Flea control
Flea control has gotten a lot simpler and more effective over the years. Regular, year-round use of flea control is the best way to control fleas and prevent discomfort from flea bites as well as preventing diseases carried by fleas.  Please call the team at Peterborough West Animal Hospital to get our advice on the best flea control for your pet.  If we have not seen your pet (in the last year) we will need to book an appointment to examine your pet to be sure that fleas are causing the “itch” and then prescribe the correct medication for your pet(s).
