Dangers of Fleas and Ticks

Fleas and ticks are pesky parasites that can make your pet’s life a nightmare. They can make your own life pretty miserable, too! They feed on the blood of mammals and cause a wide range of problems. For starters, their bites are extremely itchy and often cause pets to suffer from hair loss due to excessive scratching and skin lesions from overgrooming. Fleas can also carry tapeworm and pass them along to your dog, cat, or even you. And in cases of severe infestations, fleas can cause anemia.

Ticks are even more dangerous. They carry a wide range of potentially deadly diseases, including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and many, many others.
