The danger of dog fleas and ticks
- Fleas are no less than killers are. They cause considerable harm to pets and gradually makes the pet weak and feeble.
- Dog fleas carry the risk of tapeworm infection in pets. Fleas carry tapeworm eggs in them and when the dog grooms itself, it in-digests the fleas and gradually the tapeworm eggs. These worms stick to the intestine of the dog and causes infection in the same.
- Dog flea’s sucks blood from the pet continuously for many hours and makes the pet weak. This is because it’s not one flea but many fleas at one time sucking blood from the pet. When fleas infection is very severe it may also lead to the death of the animal.
- Along with tapeworm, the dog is at higher risk of being infected by hookworm and heartworms. Therefore, it is suggested that in this festive season find out some time for your pet and inspects it for fleas and ticks.
Even if you notice one flea, start the treatment immediately as even one flea can be dangerous. This will be the unique New Year Gift for your pet.
