Treatment of the dog from ectoparasites is a mandatory measure designed to protect the health of the pet. The bites of fleas, ticks and mosquitoes not only bring the animal discomfort, but also create a risk of infection with infectious diseases.
There is a myth that it is enough to treat a pet from parasites 2 times a year: in spring and autumn. But in practice, treatment from parasites must be carried out all year round. Fleas are active at any time, and the dog can become infected with them, regardless of season or temperature. Veterinarians also recommend treating the dog from ticks regularly: from snow to snow.

And if the city dog is unlikely to meet an infected fox, then getting a bite from an infected relative is as easy as shelling pears. Good nutrition and good health will not protect against rabies and many other dangerous viruses. The only protection is annual vaccination.
Timely vaccination is the protection of not only the dog, but also the owner, as well as everyone around. Infected pets themselves become carriers. They transmit the virus down the chain: to people and other animals in contact. Therefore, to the question whether a dog needs vaccination, experts unequivocally answer in the affirmative. This is a mandatory procedure that is not just possible, but must be performed. Absolutely every dog and strictly on schedule. Continue reading
