Winter Flea Medication Use for Pets
Not a Creature was Stirring Except for… Fleas?! Holiday Pet Tips and Advice
As a holiday gift each winter season, bees, mosquitoes, flies, and many other bugs disappear in colder parts of the country. Humans enjoy an extended period without stings, bites and buzzy irritations. Pets enjoy a break from having their noses converted into an insect meeting place. And yet, even when the mercury drops, one annoying pest neglects to share in gift giving by sticking around all year round: fleas.
While flea eggs generally don’t endure cold temperatures, their prognosis improves considerably in just the right (warm) conditions. And guess who happens to possess the perfect environment for fleas to survive even the coldest of winters? That’s right – Fido and Mittens, especially if they track fleas into the house at any point during the year.
In lieu of uninvited fleas crashing your holiday season, be sure to give your pets flea treatments this winter and all year round. Not only will your dog or cat stay happy, healthy and itch free, so will you and all the festive revelers who stop by your home for holiday cheer.
By the way, flea medications and heartworm preventatives make terrific stocking stuffers, alongside an abundance of pet toys and delectable treats, of course.
And as a special holiday giveaway, we are giving one lucky customer a one-year supply of our Flea 4x flea medication for dogs or Flea 3x for cats. Just leave a comment telling us what you do for your pet to keep them comfortable during the colder winter months, and one comment will be selected to receive a year’s supply of free flea medication.
