Do you notice your pet scratching more than usual? If so, your pet might be suffering from a case of fleas. Your precious furry friend needs you to help them because a flea infestation can have more serious health implications than simply itching and scratching. Fleas feed on your pet’s blood, making young or frail pets weak and at risk of becoming anaemic. If you suspect your pet has fleas, flea treatments are an easy solution. You can check for fleas on your pet by brushing them with a fine-toothed comb while they are standing over a white surface such as a piece of paper. You will be able to clearly see the fleas or flea droppings which fall off onto the white surface. If you add a few drops of water and these black specks turn reddish brown, this will let you know that your pet has fleas.
Keep in mind that a flea treatment is not as simple as just removing the fleas from your pet. For every flea that is living on your cat or dog, there are likely hundreds of larvae and eggs hiding around your home. It is very important that you treat the fleas as well as eradicate them from your home because they can survive in your furniture and bedding for months and you don’t want your pet to be re-infected.
It is possible to prevent fleas by giving both your pet and your home a regular treatment. Keep your pet safe and flea-free with our great selection of high quality effective flea treatments.
