Fleas and ticks never stop working. These little creatures are the carriers of disease and the plague.
Fleas and ticks are able to transmit a number of diseases by carrying viruses such as chikungunya, Yellowstone, and dengue fever.
They also carry bacteria such as Lyme disease, the plague, etc.. These bugs also carry parasites such as malaria and other nasty illnesses.
Fleas, ticks, and others never stop working. They are tireless about spreading disease which even created the black plague that wiped out most of the people in Europe.
These are nasty parasites that affect humans and pets.
Many pet owners dismiss fleas by just saying – “it's that time of year.” They don't realize that flea infestation is more than an annoyance.
Once a flea finds a host, usually, your pet or it could be you. Fleas are not choosy about who they decide to eat (I mean where they suck their blood.)
When we think about bloodsucking insects we don't usually think about fleas, but they do feed on our pets and us.
When I was a little kid, I always slept with dogs.
Once my mother saw my stomach covered with little red marks. She rushed me to the doctor and he determined that little red marks were flea bites.
When we got home everybody got a flea bath. In fact, everything in the entire house had to be treated for fleas.
But I digress.
Usually, when we think of dangerous insect bites we attribute those ticks. Ticks are responsible for Lyme disease in humans as well as pets.
There are five indications that you and your pet are under fleas and ticks attack.
1. Scratching, Licking, and Biting
2. Unusual red patches of skin
3. Hair loss
4. Pale Gums
5. Flea dirt (flea poop)
If you have any one or a combination of those indicators there's a good possibility there is a ninja flea attack going on at your house.
When I was a kid I wasn't scratching, licking or biting myself or others. I had unusual red patches on my skin. I didn't lose my hair and my gums were pale. I took a bath regularly so I had no clue that I have may have been covered in flea poop – Yuck.
Luckily today, we don't have to wear flea collars.
Now we can give our pets Oral flea and tick medication to stop the ninja attacks before they get started. Oral medications our first line of defense to protect our pets from unnecessary suffering.
Nobody wants to suffer and nobody wants to have little crawly bugs all over them drinking their blood. That's disgusting.
There are several top name brands that produce Oral flea and tick medication. Compare prices and find out who is offering you the best service and the best price. You owe it to you and your pet – find the right product, at the right price, from someone you can trust.
Who knows you may be saving the world from the next plague. 😉
