There are more than 2,200 flea species recognized worldwide. Fleas can wreak havoc on your beloved pet/s. They are an itchy nuisance and can transmit diseases and cause skin allergies and anemia. Fleas cause severe irritations in both animals and humans. They also transmit a wide variety of diseases, including tapeworm infections (read about tapeworms here) and typhus like rickettsiae (read more here). Flea prevention is paramount for your pet’s health. It’s relatively inexpensive.
At Vet Home Express, August is our flea prevention month. To have Dr. Cecilia treat your pet for flea allergies or to order flea prevention treatments please call 954-243-0269.

Many parasites can infect your pet’s digestive system. The two most common ones are:
Pets can become infected by ingesting the larvae in the environment (usually passed in the feces of an infected animal or in the milk from a nursing mom), by eating infected rodents, or by larval penetration of the skin. Infection is more common in kittens and puppies. The worms typically live in the small intestines.
Most pets don’t show signs. However, anemia does occasionally occur and is the result of bloodsucking by the worms in the small intestines. Feces may become loose.
Other tell tale signs:
Adult tapeworms are segmented worms found in the intestines. Tapeworms are usually acquired from ingesting fleas – for instance when an animal bites his itchy skin and bites a flea. Fecals are needed for diagnosis (please contact Dr. Cecilia to schedule a fecal exam in the comfort of your own home).
Tell tale signs include:
Deworming treatment plans can help to control hookworm and tapeworm infections. Control of tapeworms requires both treatment and prevention. Flea control is critical for tapeworm control, even for indoor cats! It will be my pleasure to provide you with an effective preventative long-term treatment plan.
