Single Flea on Pets Can Cause Multiple Issues


Hialeah Gardens, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/01/2014 -- Flea infestation all begins with one single flea. One single female flea can lay up to 50 eggs in a single day, turning that one tiny flea into a huge problem. Comfortis (spinosad) starts killing fleas before they lay eggs and provides a full month of flea protection to help prevent future flea infestations. Comforts’ great tasting tablets are easy to administer and the effects of Comfortis begins to work within 30 minutes. Comfortis works so well, veterinarians have recommended Comfortis as the number one flea terminator on the market.

Ailment Associated with Product:
The flea has four stages in order to complete its life cycle; egg, larva, cocoon, and adult. This life cycle is continuous as with each warming season, another generation of fleas enters the world. The Flea is a parasitic organism, meaning they must rely on another creature for survival. These parasites prey on canines ranging from infants to adults in order to consume their blood meal. Flea infestation becomes a medical condition as one flea quickly becomes thousands.

Fleas can cause a number of health problems to a canine. Aliments in which fleas can cause include; allergy induced dermatitis, anemia, and skin lesions. Allergy induced dermatitis is a skin allergy caused by the saliva of a flea. Flea allergy dermatitis can be caused by a single flea as the pet will break out in hives or small pyritic lesions. Skin lesions are defined as infectious sores on the skin. Fleas’ bites cause pets to scratch at themselves vigorously. This violent scratching often opens the skin, allowing bacteria to enter the wound and cause infection.

Anemia is defined as a condition in which the individual contains a lower population of blood cells than what is necessary for body functions. Female fleas consume approximatly13.6 micro liters (+/- 2.7 micro liters) of blood per day, which was equivalent to 15.15 times their body weight. If a dog is heavily contaminated with fleas, blood levels decrease and cause anemia. A pet with anemia will display signs such as; pale mucus membranes, lack of energy, decrease in appetite or thirst, and in extreme cases death.
