Fleas and ticks can be a serious problem for pets in The Villages, FL. The warm climate and locally specific conditions make infestations a looming threat for animals living in the area. The best way to protect them is to have a solid flea and tick prevention system in place. At Oxford Animal Hospital, we offer compressive flea and tick options to ensure pets have less discomfort and reduce the threat these pests pose to the pet and the pet owner.
Impact of Fleas and Ticks
Fleas and ticks are highly uncomfortable to pets, but they can also affect the safety of other members of your family. Fleas can burrow into the carpet and lay eggs. A home can become infested in a short time, and they will bite both pets and owners relentlessly. If an animal is exposed to a flea infestation without the proper prevention, it may become anemic, threatening their lives. Ticks are also known to carry severe and potentially life-threatening diseases. Ticks, much like fleas, are parasites who attach themselves to the host and continuously feed on their host's blood. These ticks can live on a host for some time and can cause a pet to become anemic if several are attached to the pet. Both humans and animals are susceptible to disease and illness from fleas and ticks. If you don't currently have a flea and tick prevention system in place, now is the time to get one.
