Winter Flea and Tick Care

While fleas and ticks are abundant during the warmer months, that doesn't mean they disappear during the winter. Your pets are just as susceptible to getting fleas and ticks during the winter months. Our team at TLC Animal Hospital in El Paso can recommend some preventative measures you can take to avoid a flea and tick infestation that your pet carries into your home.

Flea and Tick Prevention

No matter the season, it's important to keep your pets healthy and safe and this includes flea and tick prevention. Fleas and ticks carry parasites that can be quite dangerous to your pet, possibly even fatal. This means you need to prevent your pet from attracting fleas and ticks in the first place. It is important to protect your pet with the right medicine to ward off pests, as well as keeping up with regular pet exams that can check for parasites, including heartworm. When you use these preventative measures, you will have peace of mind knowing your pet is well protected.

Heartworm Treatment

Even with the best preventative measures to keep fleas and ticks off your pets, they can still get bitten here and there. For this reason, you need to use heartworm medicine all year long to give your pets the protection they deserve. Your furry friend will love the medicine as it often comes in tasty chewable forms, similar to a treat.
