Fleas and Canberra Pets
As the weather warms up and the days get longer, it won’t only be us who will be celebrating! The cheeky flea will be out and about and even though they can cause problems all year round, it is during spring and summer that we see them come out in force.
Flea eggs like to sit dormant through the winter months and it only takes a few warm and sunny days for them to start celebrating and begin hatching.
It’s always best to be on the front foot when is comes to prevention. The aim is to kill the eggs before they hatch and you can do this by making sure your pet is up to date with top quality flea control. Ask us for the best recommendation as not all flea products are effective at treating the entire life cycle, and some might even be a waste of your money.
It only takes one flea bite for your pet to start feeling pretty itchy and uncomfortable. If the itch gets out of control, the trauma caused by scratching can lead to skin infections and the need for antibiotics.
When it comes to fleas, prevention is the key! So beat the flea this spring and make sure your pet (and all pets in the household) are protected.
