Myth: If your pet has fleas you’ll always be able to spot them.
Truth: Fleas are fast and don’t want to be spotted, so even a thorough search can overlook them. And all it takes is a quick walk near a nest of fleas to expose your pet to a whole new batch.
Have a safe and happy Halloween!

HOLIDAY STRESS ISN’T JUST FOR HUMANS
Lots of unfamiliar faces and loud talking and laughter can stress your pet out. Exercise your dog beforehand and give them a special chew toy to keep them distracted. If they still seem stressed, put them in a quiet room away from all of the commotion. Be sure cats have access to a quiet room where they will probably hide all on their own.
