The first step is to contact your veterinarian to get recommendations for your specific pet since your veterinarian knows your pet's history and can provide you with expert advice on flea prevention and removal. Preventing fleas by using the recommended product(s) is much easier than dealing with fleas once an infestation has occurred . Start in the spring before fleas get a good foothold and be diligent through the warm months with whatever treatment is prescribed by your vet. Once infested you may have to use flea bombs, powders or other methods as your vet recommends. Remember, it's better to STOP the fleas before they get a foothold and it's more comfortable and healthy for your pet to be flea free.
Lyme disease is transmitted by ticks and causes inflamed joints, fever and systemic illness. It can be costly and difficult to treat. There is a vaccination for dogs that will help prevent Lyme disease. Seek advice from your veterinarian to get your dog vaccinated. Using flea powders/sprays or the spot-on Frontline will help kill the ticks. Please call 765-423-9388 for more information.
Spaying and neutering puppies and kittens does not harm them and greatly decreases the pet overpopulation problem. A veterinarian can tell you if the puppy or kitten is too young and when the best time will be to spay/neuter your pet. Not spaying your pet leaves the possibility of unwanted litters. If you have any questions about it please call our Animal Control expert. Early age neutering and spaying also virtually eliminates mammary (breast) cancer and testicular cancer and will reduce any future prostate problems. There is no good reason not to spay or neuter! Please call 765-423-9388 for more information.
