The world of flea and tick prevention can be confusing, we will admit!  Never fear, we are here to help.

With Spring now upon us it’s time to check that your flea and tick prevention programmes for your pets are up to date.  

The deadly Paralysis ticks are a year-round problem in Kurringai that’s why a year-round flea and tick prevention plan is critical to keeping your pets safe.

How To Choose What’s Best for Your Pet

Most pet owners will be administering either spot-ons, sprays/rinses, collars or tablets which kill and deter these pesky creatures.  But if you are a little behind on deciding what’s best or are unsure what products to use, give our team a call today and they will work with you to find the best product for your pet and their lifestyle.

If you don’t currently use a product, we strongly recommend Bravecto Chews for dogs and Bravecto Plus for cats.

Bravecto works fast and provides your pet with long-lasting protection against fleas and paralysis ticks, so you can both be free to explore and enjoy life without interruption.

Bravecto Chew for dogs works rapidly from the time of consumption to effectively control fleas within 8 hours and paralysis ticks within 24 hours.

North Shore is a High-Risk Zone

Kuringai is a high prevalence tick zone, and the Spring and Summer months are when the ticks are at their most aggressive.  Naturally, at this time of year your pets will be spending more and more time outdoors.  While this is good for the whole family, flea and tick medications will help prevent irritation and infestation from fleas and ticks.  A flea or tick infestation could quickly ruin you and your pet’s summer, so we strongly recommend a year-round prevention program to minimise this risk. 

The Paralysis tick is particularly aggressive and often causes fatalities amongst our pets.  At Pymble Vet we see multiple cases a week of Paralysis tick bites and our staff are always reinforcing the message that prevention is better than a cure. All products that Pymble Vet recommend for ticks and fleas work to protect against Paralysis ticks as well.
