Fleas may come from anywhere; even from your garden. They search for warm-blooded animals to feast upon. The most common fleas are Dog Fleas and Cat fleas. While the Cat Fleas may infect cats, dogs and a few other animals but the Dog Fleas will look for dogs and rabbits only.
Dogs are usually targeted at their hind portion of the body while cats are targeted around the neck and head.
Look for larvae, pupae and eggs in your garden and all the places your pet leaves its mark.
Look for flea droppings, which may be red or black, on carpets and sitting areas. If you find small dirt-like particles, collect those with a wet tissue and observe if there are rings of blood.
Get into combating the problem immediately once you recognize a flea infestation. Removing a flea infestation isn’t an easy task. It becomes challenging as the adult fleas are very small in size and can survive without eating for days.
