A flea in the ear

There’s little doubt that fleas are very unwelcome guests on our pets or in our homes. As is the case with worms, your pet is likely to be at risk of flea infestation if you do not treat it with an appropriate product on a regular basis. And it’s not just the issue of fleas on your pet, if you spot adult fleas on your cat or dog, it is really only the beginning of the problem and most likely signifies that, eggs, larvae and pupae are already in the home.


Unfortunately the flea lifecycle doesn’t just involve the pet, it is also prevalent within the animal’s environment. Indeed, adult fleas on your pet only represent 5% of the problem, the remaining 95% (eggs, larvae and pupae) are in bedding, carpets, cracks and crevices in floors or furniture.


Most cats and dogs will suffer with flea infestation at some point in their lives so be sure to ask us for the best advice, treatment and prevention regimes to keep your pet and home flea-free.
