Fleas are capable of spreading parasites and infectious diseases to their hosts. If you are interested in learning about how fleas evolve from eggs to adults, check out this video.
There are four stages in the flea’s life cycle, each of which is discussed in this video. Many fleas never reach the final stage of adulthood, but this does not stop them from causing dermatitis and other irritating parasite problems for your pet.
If your pet has fleas, it is imperative that you make a visit to her veterinarian. To schedule an appointment with an experienced animal doctor, call Hudson Veterinary Hospital at (914) 762-0063. Early detection and treatment of flea-borne diseases can help ensure your pet makes a full recovery.
