Fleas on dogs and cats

There are several characteristics that indicate flea infestation. If your dog or cat suffers from fleas, it will scratch its fur much more than usual. As a result, the cat or dog will also suffer more hair loss. Sometimes an infected pet will also have bald patches and scabs due to frequent scratching/biting. To check if your pet has fleas, it is best to use a flea comb for dogs or a flea comb for cats. By the way, did you know that 95% of the flea population is in the environment and only 5% of fleas are actually present on the animal? To treat the environment, various flea sprays for dogs or flea sprays for cats are also available.

Flea treatments

There are several ways to protect your dog or cat from fleas. Below are the methods to protect your pet:

  • Spot-on: The contents of the pipette are distributed between the shoulder blades of your dog or cat. The liquid is applied between the hairs and on the intact skin. At Vetsend, you will find pipettes from Frontline, The Pet Doctor and Beaphar, among others.
  • Flea collar: Vetsend offers flea collars from Knock Off, Beaphar and The Pet Doctor. Flea collars continuously release a low dose of active substances.
  • Coat spray: A spray is especially suitable for animals that cannot yet be treated with a pipette. Think of puppies and kittens. At Vetsend you will find a number of fine sprays, such as the Effipro spray.
  • Shampoos: For dogs, there are also a number of fine flea shampoos available. These can be used as complementary flea control. Note that these shampoos are only effective for a short time. This makes them suitable only as supplementary protection.
  • Tablets: For both dogs and cats, there are also tablets that can protect your pet against fleas and ticks. For dogs, for example, there are FRONTPRO Chewable tablets.

Ticks on dogs and cats

Ticks can cause a lot of inconvenience and all kinds of health problems. A tick can carry diseases that can be transmitted to your animal. The best-known diseases are Lyme disease, Anaplasma, Babesia and Ehrlichia. Good prevention and quick action in case of problems is therefore essential for an animal’s health. It is therefore important to regularly check your animal for the presence of ticks. Especially after a nice walk in the woods, it is important to check your animal. There are several products available against ticks. Many are combination products that work against both ticks and fleas. With many products, however, ticks will have to bite before they are killed.

Removing ticks

Check your pet daily for ticks, especially after a walk in the woods. It is important to remove the tick within 24 hours of it biting, before disease transmission can take place. Removing a tick can be done using a tick card or tick forceps. At Vetsend, you will find several tick removal tools. You have to make sure you pick up the tick as close to the skin as possible. Then you can carefully remove the tick. Try not to crush the body of the tick.
