Koshka’s Koncern: Fleas

Adult fleas will begin feeding immediately when on the pet.  After taking their first blood meal, fe- males will begin egg production within 20 to 24 hours.  Females can produce 40 to 50 eggs per day. Heavy infestations may lead to iron deficiency anemia and death, particularly in young animals.  In- gestion of infected fleas by children and pets have resulted in the development of tapeworms.

With the weather starting to warm up a bit, the amount of fleas are really getting out of control. I get my flea treatment every month, so make sure your furry friend gets theirs too! My friends here at Raintree Veterinary Center would be happy to assist in getting you the doses that you need. We have prescription and non-prescription monthly flea treatments. All you need for a prescription treatment is a current exam.  Right now you can buy 2 flea treatments and receive one FREE! Thank you for your time, I must get back to my nap……ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
