Fleas and Ticks Treatment in Gresham and Troutdale
Our Gresham and Troutdale vet always asks you during wellness exams what flea or tick medication you use for your pets. This is because it is far better to invest in prevention than to face a flea or tick health crisis.
Why You Should Protect Your Pet From Fleas and Ticks
Fleas are itchy for both you and your pet, and multiply quickly. Pets scratch their skin to relieve the itch, and can develop skin infections that require vet treatment as a result. Getting fleas out of the home requires you to scrub every surface in the home, wash your pet’s bedding, and treat your pet. It’s a pain, and if you don’t get every flea egg, you’ll only face a new round of fleas.
Ticks carry many dangerous diseases. Your pet could get Lyme disease, which comes with life-threatening symptoms. While we can pull off a tick and analyze it for presence of diseases, it’s better for you and your pet to ward off ticks with preventative medication.
