Fleas on the Increase

Fleas are more commonly seen when the weather is warm, so please check your pets for flea dirts. If you aren't sure what flea dirt looks like - see the photo. The dark brown specks in this cat's fur are flea faeces, and this cat also had live fleas on him. 

Don't forget you need to treat all pets in the household for fleas for at least 3 months to control a flea infestation. 

We have some excellent products to control fleas, including a spot on which lasts for 3 months and is a great choice - please contact the surgery for more details
