Unfortunately, Texas does not experience cold enough weather to eliminate fleas and ticks during the winter months. Consequently, fleas and ticks multiply year-round, causing problems for our pets. We recommend keeping all of your pets on year-round flea and tick prevention to kill existing populations, and prevent new ones from starting. Frontline Plus is a monthly topical flea and tick prevention that prevents fleas, flea eggs and ticks. For our feline friends, Revolution is “a must” to prevent fleas, ticks, heartworms, intestinal worms, ear mites and certain types of mange. Fleas can cause many health problems for your pet, and can even transmit serious diseases to you and your family.
