Did you know 1 in 5 cats and 1 in 10 dogs have fleas?
Fleas can make life miserable, biting not only your pet, but the whole family. The saliva in the flea bite can cause FAD (flea allergic dermatitis) which can lead to secondary skin infection. Fleas also carry tapeworms and cat scratch disease.
An infestation usually begins 6-8 weeks before fleas become visible. If your unprotected pet brings a flea into your home, it will feed on the animal and begin to breed. The eggs, larvae and pupae develop in your warm home environment. This infestation can take up to 3 months to clear.
There are now many effective flea preparations, meaning infestations can be a thing of the past. If you are concerned about fleas book an appointment so we can recommend the best product for you.
