Types of tick and flea prevention

Ticks feed on the blood of dogs and are common in warm and humid environment like Singapore. They can cause diseases in dogs and difficult to get rid of if they infest your dog and home.

We advise all dogs to be on some form of tick control for a peace of mind. Even with tick control in place, a dog can still get bitten by ticks. The tick control will kill the tick so don’t be surprised to see dead ticks on your dog.

A common cause for ticks in dogs where tick control is in place is due to poor application method. Please read the label for instructions and if unsure, ask your vet or look at youtube videos.
