Flea and Tick Season is Here - But Here's Something You Should Know!

It's flea and tick season in Northeast PA. And it's important that we know what we're putting onto our pet's bodies, because we don't want the cure to be worse than the problem. I came across this video recently on the serious dangers posed by some over-the-counter flea and tick remedies.

To be safe, avoid using products on your pet that contains pyrethrins or pyrethroids. These are pesticides that affect the nervous system of insects, and have been known to cause serious health complications and even death in some pets. Your veterinarian can recommend flea and tick control products that are pesticide-free, and safe for your breed of dog or cat.
