Here in the Pacific Northwest, we live in an environment where fleas thrive!
Fleas can cause anemia with heavy infestations. A single female flea can consume up to 15 times her body weight in blood over the several weeks of her adult life. In addition, fleas can carry several diseases, including plague, and act as vectors (hosts) to spread one of the most common tapeworms of the dog and cat, Dipylidium caninum.
Successful flea control is absolutely possible and it has never been easier. With many choices we have today, we can provide you with the safest and most effective flea preventive for your pet’s needs.
