Risk of fleas

Fleas are the most common ectoparasite found on dogs and cats in North America and can be a significant problem if your pet becomes infested. Fleas can carry serious diseases, and some can even be life threatening.1,2

The flea life cycle is long, and monthly treatments may leave gaps in protection, allowing reinfestation in your home, driving you and your pet apart.
