• Hello, wanted to know if there is anything that I could give our dogs to prevent flea/tick? What forms of prevention are provided out there? Oral or shots?

    Hi Esmerelda, I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. The flea prevention that will work best for your pet will depend on a few different factors including your pets’ age, weight, and overall health as well as the environment that they will be exposed to. There are a few different formulations including oral and topical medications. Your vet knows your pets and your local area so they will be able to give you the best advice on this.
