All year round
Some people think that fleas, ticks and lice are just a problem in the summer. They’re wrong. Your pet needs to be protected regularly whatever the season or it will be susceptible to the irritation – and more serious problems – that these bugs can bring.
Spring As the weather warms up, fleas and ticks start to breed quicker and quicker.
Summer The summer months are when your pet is at the most risk. The temperature and humidity can quickly lead to huge infestations and massive problems for your pet and your family.
Autumn This is the time of year when it’s particularly important to guard against tick infestations and the re-emergence of fleas – especially when you turn on the central heating.
Winter It might be cold outside but your warm home makes an ideal breeding ground for fleas – the risk to your pet never goes away
