Fleas and ticks are external parasites that can cause discomfort and serious illness, even death, in your Clumber Spaniel. While the coat of the Clumber Spaniel is thick and soft, making it hard for these parasites to make it to the skin to attach, the pests are persistent and will fine a way. Prevention is key!
- Examine your Clumber Spaniel frequently for fleas and ticks.
- Avoid “tick habitats”, such as heavily wooded area of tall grass.
- Keep grass cut short and bushes cut back in your yard.
- Vacuum rugs, clean bedding and launder other cloth items your Clumber Spaniel may use.
There are many safe, effective, and easy to administer flea and tick control products. Some flea control products are only active against adult fleas, where as other products can target other stages of the flea life cycle, such as eggs and larvae. Some products we have used successfully are the Seresto collar and Vectra 3D topical. However, ALWAYS consult with your veterinarian to determine the best product to use on your dog for your situation.
