1) The warm temperatures of summer were enjoyable for most of us, but the Fleas and Ticks liked it even more.
Fortunately, we have just the things to keep those pests off of your pets.
2) In our area, Ticks season is from March until about August 1st. There are some exciting
new medicines for killing ticks and fleas lately. In the spring of 2014 two new products became available. First was Nexgard
which is a great tasting (to dogs!) chewable medication that safely and effectively kills fleas and ticks for 1 month. The
second is Bravecto a related medication made by a competing company which is also in the form of a great tasting chewable
that kills fleas and ticks for 3 months. Both of these compounds represent huge advances in both effectiveness and safety.
3) Fleas in the Franklin area start off in low numbers in March and their populations build
all summer until there are huge numbers of them by August thru November.
