Ticks and fleas are a well-known problem for pet owners, and they’re particularly common in cats and dogs. Their furry coats are the perfect environment for these pesky creatures, which can cause a range of health problems, from allergic reactions to tick-borne illnesses.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to deal with ticks and fleas. From the warning signs to look out for, to important treatments and preventions, here at Asda Money we’ve put together our top tips for cat and dog owners.

Although there’s a lot to remember when it comes to ticks and fleas, they generally are very treatable. Always ask your vet for advice if you’re worried or unsure about anything, and if your pet shows any of the more severe symptoms, try and get them to the vet as soon as possible.
The more serious problems such as Lyme disease are fairly rare, but it’s especially important to ensure you have pet insurance, just in case the unexpected does happen. Vet’s fees can soon start to add up, and this way you’re covered at a time that can be very stressful.
Here at Asda Money we have a range of pet insurance cover types available. Find out more about Asda Money Pet Insurance provided by Legal & General here. Pre-existing medical conditions are not covered.
