Many people consider their cat or dog to be a part of their family, so naturally a fair share of pets tag along when it’s time to go on vacation. If you wouldn’t dream of leaving your furry friend at home during your travels, you should keep your cat or dog’s wellness in mind while on the road. Specifically, consider the threat of fleas. Now that spring’s here and summer’s on the horizon, most parts of the United States are warming up, creating the ideal conditions for fleas to grow and multiply. To ensure that your pet is free of these aggravating insects, keep him from dense foliage where fleas may be lurking. Inspect your pet’s coat each day with a special comb that can catch fleas and their eggs. Lastly, give your pet a flea bath prior to leaving town, as its effects can ward off fleas for weeks after you apply treatment.
