Mar 2, 2021

As a pet owner, you have a responsibility to protect your furry companion from flea and tick infestations. While there are over a thousand identified species of fleas, ironically, the main culprit for dogs is the cat flea, known scientifically as Ctenocephalides. Ticks, on the other hand, latch onto animals and swell as they feed on their host’s blood.

Here are the top 10 flea and tick products that can eliminate these pests which are causing misery and pain to your pets.
