"Quick jump on that dog!"

Does your pet have fleas?

Fleas are small and wingless insects that feed on your well as you!

Fleas are usually transmitted by jumping from one animal to the next and if your pet constantly scratches, grooms excessively or displays distressed behaviour, they may have fleas.


Even so, despite these classic symptoms some pets may not scratch excessively, therefore further measures for diagnosis are required.


  • Using a flea comb (with very tightly spaced teeth) drag the comb through your pets fur, paying special attention to the back and base of the tail.


  • Carefully examine the comb by emptying any dirt or hair onto a wet piece of white paper.


  • If your pet has fleas, any debris that comes from the flea comb will turn a reddish brown colour.

"Ah Home… Sweet Home"


If your pet is diagnosed with having fleas, we will prescribe you flea treatment for your pet and also flea spray for your home.

Remember, there are lots of places fleas live apart from in your pet’s fur!


Make sure you spray:


  • Pet baskets

  • Carpets

  • Rugs

  • Sofa

  • Beds

  • Stairs

  • Car
