Pest Preventer

Welcome to the Pest Preventer

Flea and Tick prevention is scary for many pet parents. The choices range from pills, to sometimes messy gels, to flea collars, powders, and shampoos, each presenting their own set of safety concerns and limitations on efficacy. The Pest Preventer takes fear out of the equation.

 

This simple tool asks a few "yes or no" questions—the very same questions real vets ask in the exam room—to determine which type of prevention is right for the pet, pet parent, and anyone else (furry or otherwise) living in the household.
