Vets Warn Pet Owners about Fleas

Thursday, June 18, 2015

It is that time of year again when our pets like to spend as much time outdoors as we do. Our cats enjoy exploring and hunting while our dogs are content to simply be at our side as we walk, ride, and bike or lay gazing up at the clouds. That means it is also the time of year when pet owners have to be especially vigilant insofar as fleas are concerned.

A group of veterinarians organised as Vets4Pets is urging dog and cat owners to make sure their animals are protected against fleas this summer. They say too many owners are not doing so. According to their numbers, just 10% of dog owners and 20% of cat owners provide their pets with monthly flea treatments. That leaves about 14 million animals unprotected.

Making matters worse is the fact that once a flea infestation is present, it can be very difficult to eradicate. Fleas brought into the home can get into bedding, clothing, carpets, and just about any place the insects find a comfortable hiding spot. In addition to providing flea treatments for your cat or dog, we hope you will keep the Pest Control Berkshire phone number handy.

Flea problems

We Treat Fleas

Pest Control Berkshire handles a long list of household pests, including fleas. For more than 20 years, we have served customers within a 25-mile radius of our Newbury office. If you suspect your cat or dog might have a flea problem, we encourage you not to ignore it; doing so could cause even greater problems you are not prepared to deal with.

When you do call us for flea control, we will provide effective treatment with the utmost discretion. Our technicians arrive in unmarked vehicles and wearing plain uniforms. Neither your neighbours nor anyone else needs to know you are dealing with a flea problem unless you choose to tell them. By the time we complete our work, your home will be free of fleas.

Please understand that we will make recommendations as to how you can avoid future infestations. One of those recommendations will be to heed the advice of Vets4Pets: provide your cats and dogs with the treatment they need to keep fleas away year-round. You do not necessarily need to pay for a visit to the veterinarian's office; there are very effective products you can buy over-the-counter and apply yourself. Remember, prevention is always the best defence.
