Ticks

Ticks are a common parasite that can be found on our dogs during the warmer months.  Ticks can carry a variety of different diseases, many of which can be fatal.  Tick born diseases cause non-specific signs and are not easily treatable.  The best control is prevention by repelling and killing ticks with Vectra 3d.  Vectra 3d can start killing ticks as early as 2 hours after application and prevent the transmission of tick-born diseases.
