Dogs Fleas

  • My vet says shop bought products don’t work - is this true?

  • No, the Spot On is non-systemic, meaning it does not go through the skin into the dog’s adipose (fatty) tissue or bloodstream. Washing your dog means you wash away the spot on and thus the product won't work anymore.
  • Can my pets get worms from fleas?
  • Yes, fleas can carry a type of tape worm, therefore it is important to have a regular flea and worm control regime.
