Flea control – On the more serious side

On the more serious side:

Fleas feeding on your dog can cause several problems: itching and scratching at the flea bite. However, in most dogs the itching is mild and temporary. But some dogs become allergic to flea saliva and develop severe itching, hair loss, and skin damage from scratching and biting at the site. If left untreated a skin infection can develop.

Tapeworm infestation – fleas are an essential part of the tapeworm’s life cycle – the dog is infested with tapeworms when it swallows a flea that contains immature tapeworm stages.

Anemia which is the loss of red blood cells can occur with severe flea infestations, and usually is seen in young or sick animals.
