Our office recommends treating your animals preventatively with a flea and tick product. Flea and tick season generally starts in March and ends in November. It is very weather dependent, so if the weather stays warm through December or it gets warm early, then the season will last longer.
If your animals do get fleas, then all the animals in the house should be treated. Expect to treat all the animals once per month for at least 4 months to break the flea cycle then to treat preventatively so another infestation does not occur. All of the animals’ bedding should be washed and the floors thoroughly vacuumed.
