A regular flea and worming routine is an essential part of keeping your pet healthy and protected against infestations.
Fleas and ticks are not only a nuisance for you and your pet, but they also carry some serious health risks as well. Ticks can carry Lyme disease! If your pet is bitten by a tick, and it is not safely removed, they could pass on this horrible disease to your pet!
The symptoms of Lyme disease include things such as breathing difficulties, joint pain and swelling, nerve damage and crippling arthritis, to name a few!
If you notice one on your pet, the best way to remove a tick is with a proper Removal Tool. Simply place the device close to the skin, twist and pull to remove the insect from your pet's body. NEVER use tweezers and try to pinch them off! If you can't safely remove it, take your animal to see your vet as soon as possible.
If you are want to prevent your pet from catching fleas, you need to stick to a regular routine of applying a regular treatment. This can easily be done by either spot-on or special collars. We provide a range of different options so you can make the best possible choice based on your pet's lifestyle and needs.
But what should you do if you notice a flea on your pet?
Did You Know? 95% of all fleas in a household are in the carpets and on furniture with only 5% on your cat or dog.
When it comes to fleas, the key here is to break the cycle!
We hear it all the time from customers, "this product no longer works" - All the products that we sell are UK licensed products. They are clinically tested and there is no evidence to support anecdotal claims about spot-on treatments now being ineffective. In most cases, fleas re-appearing is part of a much bigger issue. So let's talk about the flea lifecycle!
You really need to understand what the flea lifecycle is, before you can start to treat your pet and your home. It is no longer a case of seeing a flea on your animal, combing it off and then using a spot on.
What if they flea has already laid its eggs? They can sit dormant for months before the time is right to hatch. Come the Autumn when your central heating goes back on, these eggs are then warmed and ready to hatch. Before you know it, your house could have a fleas infested house!
Fleas like to lay their eggs in long carpets and in skirting boards! To tackle the carpet, make use of your vacuum cleaner on a regular basis! Empty after every use, as the last thing you want is the eggs to hatch inside your hoover!
When it comes to the skirting boards, the best way to kill off any unwanted parasites is by using a household flea spray. The flea spray is the best option for pest control around the house. Always read the manufacturer instructions carefully though to ensure you do not damage any soft furnishings.
And finally, the most important thing to remember is that irradiating a flea infestation is a long process and will require a lot of patience and determination. It is not an overnight fix, but if you stay on top of it and you keep repeating the cleaning steps and treating your animal monthly, you should be rid of fleas in no time!
While the focus of this piece has been on the outside of your pet, it is just as important to focus on the inside too!
If you are fleaing your pet on a regular basis then you should also be worming them as well! As a rough guide, and depending on the product, you should be fleaing your animal monthly and worming them every three months.
Protecting your pet from worms and other intestinal parasites is essential! Parasites can cause a whole range of problems for your animal, with some even having fatal consequences.
