It’s heating up rather quickly in Denver! Fleas and ticks love warmer weather, so they come out in droves in the spring and summer. Considering how warm it is already, we’re anticipating an early and lengthy flea and tick season this year. Don’t dismiss the problems these pests cause when they infest your pets: Fleas can cause anemia and trigger allergies, and one tick bite can transmit numerous dangerous diseases.

Prevention medications are the best way to keep fleas and ticks away from your pets. The right medication options for your pets will depend on their habits, like how often they’re outside. If you’re not sure which preventative medications are right for your pet, call Overland Animal Hospital & Pet Resort at 303-922-5500 and schedule an appointment.
