Flea bites on humans constitute a problem which many people tend to ignore either out of embarrassment or due to the belief that they are not a serious condition.
But, these little insects carry a lot of diseases, and through their bite, the viruses can get into your bloodstream and cause an infection.
Most often, flea bites on humans appear under the form of itchy spots that form over the surface of the body, predominantly in the area of the legs.
If you notice such spots and think you may have been bitten by fleas, do not rush into thinking that this is a cause of embarrassment, since fleas are attracted to unclean environments. Actually, most often, fleas are transmitted to humans by their pets.
If you notice that your dog has lost its appetite and seems to feel lethargic, the chances are it is also infested with dog worms, internal parasites that affect our pets. Is your dog constantly scratching its ears? Ear mites in dogs are also a rather common problem. This infection can cause serious damage to your dog’s inner ear.
Dogs do have the instinct to fight against parasites, but their natural methods are usually inefficient. In fact, as the dog scratches, external parasites may fall off its fur, and unto your carpet. Once you have fleas in house, it is only a question of time until you will start noticing flea bites on humans as well.
The best thing you can do is get a professional treatment for your dog. Also, calling a pest control company for flea removal and elimination of dog fleas in your home is a great idea.
Ask your veterinarian which one is the most suitable for your dog, according to its breed, weight, and age. Once your dog is treated, those annoying flea bites on humans will also disappear.
As for the internal parasites, one of the most efficient treatments available is usually prescribed by the vet. Any treatment for your dog has to work — as this is one of the basic steps in preventing illness caused by worms and fleas that took refuge in your pet.
If you fear that your budget may not permit you such a complex treatment, take into consideration the fact that there are a lot of pet meds for less money you can choose from. Pet medication discounts are easy to find, just ask your veterinarian or browse the Internet for some great offers.
Another method to fight against parasites is prevention. Buy a series of dog grooming supplies, such as brushes, clippers, and shampoos and make sure that you keep your dog clean, and, consequently your home’s environment more hygienic. Brush the fur of your dog on a daily basis and wash it as often as it is recommended. You will notice that with such a routine, flea bites on humans or even on dogs will no longer be a problem.
