Most dog owners agree that a flea infestation is an itchy, annoying situation for both pets and people. But the importance of parasite protection goes beyond stopping an uncomfortable nuisance. A serious flea infestation can lead to life-threatening anemia for pets, and ticks are capable of transmitting dangerous diseases including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and more. Year-round flea and tick medication is the most effective tool in the war against these pesky parasites.
Recognizing Fleas and Ticks
Fleas are tiny parasites that are smaller than a single grain of rice. They move very quickly and might be seen jumping across a pet's skin. The presence of "flea dirt" (flea feces) is also a sign of a flea infestation.
Ticks are much larger than fleas and typically latch on to a dog behind the ears, on the shoulders or on the upper leg areas (although they can latch on anywhere on the body). It's important for owners to check their dog for ticks regularly, especially after spending an extended period of time outdoors.
Prevention and Treatment
Both topical and oral preventatives are available for keeping fleas and ticks away. Owners should speak with their pet's veterinarian regarding which method of flea and tick control is best for their individual animal.
It's also important to keep the environment free of parasites. Pet parents should regularly wash pet bedding and vacuum carpeting and upholstery. Should an infestation occur, powerful products like foggers and yard sprays are available to rid the environment of parasites.
