Flea Pills for Dogs

Besides causing your dog intense itching, flea infestations can lead to serious health problems, including skin allergies, hot spots, anemia, tapeworms and Bartonella infection. This makes it all the more important to discuss dog flea prevention strategies with your veterinarian. Flea pills are a convenient option for administering preventives to your pet. They often come in easy-to-dose chewables portioned for your dog’s weight. Some provide multiple months of protection in a single dose.
