Ticks and fleas are hardy little critters that can wreak havoc on your dog and home. These tiny, blood sucking pests multiply quickly and can be found everywhere your dog might roam–from the dog park to your backyard to your living-room carpet.
With over 200 species in North America1, fleas hold the title for the most common ectoparasite today. Reddish brown in color and totally wingless, these insects are impressive jumpers, boasting a 5-inch vertical leap that makes it easy for them to hop onto your unsuspecting dog.2
Ticks, on the other hand, don’t jump. They’re classified as arachnids and more closely resemble a spider in appearance and behavior.3 Instead of jumping onto your dog, they reach out and latch on when your dog brushes up against them.
Ticks and fleas thrive in every single state in the United States. Learn how to protect your dog with Credelio® (lotilaner). It kills ticks and fleas fast and lasts all month long.4,5
