To indicate an infestation, fleas can climb on drapes and furniture. You may find several tiny, dangling insects on your pet’s hair. Your dog may be more inclined to scratch, lick, or bite its hair. Your dog might also have black or brown hair. These are flea eggs left over from a blood meal.
Infested dogs may experience hair loss or scabs. In addition, due to blood loss, they may develop pale gums. Flea-infested pets may have tapeworms more often, as certain species of tapeworms are hosts for fleas. Flea-infested pets may also have tapeworms in their feces.
Although flea infestations can be distressing, there are many options. First, you should treat all your homes, pets, and yard simultaneously. Then, for expert flea control, contact us.
