Have you ever seen these little black specs in your dogs coat?
Be happy if you haven’t! This is flea dirt, otherwise know as flea poop! A lot of the times this can be mistaken for actual dirt or dry skin, and it’s even harder to see on darker coated dogs/cats.
Regular checking of your pets fur can make the world of difference when it comes to catching fleas early. Before you know it, you can have an infestation on your hands. Monthly flea and tick preventative is the easiest and most cost effective treatment for your pet in the long run. Avoid the itchiness and take action!
Made more flea and tick repellent pet shampoo! 😍 just a few more days until our 💥POP💥 Out Out Of The Box event! 🙌🏻 9am-3pm. Christmas is right around the corner, so make plans to stop on over this Saturday!! 15 N Tyler #sanangelotx#shoplocal#shopsmall#smallbusinesssaturday
Think fleas and ticks are strictly seasonal parasites? Think again! The truth is, these pesky critters are able to withstand some pretty harsh conditions, including cold weather, by finding warmer places to hide out. This includes your house! If your pet isn’t given year-round prevention, this puts your pet and your home at risk for an infestation. Also, don’t forget about heartworm prevention. It takes one mosquito bite to infect your pet with heartworms. This too can also happen year-round. It cost a lot less to prevent then it does to treat! Please call or email us if you have any questions. #Clementsferryveterinary , #fleaandtickprevention , #heartwormprevention , #dontmissadose
UPDATE - Precious was adopted today 👏👏👏. Now let’s keep our fingers crossed that this one sticks!
This is #adoptable Precious. This girl is calm, quiet, housebroken, and dog-friendly. And yet, every time an interested adopter meets her, they do not want to adopt her. 🤷♀️I can’t quite figure out why. Maybe it’s because she’s missing some teeth due to the malnourishment she experienced prior to coming to our rescue (which does NOT hurt her appetite one bit). Maybe it’s because she’s a little timid, and timid dogs can come off as aloof and disinterested in people? Whatever the cause, she is meeting a potential adoptive family this weekend. Please send some positive vibes her way. Maybe this time the right family and Precious will find each other! (And if not, ask me how to adopt her yourself!) #k9lifesavers#labmix#retrievermix#fleaandtickprevention#heartwormssuck#adoptdontshop#muttsofinstagram#dog#yellowdog#pantingdog
Large adult tapeworm found in a canine's rectum.
Tapeworms are a common diagnosis in dogs and cats. They can be easily prevented by keeping pets on flea prevention YEAR ROUND.
Contrary to what many pet owners believe, pets do not need to go outside to become infested with fleas. As people come in and out of the house they can potentially carry fleas on their clothes and into the home.
Another thing to note is that fleas do not live on the pet but feed on the pet instead. Fleas will jump off the pet to lay eggs and then get back on to continue feeding. Until there is an infestation, it can be difficult to see a flea on a pet.
The tapeworm problem starts when pets get itchy and chew or lick at sites where the flea is biting, consuming the flea which at some previous point had consumed the tapeworm egg.
Once in the digestive system the tapeworm egg develops into an adult, breaking off in segments seen in feces. These segments contain more tapeworm eggs thus perpetuating the cycle.
An easy fix for an adult dog but more dangerous for a puppy or a very small dog as these worms can cause growth challenges and anemia.
Preventative care is the best care.
PSA: Make sure you’re constant with your application of flea and tick medicine like #bravecto even in the fall. Mom and I weren’t constant and even after a week of being back on it, mom brushed 15 ticks off of me last night😭. We’re both upset,frustrated and losing our minds...but have learned a very valuable lesson #fleaandtickprevention#petcare#catsofinstagram#catswithbowties

This month as a #chewyinfluencer I was lucky enough to try the Seresto flea and tick collar. It lasts for up to 8 months and repels and kills fleas and their larvae, ticks and lice plus it comes with clip on reflectors...bonus! I give it two paws up! Mahm was happy because she doesn’t love putting the spot treatment on me, so this was perfect and I am tick and flea free! 💙💙💙
Thanks @chewy (chewy.com) for sending me this for free in exchange for my honest review 😊
#fleaandtickprevention first #bushtick of the season found by our dog groomer. Bit scary for a small dog that does no bushwalks and goes near no long grass who gets medicated regularly. Check your fur babies, this could've been much scarier 5c piece comparison

As a #ChewyInfluencer , I received the oppawtunity to try out the new #ChewyPharmacy service earlier this month! My pawrents decided to use this oppawtunity to refill both of my current prescriptions (pictured above)! To place an Rx order on Chewy.com, just add the desired item(s) to your shopping cart & at checkout, you’ll be asked to provide @Chewy with all of your pet’s information, along with all of your veterinarian’s information! After that, you’ll be able to pick your preferred approval method, which means you can either have them contact your vet on your behalf OR you can send them your pet’s prescription yourself! Now, we placed our Rx order on a Wednesday, did all of the steps above in a breeze & opted to have Chewy contact our vet for the approval. The next day, we received an email from Chewy suggesting that we contact our vet to speed up the process & our vet's office informed us that they could provide us with both of those written prescriptions, however, we would actually need to go to their office to pick them up, as well as submit them to Chewy ourselves. My pawrents were able to pick up those prescriptions that afternoon & although you can fax or email Rx for food to Chewy, unfortunately, you can only mail in Rx for medications. So that Friday, we mailed off both written Rx & the following Tuesday, we were sent an email confirmation stating they received them. A little later that day, we received our shipping confirmation email & on Thursday, our Rx package arrived. Overall, my pawrents were happy that the process was pretty simple, besides an extra few days being added to our order. However, we know it was due to our vet being unable to provide Chewy with the Rx approval directly & once Chewy received both written Rx, we loved that everything was taken care of VERY quickly! So without a doubt, we would definitely recommend the new Chewy Pharmacy service to everypawdy & we will totally use it again, because their prices are furtastic, plus its super convenient for my pawrents to be able to order my Rx needs from the same place they purchase everything else for me! 🤗👨⚕️💊🐶🐾🐕🎀🐺👅📦💙
★ Rating: 4️⃣ out of 5️⃣ paws! 🐾
Roxie is very sick in the ICU. Despite apparent initial improvement with treatment of the ehrlichiosis with antibiotics, it soon became clear that her immune system started to attack her blood cells. She became extremely anemic and was transferred to a critical care facility yesterday and received a blood transfusion. She looked much better last night after some fluids and blood, but she's nowhere near out of the woods yet. We think she contracted erlichiosis before we adopted her last year and it was dormant in her body for a long time. Why it reared its ugly head now is unclear, but please folks, treat your dogs with monthly tick prevention! #potatodog#labsofinstagram#rescuedogsofinstagram#fleaandtickprevention

I can not speak enough about this topic! My pup, Koko, is living proof that there are irreversible neurological side effect and other terrible side effects to flea and tick “medicines” your vet prescribes you. Grocery store flea and tick medicines are no better. Had I known I was giving my pets a small dosage of poison 1 time almost 7 years ago, I would have NEVER gambled their lives like that. Koko is still battling seizures, and I will forever feel guilty for this 1 mistake. I urge you to learn from my mistake and research what flea and tick preventative your pets are on. If they have side effects on the label, consider switching to a non-pesticide/insecticide flea and tick preventative. 🙏🏽❤️🐶🐱
**Please keep in mind that only a few flea and tick preventatives are listed on this website but there are MANY more “medicines” that need to be added**. To read the entire warning, see below 👇
