You won’t be sorry you took the time for flea prevention!
When it comes to the health and well-being of your pet, there are many things to consider! Here at Plaza Veterinary Hospital, we understand that pet ownership can sometimes be a learning experience, especially for new pet owners. Whether you have a new pet or are a new pet owner, finding the right preventative care for your pets can save you loads of time, money and stress. Flea prevention is just one example of a treatment that is worth pursuing, and we here at Plaza Veterinary Hospital would love to give you the right tools to protect your pet in the Graham, North Carolina area.
Fleas are particularly problematic for many reasons. They spread easily from pet to pet and can even spread to humans with ease. Fleas like fur (and hair), using their strong legs to grasp onto the strands and bite the host for a meal of blood. These tiny bites can cause intense itching and skin problems in pets and humans alike. Fleas are able to live off of their hosts for quite some time and then reattach later on. This means that soft surfaces like carpeting, drapes, bedding, upholstery and toys will all need to be washed and treated if your pet comes back with fleas. You will also need to meticulously comb through their fur with a special comb looking for larvae, lest more fleas hatch and start the process over again.
At our animal hospital, we strongly encourage our pet parents to avoid the time and headache of fleas with simple and effective flea prevention methods. Our flea prevention options allow you to treat your pet to your and their comfort level. For more information, please contact us today.
