Are Flea Meds Necessary in the Fall?

As the cooler weather of autumn falls upon us, many pet owners think they can stop giving their pets flea and tick preventatives. But doing so is a mistake. Cooler weather doesn’t kill fleas and ticks. In fact, deer ticks are at their peak during the fall and spring. Veterinarians recommend using flea and tick medications until well into the cold winter months. In warmer climates, where the temperatures don’t drop below freezing on a regular basis, it’s necessary to use flea and tick medications throughout the year.

There are different treatments you can use to prevent and treat flea infestations.
