Pet Sitting and Fleas
So the last couple of weeks we’ve been enjoying beautiful Spring weather here in Fort Collins. Before we know it, April will be here welcoming the promise of summer with longer, warmer days. Unfortunately with the warmer weather comes the troublesome flea.
Obviously we hate to see our pets have fleas. However, as a professional pet sitting company, we have an even greater concern, as we care for many pets.
Here in Colorado, our pets get a reprieve from flea medication in the colder months, but as it begins to warm, we need to remember to return to active flea control.
There are several good products on the market. If you are unsure what to use on your dog or cat, be sure to see your vet for effective flea prevention.
General rule of thumb for flea medication in colder climates like Colorado: April thru the end of October.
