Fleas and ticks are parasites that can cause a lot of trouble for your cat or dog.
Where a flea infestation mainly causes itching, the danger of a tick bite lies in the transmission of diseases. Lyme is the best known of these. Fortunately, you can protect your pet preventively against fleas and ticks.
Fleas in cats and dogs
Your dog or cat will encounter fleas through a conspecific, in its environment and even through you! These parasites need an animal or human host to survive. They bite into the skin to suck up blood. In addition, they leave a little saliva behind, which causes an allergic reaction that is mainly characterized by itching. Unfortunately, the flea itself can be an intermediate host for the worm, another harmful pet parasite. With a bit of bad luck, fleas can also transfer worm infestation to your dog or cat.
The tick bite
Ticks know how to detect your dog or cat outside. And it is a myth that these parasites only live in forests. Your pet may also encounter them in a park, dune area and even in your own garden. Once a tick has bitten itself, it sucks itself full of blood. The parasite will therefore increase in size the longer it is on your dog or cat. Ticks are notorious transmitters of diseases that are also dangerous to humans, such as Lyme disease.
You naturally want to prevent the nasty complaints and risks that fleas and ticks bring. Therefore, protect your four-legged friend against flea infestation and tick bites. You do this by periodically giving him an anti-flea and tick remedy. That way you also protect yourself and other family members. Because once a flea or tick is "done" with your pet, it simply looks for another host, depending on its stage of life. And humans are among his favorites too!
Does my cat or dog have fleas?
Regularly comb your pet's coat with a flea comb. The black dots that can be in it are the excrement of fleas. Do you notice that your dog or cat is biting or scratching a lot? That is a sign of itching. And while there are many causes of this symptom, it is quite possible that fleas are the culprit. Scratching and biting often causes bald spots and wounds. And do you discover one flea? Then assume that there are at least a hundred in your house. These parasites multiply very quickly and do not only live on your four-legged friend. In addition to long-term treatment of your animal, you will therefore also have to thoroughly disinfect your home. Including furniture and textiles. And that time and time again because this parasite is very persistent.
Help… a tick bite!
Check your four-legged friend's coat and skin regularly for ticks. You prefer to do this every time your dog or cat has been outside. If a tick has just bitten, it still looks like a small black pinhead. It is important to remove it as soon as possible. For this it is best to use a tick tweezer or card, with which you pull it straight out of your pet in one go. Make sure you dispose of the tick outside in a closed waste container, wrapped with aluminum foil. This prevents him from moving towards a new host.
