Are parasites making a home on your furry friend

Vampires may be all the rage in the film industry these days, but in reality, bloodsucking pests are not as fun as they look on the big screen.

Vampires may be all the rage in the film industry these days, but in reality, bloodsucking pests are not as fun as they look on the big screen. In fact, fleas and ticks can seriously irritate and harm your furry friend. According to MyPet.com, female fleas can consume up to 15 times their bodyweight in blood and, if an infestation goes untreated, a single flea can live on your pet and continue sucking its blood for up to two months. In addition to itching, flea bites can transmit disease and lead to health problems, as well as discomfort for your pet.

To get rid of bloodsuckers and provide relief for your pup, use a product like Hartz® UltraGuard Plus® Flea & Tick Dog Shampoo with Aloe. This flea shampoo with aloe extract will nourish and moisturize your dog's fur, and soothe its itching bites, as well as kill any fleas and ticks and prevent against re-infestation for up to two weeks.
