Ailment Associated with Product
Heartworms or Dirofilaria immitits, are a species of roundworms classified in a group called nematodes. Heartworms are a parasite, which means they need a viable host to thrive, living out there lives feeding and reproducing in the organs of warm blooded mammals. Heartworms are actually transmitted to a pet through the bite of a mosquito. The flora of the heartworm lives within the mosquito until said mosquito takes his blood meal, injecting the roundworm in the process. These heartworms mature, reproduce, and thrive in the hearts of our pets. A pet with heartworm disease will become intolerant to exercise, cough, and may display drowsiness. In severe cases of this disease a pet may pass or collapse due to inadequate blood flow.
Two common fleas infest our pets; the cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis) and the dog flea (Ctenocephalides canis). Fleas live both indoors and out, following the pet and infecting said pet at different stages of life. There are four stages in a flea’s life: egg, larva or caterpillar, cocoon, and adult. The larvae grow and form a cocoon around them which is highly resistant to the environment, making them difficult to terminate. This larva can survive quite a long time in their cocoons and only hatch with the presence of carbon dioxide is present, which is the exhalant gas, produced from the body. Fleas attach themselves to pets in order to consume their blood. As these tiny pests take their blood meals, the skin inflames causing pets to itch and scratch excessively. Pet owners may not be able to view the fleas themselves but will be able to view a product known as flea dander. Flea dander appears as black dirt within the pet’s hair, this so called dirt is in fact digested blood defecated by the flea.
