Warmer weather means an increase in pests that can irritate and even harm your dogs and cats. Whether your animals spend more time indoors or outdoors, the flea and tick treatments available at Sam's Club® can protect them from the bites and diseases these pests may carry.
When choosing the right flea and tick treatment, it helps to understand the formulas available for your pet. Cat flea treatment comes in options for small and large cats. There are formulas that are designed specifically for kittens that are eight weeks and older. For older cats, formulas like those from Advantage® II treat pets between five and nine pounds.
Dog flea treatments go by weight to ensure your pet receives enough of the medication to be effective. Options like Frontline® Plus come in formulas for dogs up to 22 pounds, 23 to 44 pounds, 45 to 88 pounds and 89 to 132 pounds. Make sure you weigh your dog and choose the formula for that weight to avoid making your pet sick. Choosing a formula for a smaller pet and using it on a larger one won't be as effective.
There are also flea collars for dogs and cats that help prevent infestations for up to eight months. These collars protect against fleas and ticks on puppies and dogs that are older than seven weeks. Flea collars also go by weight and come in choices for dogs and cats, so make sure you read the labels to choose the right one for your pet.
Once you treat your pets, you'll also want to use a flea and tick treatment for the home. Sam's Club carries sprays, powders and other formulas that help you get rid of any fleas and ticks in your home. You'll also find pet grooming supplies that will help you keep your pets comfortable and free from tangles that can help ticks hide.
