Do indoor pets need parasite control? Do pets need parasite control in the winter?
The short answer is yes. Parasites can still find your indoor pet by entering your home using you, other people, other animals and other objects as vehicles. Even during the colder months, many parasites can still survive, hibernate or reproduce, especially once they have made it inside a warm environment. Your pet can be exposed to parasites at the doggy daycare, kennel and even in your home.
