• my dog has fleas and needs flea bath. what is the cost. same question for my cat? I will need to purchase treatment pills for each following the treatment as well

    Hi Jill,
    There are many ways to treat fleas including baths, oral medications, and topical medications. I recommend making an appointment with the veterinarian and they can determine the best course for your pets. This way, the veterinarian can check for additional concerns such as infections or tapeworms that happen with flea infestation. To help clean your house, I recommend vacuuming frequently and taking the bag or container contents outside immediately after vacuuming. Turning the heat up in the house and using a humidifier can help hatch flea eggs faster as well.

Need more information or advice?
