Clontarf Vets & the Fight against Fleas

Fleas!

Fleas can trouble your pet all year round – but they like heat so summer is flea season!

Individual animals react differently to having fleas and present with wide range of symptoms in Anicare’s Dublin Vet clinics. Some will simply be very itchy, which is bad enough in itself (imagine the feeling of having little creatures crawling over your body and biting you all the time!). Some dogs and cats, however, are highly allergic to flea saliva, and it’s these poor pets that suffer from flea allergic dermatitis, with severe skin irritation and hair loss. For these animals it may only take one or two fleas to cause a marked reaction, and they sometimes scratch until they bleed, and get infected sores. Fleas can also carry other disease such as tapeworm and can bite humans as well as pets.

So remember – use a flea product for your pet and use it regularly.
