Fleas are best avoided if at all possible. Topical and oral flea prevention treatments have come a long way in recent years. It’s no longer necessary to spray your dog or use a flea dip formula. It is now possible to prevent fleas and ticks with topical drops and a pill. Fleas can be prevented with these treatments. The most important thing you can do for your pet before starting any medication, including flea and tick prevention, is to speak to a veterinarian.
