Diseases Associated With Fleas

Fleas can cause some of the following in your pet.

-Flea allergies – itchiness, redness, rash, hair loss etc.

-Tapeworms – due to ingesting fleas during grooming.

-Flea Bite Anemia – As fleas feed on your pets skin they suck blood from the body. A large number of fleas or fleas present for a long period of time can end up causing anemia.

-Mycoplasma (Feline Infectious Anemia) – Another condition contracted from fleas that can cause severe anemia by infecting red blood cells.

Fleas are not only a nuisance, they can cause severe diseases that affect your pets health and quality of life. Monthly flea prevention, every month, with a good flea product is essential to reducing the chance of your pet being affected by these significant diseases.

Prevention Tips

Your pet deserves to live a parasite-free life, and prevention is much easier and healthier than treatment.

Every month (even cooler months) use a reputable flea prevention product. This “day and age” you get what you pay for. If your flea prevention products comes from a “Big Box Store” and 3 months costs the same amount as 1 month of a well-known product, then it’s not going to work well...
