Stray cats and dogs, rabbits and ferrets can carry flea eggs into your yard. Having a fence doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll keep fleas out.

 

A female flea can start laying eggs within 24 hours of feeding and mating, and has the ability to produce 40-50 eggs per day. That’s hundreds of eggs in a few days! 

 


Even if your cat isn’t scratching she may still have #fleas. Those fleas will lay eggs and then your dog may start to itch!

 

Did you know? Many species of fleas love to feed on humans. Your pets aren’t the only ones at risk if you don’t use preventive treatment.

 


Fleas have four stages of life: egg, larvae, pupae and adult. All stages can live and cause problems on your pet and in your house.

 

Fleas can jump 50-100 times their body length thanks to an elastic pad made out of a protein called resillin. It tenses like a spring and they catapult themselves into the air.


Did you know? Fleas can transmit tapeworms, which means problems externally and internally for your pet. #pethealth

 

Flea eggs fall off an infested pet as it travels around your house. Be sure to treat the rest of your house after you’ve treated your pet.


Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean your #pet is safe from fleas. Fleas can survive in lows as cold as 28F and highs up to 95F.

 

Fleas at all stages of life are able to withstand large shifts in temperature. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean your pet is safe. Fleas can survive in lows as cold as 28F and highs up to 95F. 

 


Your pet isn’t the only thing that will need to be treated for fleas- eggs drop off your pet and can be found around your house. #parasites
