Understanding Flea and Tick Infestations

Fleas and ticks are not just pesky; they can transmit diseases and cause considerable discomfort for your beloved pet. These tiny parasites can lead to skin irritation, allergic reactions, anemia, and in severe cases, transmit diseases like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Recognizing the signs of an infestation is crucial for early intervention and effective treatment. Watch out for symptoms such as excessive scratching, red or irritated skin, hair loss, and visible parasites on your pet’s fur.
