Being apart of SAVetshops, a group of Vetshops that have been at the forefront of the Veterinary Retail industry since 2002, we are familiar with all the different questions customers have with regards to the well-being of their pets, and some the most frequent are definitely about Skin issues. Did you know that Flea Allergy Dermatitis is the most common cause of itching and scratching in dogs? A dog bitten by a single Flea can have an allergic reaction that can last for up to two weeks after the fleabite. Most owners will never even see the first 2-3 fleas that are on your pet, so even though you might not see fleas that doesn’t mean they aren’t there.
It is now Spring, and there is most likely going to be an influx of new fleas happening all over the place, we all need to keep up to date with our Flea Treatments and ensure that they don’t continue to procreate in the environments we call home and cause us, and in large part our pets, pain and discomfort. Let’s create a movement where we banish these parasites and fight back. You know where we are, pop in and let us help you fight back! #fleasmustfall
