Yes it is true fleas and ticks love the rain!

Posted by admin

Rain, rain go away!

Not only do we hate rain we hate it even more knowing that fleas and ticks love it.

These parasites seek out shelter from the sun in cool, damp places.  The rain is not a deterrent for them in fact both fleas and ticks thrive in the rain.  Fleas love wet moisture conditions and the shelter of rain-fed grass and plants.  Ticks love the long wet grass using it as a passageway to your pets body. 

With this is mind after walks, especially in areas where the grass is overgrown be sure to check your pet for both fleas and ticks.
