Parasite control is important for dogs and cats

Parasite control in pets often seems to be a complex topic. Everybody knows that they ought to deworm and deflea their pet, but that's about as far as it goes. When the topic is investigated further, many questions come up.

How often should you deworm and deflea? Once a month, once a quarter or once a year?

What products should you use? Spot-ons or tablets? From supermarkets, pet shops or vets? Or can you buy them online?
