Fleas & Ticks

Fleas and ticks are more than just annoying pests, they can also cause other health problems for your furry family members. The Neffsville Veterinary Clinic team has created some tips to help you protect your pet(s) all year-round from these annoying parasites.

Ticks & Lyme Disease:
According to the Companion Animal Parasite Council, Lancaster County is at HIGH RISK for tick borne diseases. Over 1 in 16 dogs test positive for Lyme disease and this number continues to increase yearly. Lyme disease can be very costly to treat and can lead to other health problems for the pet. We see ticks on pets throughout the year. It is very important that your pet be on a tick preventative product year-round.

Fleas:
Fleas cause pets to have persistent itching causing stress to both the pet and the pet owner. Preventing a flea infestation is much quicker, easier, less expensive, and less stressful than getting rid of an infestation which is very costly and time consuming. Fleas multiply very quickly, a female flea can lay over 2000 eggs in her lifetime. Since fleas can enter your home on other pets, shoes, and/or other objects from outside; it is very important that all pets, even indoor-only pets, be treated with a flea preventative year-round.
