Fleas! These ugly little parasites not only cause bad itching, they can also be carriers for worms and other diseases, and many animals are allergic to flea bites. Pets can develop a painful irritation called flea allergy dermatitis, or FAD.
Flea infestations used to be a real problem – almost impossible to get rid of. But with today’s products and treatments, your pet can live a flea-free life.
The best way to stop fleas in their tiny tracks is to break the reproductive cycle. Over-the-counter products aren’t effective and can be toxic. Your vet can prescribe treatments that are safe, effective and easy to administer. Some are applied directly to the skin; others are administered orally. Check with your vet to see which one is best for your pet – and make those pesky fleas flee!
