Infestation can be indicated by fleas climbing up drapes and furniture. You may find several tiny, dangling insects in your pet’s hair. Your dog may be more likely to scratch, lick, or bite its hair. Your dog might have a lighter or darker hair colour. These are flea eggs leftover from a blood meal.
Infested dogs may experience hair loss or scabs. Due to blood loss, they may develop pale gums. Due to the possibility of flea infestations, tapeworms are more common in pets with flea problems. Flea-infested pets can also have tapeworms in their feces.
Although flea infestations can be distressing, there are many options. It is a good idea to treat your entire home, including pets. Contact us for expert flea control.
