“It’s That Time of Year”… Again

The time of year when we believe Spring brings out the “bugs”.



The ugly truth? “That time of year” is year-round. As long as there are optimal food supply and optimal temperature, these “bugs” survive.

“Bugs”? I’m referring to everything from houseflies to ticks. Ick!

I have one indoor cat, Roh. Parasite control is important to me, and Roh isn’t even at high risk. In fact, I am at more risk than he is as I’m a huge fan of gardening.

Although, I have seen him chow down on a housefly or two. The risks may be low, but the potential is there.

Tapeworm medication is not on Roh’s bucket list, but his wellbeing is on mine.

Protect your pet.
