Fleas are possibly your dog and cat’s biggest pest!
There is a large variation in just how big a pest they are on individual dogs and cats. Generally any dog or cat that isn’t being treated with ﬂea control will have an occasional ﬂea. Some pets tolerate a few fleas without a problem and other pets ﬁnd them more irritating.
Some pets are also allergic to the ﬂeas and so have major skin problems that need closer attention.
If you’re not using regular flea control in your pets then often the ﬂea population explodes. Then suddenly you ﬁnd that there are many ﬂeas around and you have to play catch up trying to control them.
The main ﬂea that we see on our pets is in fact the cat ﬂea which will live on both dogs and cats.
