We’re always learning about new flea and tick products for dogs, but few are safe for cats. That’s not the case this time. Newly released product, Seresto, is a flea and tick collar that’s safe for cats & dogs alike! Even better, it lasts for 8 months at a time. Watch Dr. Lambert apply a Seresto collar to our office pup, Archer.

-Ticks don’t have to bite to be killed, so it can help diseases  – like Lyme – from being transmitted.
