Most veterinarians would recommend that all cats and dogs in a household be treated regularly for fleas and ticks, and we agree! The best way to do this is through preventative treatment rather than dealing with invasive fleas and dangerous tick bites later on. Flea and tick medications, whether by prescription or over-the-counter, are proven to be safe and effective.

Typically, pet owners need to visit their regular veterinarian’s office for an examination once per year. This examination is required to prescribe flea and tick medication, so you can’t just get a prescription once and then refill that prescription for the rest of your furry friend’s life.

You’ve probably noticed that online telemedicine for human beings recently exploded in popularity. Perhaps you took a step back and realized it’s less common for cats and dogs to be treated in the same virtual manner. State regulations on online pet telemedicine haven’t really caught up to human telehealth, but we’re slowly getting there!

Pawp is excited to offer one of the first online VCPR-backed solutions for prescription preventative pet care in the states of New York, New Jersey, Michigan, and Virginia. Everything is handled virtually, and you won’t need an in-person visit for the flea and tick prescription! We’re thrilled to launch Pawp Membership with Flea & Tick Protection and intend to expand to other states as regulations allow!

For other states, we offer an OTC plan for Pawp Membership with Flea & Tick Protection to save you time and money while treating your pets for fleas and ticks.
