If you have a pet, you have probably encountered fleas at one time or another. Seeing your pet scratch may not necessarily mean it has fleas. Cats and dogs can scratch for a variety of other reasons.
Sometimes fleas are difficult to see on your pet. A good way to check for fleas is to part the fur on your pet’s back and look down to the skin. You may actually see a flea or two.
If you don’t see any fleas, you may see little black flecks that look like dirt which may be flea droppings. To be sure, take some of these and put them on white paper with a little water. If the paper turns red these are flea droppings. Your pet probably has fleas.
Then it is time to use one of the good flea treatments for your pet to eliminate these little parasites.
