Why should I worry about fleas and ticks?
Fleas are parasitic wingless insects that feed off their host’s blood to survive. They can cause discomfort and irritation in dogs, causing anemia in severe infestations. Some dogs may be allergic to flea saliva, which can cause flea allergy dermatitis.
If your dog has fleas, the insects and their eggs may also be found in carpets, clothes and bedding in your house, threatening its human inhabitants, too.
As well as irritating your and your pet’s skin, fleas can transmit a number of diseases, including murine typhus. It causes fever, headaches, a rash and nausea in humans.
Ticks can present a serious threat to your dog’s health, attaching themselves to your dog and sucking their blood. Three types of ticks can be found in Australia: paralysis ticks, brown dog ticks and bush ticks.
Of these, the paralysis tick is the most dangerous for your dog. If it bites your dog, a toxin in its saliva affects your dog’s nervous system, causing vomiting, coughing and problems breathing.
