Flea Prevention and Control

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. Even finding one flea is indicative that you have a flea infestation. Pets get tapeworms from ingesting fleas. So if you have fleas then you have tapeworms  too!
