Protecting Your Pet Against Flea Infections

By Refadoc, Posted on : Monday, 09 March 2015 - 11:23 am IST

When your pet plays outside during the day, the chances are immense for the fleas to hop onto his skin and coat and to hitch a ride right into your home. Once your pet carries the fleas into your home that is when the real trouble begins. The handful of fleas on his coat tends to start biting, causing him pain and discomfort. These fleas then tend to multiply quickly and rapidly becoming hundreds of eggs within a period of a couple of days.

Once the fleas start biting, the female flea starts laying eggs, up to 50 per day. When your pet is moving around or running in your home, he becomes a carrier for their flea eggs, which are shed all over your floor, carpets, furniture as well as your bed. Over a fortnight, the eggs hatch and develop into new adult fleas which rein fest your home and your pet, beginning a new cycle.

Prevention is the best key to prevent your pet against flea infestation. Fortunately, prevention has been now made easier than ever. To help protect your pet from flea infestation, make sure that you use topical medications all over the year. Treat your pets inside your home and make sure that you pet avoids all contact with other pets which may have been infested with the fleas.

If you pet is already suffering from fleas, make sure that you take him to the vet as soon as possible and talk to your vet about the different treatment options which are available for him.

Also, ask your vet regarding the treatment options which are available all over the year in order to protect your pet from fleas and infestation.
