Protecting your pet from fleas, mites and ticks keeps them healthy, as these are often carriers of serious diseases.
Puppies and kittens can be treated from six weeks of age. This will last for four weeks and should be repeated at four weekly intervals.
If you don't have a regular flea prevention plan in place, your pet can become infected with tapeworms. This is because fleas are the intermediate hosts (carriers) for tapeworms.
