How to Check Your Pet for Fleas

Last updated 1 year ago

Fleas can cause a host of problems for pets, including allergies, tapeworm, and even anemia. Fortunately, these tiny pests can be contained, detected, and treated. In this short video, you will learn how to check your pet for fleas.

If you live in a humid area, check your pet for fleas on a regular basis. If your pet has a light-colored coat, separate the hair on his lower back with your hands and look for debris that resembles pepper. Use a comb to look for this flea dirt if your pet has thick or dark fur.

If your pet has fleas, speak with a trusted Richardson veterinarian at The Vet House. Call us today at (972) 690-8741 for tips on how to detect and treat your pet’s fleas.
