Nowadays, with the majority of houses having central heating, there is an all year round flea problem.
A number of different control measures are available and the nursing staff will advise you which control would best suit your household. Some of these measures are listed below:
Given in food once a month to dogs and cats or by injection to cats every 6 months Program sterilises any fleas which might bite and so prevents any build up of fleas.
Frontline works in a similar way to Advantage, but has the benefit of also being effective against lice and ticks. This product is available as a drop-on or as a spray.
House hold sprays can be used to prevent flea eggs developing and hatching out in the house and can be used alongside other products. Remember they can be toxic to fish and cagebirds so read the instructions for use carefully.
