It is fairly simple to notice flea infestation on your dog. What is more, once you get about it and are conscientious, it is fairly easy to get rid of it, too. However, there are other different parasites your pet may be infested with, which can lead to severe health problems and which, alas, are not that easily noticeable.

Flea and tick control is vital for anyone who wants to lead a bug-free life. You may not be aware of how easy it is for your dog to get fleas. Be it a stray cat, a neighbour's new puppy, a racoon, whatever that walks over your yard and spills one female flea that later recklessly reproduces in your garden, and you have a flea problem at your door.
Naturally, fleas need proper conditions to develop. They like heat, so no wonder that we suffer from flea infestation mostly in the summer months. It does not mean, however, that you need not worry about fleas or ticks in winter. Actually, according to specialists, there are only about 40-45 days in the year cycle when we can totally forget about these pesky creatures. And these days vary dramatically as far as the region is concerned, so you'd better be on your guard.
