Flea Control and Your Dog
Flea control is a vital part of pet ownership. You, your family and your pets can be affected by these tiny, blood-sucking pests. In fact, fleas have a role in the transmission of several canine and human disease-causing organisms and other parasites — and they're found throughout the country.
