Tips on choosing the best flea prevention product for your pet.
There are products with age parameters and weight requirements to consider. Be wary of generic or older over-the-counter flea control products as they are often not as safe, effective, or long-lasting as the newer products. Don’t be fooled by label claims that these products are the same.
Many old products are particularly dangerous to cats, even if they simply rub against a dog treated with them. Unlike “natural” products, prescription flea control agents have been extensively tested and approved by the FDA. There are many old wives tales for flea prevention that simply do not work, so do not stray from the new and approved options.
