Fleas & Ticks

Every dog & cat is likely to become infested with fleas or ticks at some time during it’s life!


The flea season is traditionally from Spring to Autumn, however fleas are frequently now an all year round problem in centrally heated houses, with wall– to– wall carpet- A PERFECT BREEDING GROUND throughout the year in your own home!


In some pets flea bites cause only irritation and mild scratching, but in others which are allergic to the flea saliva- severe flea allergic dermatitis develops.


Prevention is better than Cure.

The flea is transmitted between dogs and cats, so it is important to treat all dogs and cats in the household monthly.

In some cases it is also necessary to treat the pet’s environment directly with a spray to kill the larva and pupae, and prevent eggs hatching.
