Fall is here - so you can stop giving your cat or dog flea and tick prevention, right? No way. Keep your fuzzy friend protected all year round to prevent uncomfortable flea bites and dangerous infections. The outside adult fleas won't die until there have been a couple hard frosts, so here in Cincinnati it's usually December or January before the outdoor flea threat is gone. But those poppy seed-sized deer ticks are usually still active in December and emerge again in February, so no waiting until spring allowed.

We recommend Bravecto (oral 12 week protection) or Nexgard or Simparica (oral monthly protection) for dogs, and Revolution (topical monthly protection) for cats.
