Irie loves to roll in the yard. Really, really roll in the yard.
Usually it’s not that she’s rolling to roll on some found treasure (that’s Tiki’s specialty.) And usually it’s not because she’s got an itch that she just can’t scratch.
But we always worry that she’s got an itch–because flea and tick season is definitely approaching. Last week, Irie was at the vet for her annual checkup and the subject of flea and tick protection came up. You’ll remember that last year Tiki came down with an unexplained fever that had her on an IV for two days. The vet was concerned that it could be a tick fever…so, since then, we keep a close eye on the possibility of fleas and ticks.
One flea and tick prevention that’s available through your vet is Vectra. Vectra 3D® is a broad spectrum parasite control against flea and tick control. (For cat, only use Vectra for Cats and Kittens; do NOT use Vectra 3D® on cats.)
Vectra 3D® works by killing fleas BEFORE they have a chance to bite your dog (which, in turn, gives them the opportunity to transmit diseases to your dog.) It both kills and repels adult fleas while it also controls flea eggs, larvae and pupae that are about to become adults.
