Spring has Sprung and so have the Fleas!

albuquerque spring fleasSpring has Sprung and so have the Fleas!

This past weekend was the official start of spring. Now that everything is in full bloom you might want to prepare yourself for fleas.  As the warm weather rolls out, so do the fleas. Just like us, fleas like the warm weather and those eggs that have been laying dormant begin to hatch.  Also your pets are likely spending more time outside, rolling around in the fresh grass and big dirt piles.  All of these things make them more susceptible to getting fleas.

The spring is the perfect time to start your flea protection

The best treatment is good prevention, because once you have a flea infestation, it takes a lot more work to get rid of them.  See our tips on how to get rid of fleas. Thankfully Flea and Tick prevention is very easy. You pickup some Frontline Flea and Tick treatment, squeeze the treatment onto the nape of their neck, and you are done!
