Pet pests present unique dangers to both pets and people as they are transferable easily, hard to spot and bearers of different ailments. While fleas are principally an itchy inconvenience, they can also cause dermatitis, transport tapeworms and in unusual cases, spread bubonic plague in the event that they have fed on an infected rat. Ticks are not as visible as fleas but rather they are known to transmit severe diseases, for example, Lyme and cause “tick paralysis”.
House owners must carefully check pets’ fur for ticks and fleas after they have been out in the yard or at the park as these pests can surely invade homes. One of the least demanding approaches to complete a bug check is by brushing the pet’s fur and utilizing your hand to smooth fur along the body.
