Fleas

Fleas

The vampire of the parasite world also known as FLEAS can become your worst nightmare. 

I know what your thinking how can something so small become such a problem? Well that's easy with the ability to lay 50 eggs a day a female flea can create a swarm of at least 2000 fleas in her short lifetime. 

The common misconception is that if your pet doesn't go outside or isn't around other animals they're safe but unfortunately that is not the case. Flea eggs can lay dormant in many types of environments whilst waiting for a host to live of off, it takes just one of these eggs bought in from a shoe or even picked up by a gust of wind to create a problem. 

Prevention is the best form of Protection. As fleas have a continuous cycle a monthly treatment will need to be used, this will be in the form of a chew, tablet or most commonly a liquid spot on. some great brands are 

Cats: 

  • Advocate ( also includes worming )
  • Revolution ( also includes worming )
  • Advantage
  • Frontline Plus 

Dogs: 

  • Advocate ( also includes worming )
  • Revolution ( also includes worming )
  • Advantage
  • Frontline Plus
  • Sentinel ( also includes worming )
  • Nexgard
  • Nexgard Spectra ( also includes worming )

These products release into the bloodstream effectively killing Adult fleas. 

so get on top of the issue and keep your pets flea free.
