Indoor Fleas

Posted by: Rachel Coyer-Stadler, VMD 5 years, 11 months ago

This autumn an increasing number of cases of fleas in indoor only cats have been turning up, which leaves questions as to how? Unfortunately, fleas can come indoors on human pant legs or shoes or come inside on other furred creatures, most commonly the family dog. Most owners keep flea protection on their dog, but if timing is right, fleas can make it inside on the dog before they are killed by a flea product. An unprotected indoor cat then makes a great host for that lucky flea. Fleas, aside from the natural thought of disgust, do carry health concerns* for pets and for people, and this fact makes it very important to protect your pets and restore order from these crazy hopping insects!
