With house cats or dogs, come a very nasty pest that many people are unaware of until there is a infestation inside of their home. Fleas are a big concern inside of towns like Wilmington. Because there are so many house pets, there are also going to be so many fleas.
Homeowners often miss fleas on their pets until they have affected their bodies personally. In fact, most homeowners do not realize that their pets have fleas until the people inside of the home start breaking out in rashes that resemble small bites.
There are some things that you can do to prevent your pets from getting fleas and bringing them inside your home. First of all, you should always treat your pets for fleas. If you pet starts scratching more often than you are used to or if they are biting at their skin there is a good chance that they may have fleas living inside of their fur.
If you feel comfortable looking into the situation on your own, you can take a fine toothed comb and check your pet’s skin for fleas. If you happen to see tiny flecks on their skin it is likely that they are in fact fleas living on their skin. If the number of fleas is high, we would encourage you to take your pet to the vet to have the fleas addressed and removed from your pet away from your home. If you try and pick the fleas out of your pets hair in your home you risk the chance of the fleas getting away and moving to other locations inside of your home. Taking your pet to vet clinic is the best way to remove fleas from your animal’s skin and keep them from staying inside of your home.
Fleas happen and it is nothing to be embarrassed about. However, if you suspect that your pet may have fleas it is vital that you act quickly so the fleas do not relocate to your couch and bed and bite your body.
