Convincing clients to invest in flea preventives BEFORE they spy a flea can be a touchy subject. Prevent the conversation from becoming too prickly with this handout.

Have you ever had a client insist that her inside-only dog lives in too clean of an environment to possibly get fleas or been shushed by a client on the topic of flea preventives because he's never seen the pernicious parasite on his cat? Don't let client excuses make your patients' skin crawl. Use this handout to help answer their questions or to start the conversation on finding the best flea preventive for their pets.
