VCA Herndon-Reston Animal Hospital

Flea and Tick Control

Fleas cause irritation & dermatitis.
Think your pet has "just a few fleas"? A little can become a lotâ€"fast; before you know it, your home is crawling with uninvited guests and your poor pet is scratching like crazy. Skin irritation, hair loss and even anemia are the potential side effects from untreated flea infestation.

Ticks can lead to serious diseases.
Ticks thrive in wooded, grassy and damp areas. If they feast on your pet, they can cause serious illness such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted feverâ€"which can lead to arthritis.

We recommend using Frontline Flea and Tick Prevention year-round for the prevention of fleas, ticks, and their related diseases.
