When an animal is infested by parasites, the latter do not stay in its coat, because they call upon it only to feed. While waiting for their next meal, the pests lodge in its environment. Thus, it is important to know that once your animal is contaminated, 90% of the parasites settle in your home!

These parasites are not all mature and able to bite your pet. They can also be eggs or larvae that will develop into adults that will then infect your pet. Then, these same parasites will reproduce, lay eggs, etc… An endless cycle of contamination…

To avoid this, it is necessary to set up a shock procedure for a maximum effectiveness, namely, to couple the treatment of the animal and the treatment of the habitat. At the beginning of the parasite season, you can, at first, opt for natural products with a repulsive effect. Treating your dog or female dog with appropriate anti-parasite products will deter parasites that might try to lodge in its coat to feed on its blood.
