Fall is Flea Season

Fall is flea season,  even though you may notice that ticks seem to be less of a problem warm fall weather is great for fleas.  It is particularly bad if you go into the cooler months with fleas already in your house, the fleas multiply in the warm areas of your house.  The bottom line is to keep putting flea and tick protection on your dogs and cats through out the fall until it gets really cold for a few weeks. Here in Long Island that is usually not until December.

Dealing with the heat

  .In really hot weather be sure to take it slow with your dogs on walks, forget about completing your usual distance , just take a short walk and find someplace in the shade to hang with your dog outside for a while and bring some water and a bowl along for drinking.  Keep cool out there!
