Defleaing your pet is one of the easiest thing you can do to help give your pet a happy life. 

Have you ever had headlice? You probably have. So you know how annoying and itchy they can get. This is exactly how it feels for you pet, except they cannot tell you when the itching is getting unbearable. Fleas can go unnoticed until you find one has bitten you, and this can be prevented easily. 

Fleas are more than just an annoyance. They also carry diseases such as tapeworms and typhus. Fleas can be removed once they have been caught. but PREVENTION is always better than cure. 

Ticks are also more than just a small bug that can latch onto the skin. Ticks carry Lyme Disease. This disease can be deadly to your furry friend, so we offer a two in one solution so you don’t have to worry about these two parasites making a home on your pet. 

At Beach Avenue Animal Hospital we sell one of the great deflea and tick brands Bravecto (dog) and Revolution (cat). This treatment can be given to your pet once, and will protect them from fleas AND ticks for a full three months. This is a prescription drug that we can administer to you, as long as we see your pet at least once a year.
