Fleas are parasites which commonly cause severe skin allergies and also act as intermediate host for flea tapeworm. Fleas can be detected easily through inspection by combing your pets fur for "flea - dirt" which is actually dried blood excreted by the blood sucking flea. There are numerous ways of treating and preventing flea infestation such as " spot - on" products, growth regulators, sprays and collars . It is important to treat both the pet and the environment.
Fleas are best controlled with regular all year round application of topical preparations such as monthly Advantage, Advantix or Frontline.
Rabbits can have monthly kitten advantage applied (off - label). DO NOT USE FRONTLINE ON RABBITS.
