- Be sure to check your pet’s fur after each walk. Do not forget the areas around the ears, paws and underarm areas.
They like hot, humid spots so check the place where your pet sleeps or spends the most time.
If your pet has fleas you will notice it by its behavior. Scratching will become particularly pronounced
- Give your pet regular brushing. If you see the tiny black crumbs on your pets fur it is possible that fleas are the reason.
Be sure to check your pet’s bed as well as the whole house. Disinfect the areas or use the products that are made for that special purpose.
How to protect your pet
The best way to prevent and protect are necklaces and ampoules that you can buy at pet shops. They release a substance that kills ticks, fleas and similar dangers. Then just brush them out of the fur.
- You can also help them with natural remedies that you need to apply more often.
Essential oils like lavender, oregano, geranium and mint diluted with water keep fleas away because of their smell and substances. Still, many pets do not tolerate these scents, so always keep eye to how they react.
- Garlic is a natural remedy for keeping the insects away. Many say that giving garlic capsules to pets really works.
Do not forget! Dogs can not digest raw garlic! It can even cause erythrocyte cracking, so use it in the form of powder or capsules.
Always follow the behavior of your pet. In animals changes are shown trough decreased appetite, refusal of food and water, severe breathing, vomiting, diarrhea, and other symptoms.
Extremely yellow urine can be a sign of a tick bite.
Even a very calm behavior if you are used to the playfulness of a pet is a sign that something is wrong.
