Ticks are becoming more and more common in both urban and rural areas. As a result, tick prevention is a major part of pet healthcare during the spring, summer, and occasionally fall months. It is important to know that not all tick prevention medicaitons are the same, and that they vary in the effectiveness, length of prevention, as well as their safety. Some medications used to control ticks are toxic to cats, so it is important to have the right medication. The veterinarians at Martensville Veterinary Hospital can recommend the safest and most effective tick prevention medications for your pet.
