Mosquitos Put the Bite on Our Pets


Ticks and fleas are an issue, but what about mosquitos? Aside from spreading heartworm disease (which the hope is that your pet is otherwise protected), mosquito bites itch. And because our pets are lower to the ground, they may be more susceptible to bites than people. Instead of being bitten once or twice, it’s not unusual to be bitten a dozen times. Aside from being annoying, the itching can cause infection.  A product with mosquito repellency is a good thing.
