It's that time of year again...fleas and ticks

Pay special attention to flea and tick prevention in the spring and early summer months.

Although fleas can be a problem for your pets all year, flea populations typically explode about 5-6 weeks after the weather starts to warm up. Black specks on your pet or in your dog's bed may be "flea dirt" - the fecal matter from adult fleas. Frontline plus is one medication you can use that works on both fleas and ticks, but the label has to say plus. There are many other brands available, but this is our vet's recommendation.

They might not get as much attention as fleas, but ticks can be even more dangerous. Ticks lie in wait for unsuspecting animals—including humans—to brush by their hiding places on weeds, grasses, bushes, or other leafy vegetation. Then, they attach themselves to the pet, take a long blood meal, and fall off into the environment (where the female tick lays her eggs and dies).

We found a coupon located here on the Frontline website that's valid at the Vet's office.
Frontline is also available at several online pet stores including
We've used this company in the past and have been very happy. The shipping time is very fast and there is usually a discount or promotion. They are currently offering $5 off plus free shipping on orders of $39 or more.
This subject is boring, but important :)
