Flea and Tick Prevention

Flea and Tick Prevention and Treatment

Part of keeping your dog happy and healthy requires you to find ways to prevent flea and tick infestations. Our Dogfather Mobile grooming services will treat your pet for fleas or help you to prevent ticks from latching onto your dog or cat. Let our mobile grooming van come to you to keep your pet's coat looking great and flea free. We serve most towns in Fairfield, Middlesex, and New Haven counties, making it easier for us to help your pet with tick prevention and flea treatment. 


Why Tick Prevention Is Important

Ticks are common in any grassy or wooded areas throughout Connecticut, and one of the biggest concerns are the types of ticks your pet will encounter. The ticks that cause Lyme Disease are common in the Northeast. If a tick gets onto your pet, it can also bite you too, leading to illness. Prevent this situation by taking care to prevent ticks from biting your pet with topical medications. We can apply this product to your pet professionally, so you don't have to. You can feel assured that your pet won't get tick-borne illnesses from one of these parasites when you have us use preventative medication for your pet.

Help Your Pet Get Relief from Fleas

Fleas are another problem for even indoor cats and dogs. They can cause severe itching and hair loss. While fleas proliferate at summery temperatures between 65- and 80-degrees Fahrenheit, they could impact your pet all year long, especially if they get into your warm house. Fleas don't discriminate between pets and people. If you have fleas biting your cat or dog in your home, they will likely also bite you too.

Flea prevention medications applied topically to your pets deter these insects from biting your cat or dog, but if your pet already has fleas, you need to let us treat it. Since we must fumigate the interior of our van after treating a flea-infested pet, we only schedule flea treatment visits at the end of the day.

Combine Flea Treatment and Tick Prevention with Our Grooming Services

If your pet needs help with avoiding or getting treatment for parasites on its fur, let us know. We can combine the service with our bathing and grooming services for a complete pampering package for your pet. Getting your pet looking great and staying healthy is as simple as letting us bring our bathing and fur care supplies, flea treatment, and tick prevention materials to you.
