Pets: Unsure of how to apply a topical flea & tick preventative to your dog or cat? Here's a quick lesson
I always stress how important it is to be mindful of using flea and tick preventative for dogs and cats, and due to the mild winter, this spring and summer are set to be a challenging time as far as the little buggers go, experts say.
Being the diligent pet owner that you are, it's likely that you've already gone out and picked up preventative for your furry friends. (Right?)
Do you ever leave the vet's office or other point of purchase with your pet's topical flea and tick preventative and think to yourself, "I'm not really sure how to put this on. Am I doing it correctly?"
You might feel kind of silly asking for a how-to from your clinician (although you shouldn't — they're happy to demonstrate), but you're not alone. Plenty of people are in the same boat!
If you haven't asked, and feel all thumbs when it comes to applying it, I've found a clear, concise video for you that's a great tutorial on how to do it right.
