Pets pick up fleas and ticks from contact with other animals and the environment – the park, the street, the garden.
This means that even the cleanest dog or cat – and the cleanest home – can harbour fleas and ticks. Their bites cause discomfort and can spread diseases such as Bartonella, which causes symptoms including lethargy and depression.
Some dogs and cats become allergic to flea saliva and develop a condition called Flea Allergy Dermatitis characterised by severe itching, pain and often secondary infection. In puppies and kittens, heavy flea infestations can cause severe blood loss and anaemia which can be life- threatening. As if this wasn’t enough, fleas can also transmit tapeworms to your pets – and to your family!
Ticks lurk in the long grass waiting to leap onto your pet for a feed. They can transmit infections such as Lyme Disease which can cause mild to severe arthritis in dogs, breathing difficulties in cats and can affect the nervous system in humans. Lice infestation can lead to anaemia, irritation, mild to severe dermatitis and generally causes poor health in both pets and humans too.
