What Are Fleas and Ticks?

Fleas and ticks are external parasites that feed on the blood of animals, including your beloved pets. Fleas are small, wingless insects that can quickly infest your pet and your home. They cause itching and skin irritation and can transmit diseases such as tapeworms and Bartonella.

Ticks are arachnids that attach themselves to your pet’s skin and feed on their blood. They can transmit serious illnesses such as Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Ticks are particularly dangerous because they can go unnoticed for a long time, increasing the risk of disease transmission.

How to Tell If Your Pet Needs Flea and Tick Protection

  • Scratching or Chewing: Excessive scratching, licking, or chewing at the skin could indicate a flea or tick infestation.
  • Visible Parasites: Check your pet’s fur for any signs of fleas (small, fast-moving insects) or ticks (small, dark, round arachnids).
  • Skin Irritation: Redness, swelling, or bumps on the skin, especially around the ears or neck, can be signs of flea bites or tick attachment.
  • Lethargy or Changes in Behavior: If your pet seems unusually tired or shows changes in appetite or behavior, it could be due to a flea or tick-related illness.
