We simply cannot live without them! Pets, especially dogs and cats, have become integral parts of our families. Pet parents are now ensuring that their ‘fur babies’ are given the best of treatment, from meals to love and attention.
I have personally seen how the love of a pet can have positive impacts on a person’s life. Studies have shown that the bond between a pet and their owner can decrease stress levels and depression and increase fitness levels, socialisation and happiness.
For all canine and feline owners, the moment ticks and fleas appear is a sure moment of panic. Ticks and fleas are parasites which attach to your pet by inserting their mouth parts into their skin and they feed on their blood. Not only do they cause itching and severe discomfort, their bites can lead to infections and diseases (Lyme Disease).
