Fleas and ticks haven’t thrived for millions of years by being easy to beat. In this episode, guest Lindsay Starkey, DVM, PhD, DACVM (Parasitology), shares some of her vast bug knowledge with host Katie Berlin, DVM. They discuss some of the reasons we still see so many fleas, ticks, and tick-borne diseases in practice, including why there’s no real “off season” for ectoparasites, why puppies in particular are at risk for falling through the cracks during that first year, and ways to make year-round prevention easier for pet owners.
