Flea & Tick

Fleas and ticks can cause many problems other than itching and scratching. Fleas can cause medical problems such as including flea allergy dermatitis, tapeworms, hair loss due to scratching, and even secondary skin irritations. In large numbers, fleas can cause anemia from blood loss, especially in puppies and kittens which can be fatal if the anemia is severe. Ticks can also transmit serious diseases, including Lyme Disease, Ehrlichiosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. This is why flea and tick control is such an important aspect of dog care.
