summer, I hate the inevitable tick infestation. I saw the first one two weeks, and have already had to give Buddy a tick treatment. This was a very informative entry! Thanks!
