Fleas and Ticks

June 1, 2017

Fleas

 

•Fleas thrive when weather is warm and can be a year-round problem.

 

•Female fleas begin laying eggs within 24 hours of selecting your pet as a host and can produce up to 50 eggs each day.

 

•Signs of flea problems range from mild redness to severe scratching that can lead to open sores and skin infections or “hot spots”

 

•Pets can become anemic with heavy flea infestation, develop an allergy to flea saliva, or become infected with tapeworms after ingesting a flea

Ticks

 

 •Ticks are most often found around your pet’s neck, in the ears, between the folds of the legs and toes.

 

•Ticks can spread serious infectious diseases (such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and others)

 

•Prompt removal of ticks is very important because it lessens the chance of disease transmission from the tick to your pet.

 

•If you take your pet to tick-prone areas during camping or hiking trips make sure to examine them for ticks upon returning home.

 

•Tick removal needs to be done properly and we’re happy to take care of the process.
