Flea Prevention in the Cold Months?

It is a common misconception that pets don't need flea prevention as the temperatures drop. This is not the case especially here in Oklahoma and for dogs that live primarily indoors.

Fleas can survive outdoors in temps as low as 33 degrees for up to five days. 

It only takes one flea to cause an infestation and even if you keep your home and yard flea free you can still bring them in from other settings. 

So keep them protected all year long.

We personally use Seresto collars with great success but check with your veterinarian to make the best choice for your pet.

If your dog comes in to our salon or truck with fleas we will have Capstar on hand to kill the fleas immediately. We will also give your dog a soothing medicated bath and conditioning treatment. The medicated bath and condition come complimentary with your grooming service. 

The Capstar is not optional if fleas are present. We strive to keep our grooming environment safe and flea free and this is one of the ways we do it.
