Pests like fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes are not only bothersome to humans but can also pose significant health risks to your cherished pets:
- Fleas: Fleas can cause itching, irritation, and allergic reactions in pets. Scratching and biting at flea bites can lead to skin problems and secondary infections.
- Ticks: Ticks can transmit diseases to both humans and pets, including Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Regular tick checks and prevention are essential.
- Mosquitoes: Mosquitoes can transmit heartworm disease, a potentially fatal condition for dogs and cats. Protecting your pets from mosquito bites is vital.
