Why Fleas Are Dangerous For Pets?


Your pets like to jump up and down, to and fro from one place to another. The outside area is their favourite playground where they are free to do anything they like. And it is the same place from where all harmful fleas crawl on your pets and suck their blood. These creepy little bugs cause problems for your pets and not only them, but they can bite you and cause allergic reactions in your body as well like itching, etc.

Before you act on these creepy-crawly worms, you need to know what they are and how they are dangerous for your pet animals. In this regard, Ambassador Animal Hospital helps you to understand them better and further assist you on how to get rid of them.

What are Fleas?

Fleas are tiny irritating wingless insects that survive on the body of warm-blooded hosts like your pets, other animals and even you, by ingesting the blood and replicate very quickly. Their bites are itchy and sometimes painful for your pets and getting rid of them is quite hard. Though small in size, these vermin can jump up to 3.9 feet which is many times their size. Due to this ability, they easily move from one host to another and in this way, flea infestations spread.

Why are they dangerous?

Fleas’ bites cause allergic reactions on your pets bodies, the most common is Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) that is caused by Flea Saliva. These bugs cause constant itching and irritation to your pets, thus forming scabs on pet’s body which can get infected. A second problem that is caused by fleas is tapeworms which are parasites that passed to your pet when they ingest the flea. Other problems like cat scratch fever, typhus and bubonic plague, anaemia, etc can also occur.
