Prevention is better than cure

The only way to protect your pet, family and home against fleas, is to stop your pets getting them in the first place. When you’ve owned a pet for a while, you can become less aware of flea bites, meaning you may not notice an infestation in your home immediately. Stay aware and take action if you think you have a problem.

Think you've felt a tick?

Ticks in dogs are less of a problem than fleas, but your dog may pick them up if they spend time in long grass or fields. They tend to attach to the ears, head, neck, and feet, burying their heads under your dog’s skin and gorging on their blood. Unlike fleas, ticks tend to be an isolated problem that is quick and easy to treat with the right tools - we’ll tell you how.
