The Best Way to Treat Your Pet's Scratching and Ear Nails

Flea Infestations at The Source - Often, a flea infestation is caused by cats. Perhaps your cat caught fleas in an accident while playing outside or going for a stroll around the block. It does not matter at this time. The first task is to treat the source of your problem as quickly as you can. This will prevent further infestations, as well as any more serious problems that could come along with flea infestation. There are many flea control products available for purchase or that can be made at home.


Before applying any sort of medication or treatment to a pet, you should take the animal to the veterinarian for a check up. A thorough examination should reveal if the animal has an internal infection, an allergy to the medication, flea infestation, or other potential problems. Once these potential problems have been ruled out, you can begin with the actual treatment. There are many different flea control products on the market today that can be bought without a veterinarian's prescription. These flea control products can be used on pets as a topical application, shampoo, or dip.


First, identify the source of your flea infestation. Flea eggs are most likely to be found underneath rugs and on baseboards in houseplants. Freshly washed dishes and upholstered furniture are prime spots for the eggs to hatch. Rodents and rats are another source of eggs in carpeting. They also nest in food, toys, and other household items that are unused or damaged. Although vacuuming can remove flea eggs and other pests from carpeting, it is best to use mild detergent and warm soap to thoroughly clean the carpet.


Flea infestation can also affect dogs and cats. Cat fleas are known for being the most irritating to humans. They can cause severe allergic reactions, skin irritations, and irritation to pets. It is not unusual for dogs or cats to bite themselves during an allergic reaction. This can often result in open sores, or cuts, which will need to then be attended to by a vet. Flea infestation is more common in cats than in dogs, as they spend more time outside than dogs.


Flea infestation can be identified by red bumps or lumps appearing under the fur. These lumps may be flea bites, and they can be identified by looking at the area very carefully. If there are open wounds or cuts, this is another good sign that you should take action quickly. If the spots on your cat and dog look like they're caused by ticks or rashes or birthmarks, it is most likely a flea infestation. You should immediately get it checked.


Flea eggs also come in the form of little creatures called nits, which are black or brownish in color. They look like ticks in their appearance and shape so you'll want to be very careful about any nits on your pet. You may also see them on the pet's hairs. Adult fleas can live up to 2 weeks without a feeding. Depending on the length of your infestation, you may need more time to eliminate them.


In order to treat flea infestation, it is highly recommended that you use an effective flea treatment product that contains only natural ingredients. Flea combs are not recommended as they can cause more harm to pets than good. You should also be wary of flea powders that claim to be fast acting. Flea treatments that work quickly will not be effective because they have been proven safe to kill fleas once the pill is opened.


When it comes to flea infestation, another thing to consider is where your pets are getting their foods. As much as possible, you should eliminate any food source that could be causing an infestation. Fleas can be found in cat foods, dog foods, and rice and corn. You may need to buy air filters for your indoor pets if you keep them indoors. This will reduce the likelihood of flea infestation as pets will spend less time outdoors and more time indoors.
