Fighting Fleas in Warmer Weather

Fighting Fleas in Warmer Weather

As the sun shines and the weather warms, many of us are preparing our BBQs and paddling pools and hoping for a summer much better than the last. But as the weather warms, a few creepy critters begin to crawl their way into our homes finding solace on our pet’s skin and fur. 

With the summer sun shining down on our four-legged friends, fleas are prone to attack and as we always say at Natural Cornish Pet Shop; prevention is most definitely better than cure. With a range of sprays and ointments available to help keep fleas at bay, ensure your furry friend’s skin is soothed this summer, with Natural Cornish Pet Shop, and invest in some simple treatments to keep those pesky parasites at bay.

Woes of Warmer Weather

When the warmer weather hits, we tend to rejoice at the thought of what the superb sunshine will bring. However, as the temperatures potentially soar across the UK in the upcoming months, we can see a rise in fleas in our four-legged friends. 

In warmer temperatures, flea eggs tend to grow and hatch at a much faster rate increasing the likelihood of infestation in both our pets and our homes. With flea infestation being a nasty problem to treat, keeping your dog’s flea free is the best way to ensure you and your pets can enjoy the summer sun without any worry of unwanted visitors. In addition to regular flea treatment, anti-flea shampoos, sprays and washing bedding regularly can help prevent fleas becoming a problem in our lives. 

Benefits of Being Flea-Free

Having fleas isn’t the end of the world but can be a tricky task to overcome for both pets and the humans living with them. Unlike other critters, sprays and ointments can be used on your pets fur to prevent your pooch from picking up these pesky parasites. Often climbing onto their hair from outside or even other animals they come into contact with and can easily infest if left untreated. 

Symptoms can be a prickly plight for our furry friends leaving their skin red, sore and itchy beyond belief. Fleas can be identified on your pet’s fur easily (if you have a lighter coloured cat or dog - it is even easier) with areas prone to bites being their backs and bellies. If you notice your pet scratching these areas, take a look for fleas and if you notice some there, treat immediately.
