Hmm. I would think that a dog that just goes in and out to do his business is not at as great a risk as a cat. Cats stay out for hours and can get in to all sorts of mischievous circumstances. In Blakeney Green's case the cat is a barn cat. Barn cats can be exposed to all sorts of yucky things - rats, mice, chickens; just about anything barn related. SO, I would certainly give it flea control all year, mostly because of staying outside so much longer than the average dog in the winter. Hope this helps....but of course a vet probably is the best one to ask.
