Pet tip: Over-the-counter flea and tick products
Protecting pets from fleas and ticks is an important part of responsible pet ownership. Although there are many brands of over-the-counter flea and tick products available at supermarkets and pet supply stores, it is critical to read labels, and consult with a veterinarian before using them on your pet. These products might contain ingredients that could harm pets and children.
