TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - With spring in the air, veterinarians are reminding pet owners to protect their furry friends.
It's flea and tick season, which means your pets can easily catch unwanted parasites and sickness.
The Airport Veterinary Clinic in Terre Haute says taking early steps for prevention is critical.
"The best thing you can do is prevent it. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, you've heard that saying before. Now is the best time to get your pet started on flea and tick and heart worm prevention," said Megan Bilyeu, Airport Veterinary Clinic practice manager.
The clinic says to treat your pets every thirty days with a topical medication or a pill.
Talking with your vet about these options will help keep your pet in good health.
