At Lone Star Animal Hospital, we pride ourselves in being your trusted veterinarians in Victoria, TX and the surrounding areas. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to encourage happier and healthier pets, providing compassionate care along the way. One the more common reasons we see people bring their pets into our office is for that of tick and flea treatment.
Dangers of Fleas and Ticks
Despite their small size, fleas and ticks can really do a number on your pet’s health and wellness. Fleas, for example, can reproduce very quickly so that even a small flea problem can turn into a major infestation within a matter of days. Fleas will live in your pet’s coat and cause a great deal of itching, irritation, and discomfort. Not to mention, they can spread to other pets and even humans, infesting your home and creating a major headache.
Ticks, on the other hand, do not tend to cause infestations but come with their own potential problems. For example, ticks can carry Lyme Disease, which can be fatal and can affect not just pets, but people as well.
Flea and Tick Treatment With your Victoria Veterinarian
The good news is that preventing these pests is as easy as getting flea and tick treatment at your Victoria veterinarians’ office. We have a variety of options to protect your pet from fleas and ticks, including topical medicines and even oral pills that you give to your pet once a month to drastically reduce their chances of flea, tick, and other pest problems.
This, in addition to keeping your pet properly groomed, can help you protect your pet from the dangers associated with fleas and ticks.
