Fleas are very undesirable parasites which feed off our domestic pets They are very common and if you don’t do something about them they will infest you pet and your home.
For the long-term health and wellbeing of your pet and your family, it is essential that you routinely use proven, preventative treatments against the most common parasites throughout your pet’s life. Remember that prevention is much easier and cost effective than cure.
Fleas don’t just live on your animals, they breed in carpets and furniture and easily take over the home. That’s why at MetroVet we will give you advise on the best products to use and how to use them to minimise the problem. We have a number of very good products to suit different pets and owners.
Although fleas are small, they can make your pet miserable. Once on your pet, fleas can bite every 5 minutes leaving your cat or dog itchy and uncomfortable. You only need to bring one flea inside your home to start an infestation. One female flea can produce enough eggs to quickly escalate the problem in your home.
To achieve optimal flea control, preventive treatment should be provided throughout the year. If you are unfortunate enough to get a flea infestation on your pet and in your home we are always available to give thorough advice on how to eliminate the problem effectively and safely.
Fleas, worms and other parasites can be caught at parks local to MetroVet.
Parks are a breeding ground for parasites, especially in the warmer months from April to October. As a pet owner, you do not want to deprive your beloved pet of the chance to make friends, and you certainly do not want to limit the opportunity to be outside. But, if it seems like all the other pets are itching, scratching and playing with slugs and other parasite carriers, what is a pet owner to do?
