These insects can cause a lot of irritation to the skin and in heavy infestations can be debilitating to the host. We would suggest regular treatment with a spot on to control infestations. We can offer Frontline Combo, Advocate and Stronghold for external parasite control.
Please discuss with the vet which is most suitable for your pet.
In the house flea eggs and larvae can survive in carpet edges for years, so it is important to control any infestations early. Depending on the species of flea, around 25 egg a day can be laid, these take around 12 days to mature. In 12 days the adult can have laid 300 eggs, each of which can lay 25 eggs a day on hatching. Within a couple of weeks one flea brought in could be responsible for 7,500 eggs!
