Cats - Dogs - Pets and Fleas

Fleas and animals are often seen together. The small black insect consumes blood and can cause illness, transmit disease, upset your cat or dog, which can harm families.

It is important to move quickly to fix the situation. The life of a flea is a month or longer, thus a whole new generation of bugs will develop if you are late.

First, it is established that a flea problem exists. If your cat or dog scratches frequently, the culprit may possibly be fleas. Fleas typically leap so if you lay a cloth where they are to be expected, you can see them. They may be seen as they travel about (a light cloth works best for showing up the small dark insects).

These insects are named egg, grub or larval, pupae and adult in four phases of their life. The woman lays eggs after a dinner (of blood). The larvae and pupae are the pre-adult phases, when the insect is ready to attack, dissolve, eat and place additional eggs.

Since the cat or dog has bugs from someplace, you may also need to check anywhere you are visiting your pet or any animals that are in contact with your dog or cat. Even a single location or animal may transmit it all over again with insects, thus it is extremely important to be careful.

It is essential to respond promptly by stopping the life cycle of the insect. Using the egg stage, it might be helpful to only comb the dog’s or the cat’s hair with a finetooth comb. However, eggs can fall on the surface, so you must take sure that every area frequented by the cat or dog is completely vacuumed.

If you have fleas already, consider trashing the pet’s bed. While rigorous cleaning may take care of the problem, clean meals and tapestries may be steamed to eliminate the residual fleas and eggs.

The biggest situation is never fleas! Prevention is the greatest choice because you can find the problems before they get serious. Remember these indicators and your cat or dog’s health and yours will be improved — and you will have no unwelcome guest in the house!
