Tackling Fleas and Ticks
Pet care in the pharmacy

With 51% of households owning a pet in the UK1, there is a huge opportunity for community pharmacies to support pet owners on pet health issues such as fleas and ticks. This module will emphasise the importance of this category to your pharmacy and explore how you can help your customers manage flea and tick infestations on their pets and in their home.
