Fleas are small parasites that can cause many problems for our furry friends. They multiply rapidly and can invade our homes.

Don’t underestimate ticks

 

Ticks are a serious pest because they can transmit important diseases to our four-legged friends and even to ourselves. They attach themselves to the skin and feed on the animal’s blood. It is therefore important to take preventive measures to avoid tick bites.

 

Protecting our pets from ticks

 

To prevent tick infestations, certain precautionary measures are essential. Firstly, it is advisable to regularly check your pet’s coat for ticks and remove them immediately if you find any. It is also advisable to use appropriate tick repellent products, such as collars, sprays or pipettes, which help to repel ticks. If you look at your furry friend’s entire body, it is important not to overlook small hidden areas, such as the inside of the ears. For a better view and maintenance, you can clean the ears beforehand with the MAIKAI ear cleaner from our “Hygiene & Care” range.

 

When walking your pet in wooded or grassy areas, it is best to keep your puppy on a leash and avoid areas where ticks are more likely to be present. By following these simple preventative measures you can help protect your furry friend from ticks and reduce the risk of tick-related diseases.
