Time to start Tick Control on your pets!

If you stopped your pet’s tick preventive over the winter, get it started again NOW. Outdoor dogs and cats will likely be the first family members to find a tick. There are three basic types of products; be sure to use the product that best matches your goals. Ask your vet which suits your pet best.

1 Products that kill ticks pretty much on contact before they attach and start feeding (quick tick knockdown).
2 Products that kill after ticks have attached and started to feed (ticks bite to die).
3 Products that may kill fleas and other parasites but don’t really kill ticks effectively (read the label).
