Fleas can cause problems for pets ranging from minor to life-threatening. Not only can these parasites cause severe itching, irritation, and allergies, but they can also transmit tapeworms and diseases. Fleas can infest dogs, cats, ferrets, mice, and rats. And fleas don’t just stay on pets; they can bite people, too.
Fleas on your pet means fleas in your home. Understanding the flea life cycle and methods for controlling and eliminating fleas on your pet and in your home can be difficult and frustrating. Prevention is always easier than treatment! We will gladly assist you in this process. Carriage Crossing Animal Hospital can provide you with safe, effective flea prevention and if necessary, flea treatment. If you have further questions, or would like to come in and discuss your pet’s flea control needs at our Waterloo animal hospital location, please call 519-275-1777 today!
