What are fleas?

Fleas are small reddish-brown flat wingless insects with great jumping ability.  They can be seen by the naked eye but are very small.    They feed on blood and when digested it dries up and is referred to as “flea dirt”.  Severe infestations can cause anemia in young and small pets.  If ingested, fleas can cause tapeworm in pets.  You may have an allergic reaction to the fleas.

What are signs fleas?

You will see small black dot insects on your pet’s fur.  Fleas cause pets to scratch, bite, and chew.   Be sure to look for “flea dirt”.  You may see fleas jumping on furniture, window treatments, or carpet.  You may get bitten and have a reaction in the form of an itchy bump.  They usually occur on the lower area of the body (legs and feet).  This will occur as soon as you get bit by the flea.
