New Frontline Plus - The Double action flea control

Did you know?

When there are fleas on your pet, there could be hundreds of flea eggs and larvae in your home.

It is now thought that fleas rarely jump from one pet to another, your dog or cat is more likely to pick them up from an infested environment.  The most common places where fleas may be contracted are your garden, the local park, popular dog walking areas, in fact anywhere that another animal that has fleas may be found.  Fleas can also be transmitted by other animals such as rabbits, foxes etc.

These untreated animals leave flea eggs behind everywhere they go.  New fleas will hatch once they sense the warmth, carbon dioxide and vibration that your animal creates.  This stimulates them and they jump on to your pet.

These fleas can make life very miserable for your pet as the can cause:

Intense itching and scratching – which can result in hair loss

Flea Allergy Dermatitis – a very common and unpleasant skin condition caused by an allergy to flea saliva

Tapeworm infestiation

Anemia – in puppies
