Fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes pose a significant threat to your canine companion's well-being. In this comprehensive guide, we provide invaluable tips on freeing your dog from fleas and restoring their quality of life.
Understanding the Enemy: What Are Fleas?
Pulgas, or fleas, are tiny ectoparasites that predominantly feed on blood in their adult phase. Contrary to common belief, fleas do not have wings but are adept jumpers. They can transmit the Dipylidium caninum worm to dogs, causing issues such as anemia, diarrhea, and even fatality.
Why Conventional Home Remedies Are Risky
Attempting to eradicate fleas with homemade poisons can be hazardous. Many substances can harm your pet's skin, exacerbating existing irritations. Rather than opting for potentially harmful DIY solutions, a more effective and safer approach is recommended.
