This winter has been an ongoing roller coaster of temperature changes that has left your pet susceptible to fleas year round, so the upcoming spring weather is yet another reason to keep your pup protected from these annoying pests.   

According to PetCarerRx, as the weather gets warmer, flea counts increase. In ideal temperatures ranging from 70 to 85 degrees, these parasites are known to flourish and make their return in search for hosts, like your dog, to provide them with a new home. Pets and Parasites claimed that the presence of these irritants can leave your dog vulnerable to a variety of issues, such as itchy, irritated skin, hair loss, allergies and the ability to attract other contagions like worms.

As the weather changes, it's important to practice caution and to check your dog for signs of the pesky bugs. To keep these insects at bay in the humid months and throughout the year, treat your pet with Hartz® UltraGuard® Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs to eliminate and prevent fleas for up to seven months at a time.
