What is the best flea and tick preventative for your pet? Topical? Chewable? Collars? Here at Pet Street we have a variety of options based on your lifestyle and that of your pet.

Things to consider when choosing a flea preventative: duration of protection, mode of action, age of your pet, sensitivities such as skin or stomach issues, activities...how likely is it for your pet to lose a collar or to get hung up on a collar?

Fact: 1 flea can produce 2,000 eggs over it’s lifetime!
