Itâ€™s high season for Fleas & Ticks.
With the long fall, and still no sustained frosts, we are seeing exceptional numbers of fleas and ticks.
Fleas and ticks can cause serious disease and discomfort in both people and pets. All the pets in your household should be protected from both fleas and ticks.
All dogs should be on Tick Preventatives such as Advantix or Nexguard. There is no safe tick preventative for cats, and any effective topical preventative for dogs may be very toxic to cats. Keep your cat away from your dog for 24 hours after using any topical anti-tick treatment.

Flea Prevention: Permethrin Toxicity in Cats
Not all Flea Control Products are Created Equal. There is an enormous selection of Flea Control Products available from various sources. Some are effective, some are not. Some are accurately labelled, some are not. Most importantly, many treatments for dogs and houses use Permethrin as their active ingredient. Permethrin is highly toxic to cats, causing seizures and life-threatening muscle tremors.
Ask us for advice, Always read the label, and Never use a product intended for dogs on a cat.
