Clean your house and yard
Keeping the area of your house and yard clean is very impawtant to protect your pets from fleas and ticks. Tall grass is a good starting point for fleas to jump onto our feline and canine friends.

Keep the area open and clean as much as possible to avoid giving a home to ticks and fleas.
You can use flea-and-tick solution grooming items to groom your pets.

You can also check their body and look through their fur when your pets return from the outdoors. If you take your pet to a grooming shop, they’ll be able to give you some advice. This will increase the chance of finding fleas and ticks under the coats of your pets and getting rid of them.

Brushing their coat every time before stepping inside a house to remove all specks of dirt and new fleas or ticks that just hopped on.
