Fall Heat Wave Brings Uninvited Guests to Torrance!
Home » Fall Heat Wave Brings Uninvited Guests to Torrance!
Unfortunately, along with our unseasonably warm late summer and early fall, conditions are just perfect for fleas! In fact, October is traditionally the worst month out here for fleas! Fleas are not just a nuisance but can also carry many, potentially deadly, diseases. Just a single adult female flea can lay up to 50 eggs a day over her lifetime, which can very quickly lead to a nasty infestation. Here at Harbor Animal Hospital we carry the latest in flea control for your pets including both topical and oral products. We strive to keep ahead of the game by carrying top of the line flea control. Trifexis® is well loved by many clients as in a single monthly pill your dog will not only be protected from fleas, but Trifexis® also kills heartworms, roundworms, hookworms and whipworms. We also carry Vectra 3D® for dogs that not only kills and repels fleas but also ticks, mosquitoes, flies, lice and some mites for when more than just flea control is needed. Revolution® for cats is a wonderful product that is applied topically once a month and kills fleas, heartworms, roundworms, hookworms and ear mites. Vectra® for cats is also a topical form of flea control that kills fleas very rapidly!!! Comfortis®, like Trifexis®, is a monthly oral pill that kills fleas and can be used in both dogs and cats. We also carry products for your convenience that can be used in your home and yard to help kill the fleas and larvae in the environment. We take flea and parasite control very seriously and would be happy to help counsel you to find the right solution for you and your pet.
