Flea and Tick Prevention Help With Mountainview Animal Hospital

When it comes to controlling fleas and ticks, you can count on us to provide you with the right type of medication for your pet and advice on how to rid your home of flea infestations. If you are looking for a medication where the parasite does not need to bite your pet in order to be killed, we may recommend flea collars and topical treatments. If you are looking for a no-hassle way to control fleas and ticks in your dog or cat, oral tablets/chews may be the right solution. 

Types Of Flea Prevention Medication Available

When it comes to preventing fleas and ticks, there are several different types of medications available, oral chewable tablets, topical treatments and flea collars. Here at Mountainview Animal Hospital, we can help you decide which method is best for your pet, depending on his or her lifestyle.
