Flea and Tick

Fleas and ticks are bloodsucking parasites adept at inviting themselves into your home. Dogs and cats are the ideal hosts for these parasites. A female flea can lay up to 2,000 eggs in her lifetime. Many people overlook the serious health problems that fleas and ticks can transmit to pets and humans.

Fleas and ticks can cause several serious health problems. Ticks can transmit Lyme Disease, a serious condition that can infect people too. Fleas can cause Flea Allergy Dermatitis, a type of allergy that causes excessive itching, scabs, sores and hair loss. Fleas can also carry Tape Worms, which can infect dogs, cats and humans after ingesting just one flea. The veterinarians at Sitara Animal Hospital will tailor a flea and tick preventative program that is appropriate for your pet’s individual lifestyle and travel plans.
