Get Rid of Those Pesky Critters

Your pet is an easy target for parasites and small insects. Common parasites like ticks, fleas, and heartworm-carrying mosquitos feed on your pets, potentially infecting them with many dangerous diseases.

  • Fleas: These bloodsucking insects feed on mammals and lay eggs in their fur. Fleas can transmit harmful parasites like Tapeworms and Murine Typhus, as well as cause dermatitis and anemia. One flea can reproduce nearly 50 times a day, making a flea infestation a substantial threat to your pet’s well-being. Flea infestations often spread throughout your home, including in your carpet and furniture, making them tough to eradicate.
  • Ticks: Ticks are found lurking in shrubs and tall grass. They attach to your pet as they run past, biting them and feeding on their blood. Although nearly microscopic, the tick represents one of the most potent dangers to your pet’s health. A single tick bite can carry a host of potentially fatal diseases, including Lyme Disease, Typhus, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Ehrlichiosis, and Anaplasmosis. Although rare, animal-to-human transfer is possible, making the tick potentially hazardous to you and your family. Take special care to inspect your pet and yourself after any woodland outdoor activities.
