In most areas of the United States, the battle with fleas
is year round, and is especially bothersome in the late summer
and early fall. As the temperatures drop, fleas seek a warm body
on which to feed. That warm body is likely your pet!
Once on your pet, fleas breed quickly in the warmth of your home.
The life cycle of a flea, may take as little as 2-3 weeks to complete,
which can quickly result in a flea population explosion if you
don't take preventative measures and quickly treat your pet at
the first sign of fleas.
What to Look for...
If your dog is constantly scratching, odds are good that they
may have fleas. The common flea is a tiny, dark, quick moving
insect with a shiny hard body. Even easier to spot is “flea
dirt” or feces. It looks like specks of pepper and an indicator
that your pet has fleas. Check your pet regularly by rolling them
over and thoroughly searching through the hair on their belly,
inner thighs and near the base of the tail.
What’s the Big Deal?
Any pet with fleas needs immediate treatment. Not only are fleas
a nuisance, but a flea infestation can also pose serious health
risks. Fleas can carry tapeworm larvae from one infected animal
to another. Pets can also be allergic to flea bites. The saliva
that is left of a pet after the flea feeds, contains enzymes that
causes a reaction in some pets. The reaction looks like red, sore,
itchy skin and can cause hair loss.
Treatment of Fleas
Treatment for a pet infested with fleas is a three part process.
To be successful, you must treat the pet, your home and yard.
It is also important to treat all pets in the household, not just
the pet with fleas.
• Pet: Yappie Cuttery recommends starting
flea treatment with a professional grooming, including a Capstar pill. After treatment, you may also want to put a flea
collar on your pet. Please notify your groomer if your pet is
on oral flea protection. We also recommend applying a monthly
flea preventative to manage and prevent further flea infestations.
• Car: While your pet is being groomed,
it’s recommended that you spray the car interior with a
flea killing insecticide.
• Home: Wash all pet bedding and sprinkle
flea powder on clean bedding. Thoroughly vacuum the house and
put a teaspoon of flea powder in new vacuum bags to kill eggs.
“Bomb” your house with a fogger or use a spray insecticide
and reapply within 2 weeks of initial treatment.
• Yard: You can also treat your yard with
a flea control product as found in many garden centers.
Yappie Cuttery offers a variety of grooming services to address
and prevent flea infestation. We
perform dips and carry an assortment of pet flea and tick control
products, flea collars, ex-o-spot treatments, flea and tick sprays,
yard sprays, home sprays and flea bombs.
If you suspect that your pet may have fleas, but your not sure,
give us a call or stop by and we’ll have a certified groomer
check your pet for fleas. We’ll even show you how to regularly
check your pet to prevent future infestations.
