Flea Control

Save your pet and yourself  the irritation of fleas - get up to date information and the best products for flea control from our friendly team.

Flea allergy dermatitis affects many animals each year and can be costly to treat, so a penny spent on prevention can be a very wise decision.

The key is to prevent your pets environment from becoming contaminated with fleas and their eggs.  The adult flea will lay a huge number of eggs and these eggs hatch into adults which is the ongoing source of fleas which plague the animals, especially in the warmer months.   Using an effective treatment on a regular basis will  keep those adults off your pet and stop them from laying eggs.   Using the right flea control option can be tricky, especially if you have an animal that is sensitive to fleas. There are a wide range of options on the market for flea control. We recommend only four products because we know they work, and they are products with full manufacturer support and backup....
