Spring is here! Are your pets protected?

Spring has sprung and with the return of warm weather is the chance to enjoy the outdoors in all of its glory. There’s nothing like going on an adventure with your best friend by your side! It’s important to protect them from parasites and pests such as fleas and ticks that you can encounter along the way. Even if your best friend doesn’t go outside to explore (such as your house cat), keeping them on a preventive is the best way to ensure you or your other pets don’t bring in unwanted pests. 

There are many forms of prevention for fleas and ticks including topical medication, oral medication, and collars. Learn about the products we use at Wayside for dogs and cats and have no fear exploring outside this Spring with your best friend being protected with preventatives like these from Bayer! 

Seresto Collars 

This flea and tick collar lasts for 8 months! While many have experienced flea and tick collars before, this is unlike any you’ve ever tried because it is incredibly efficient. There is no residue, no odor, and there is no need to remove it during bathing or if your pet gets into water. Perhaps the best benefit is the convenience because unlike monthly preventions, once you put this on you are good to go for 8 months of protection.

Advantage Multi 

This is a monthly topical prevention that goes on the back of your pets neck / in between their shoulder blades. This product prevents heartworm disease, kills fleas, and treats and controls roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and sarcoptic mange in dogs. The benefit of this product is the range of prevention covered but it’s important to notice that tick prevention is not included within this product. So you would need to combine a tick prevention with this, such as the Seresto Collar. Topicals typically take up to 24 hours to dry and refraining from bathing your pet during this time is recommended. If you have little ones at home, be sure to monitor that they don’t come into contact with where this product was applied on your pet until it fully dries. 

K9 Advantix II

This monthly topical repels fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes through contact as well as kills lice and repels biting flies. Checkout our Whiskers and Wags store to purchase and rebate options! 

Advantage II

This monthly topical kills fleas, kills flea eggs and larvae as well as treats and controls lice infestations. Checkout our Whiskers and Wags store to purchase and rebate options! 

Always consult with your veterinarian to figure out the best preventative options for you and your pet. Please note: while some of these products are available for anyone to purchase from our Whiskers and Wags retail store at Wayside Waifs, some are not due to also containing heartworm prevention which we are unable to sell to the public unless they have adopted the animal from us within a year. Please talk to your vet about purchasing products with heartworm prevention as these are also very important to keep your pet current on.
