My dog ​​has fleas



A dog with fleas can, in addition to catching certain affections, be very inconvenient. This is why it is important, to know the functioning of the chip in order to act at best to eliminate them with the help of products.

The chip and how it works


The flea is a wingless insect (which facilitates the fight) composed of a flattened body allowing it to hide in the hair (which complicates the fight!) With huge mouthparts for sucking blood (which bothers a lot the dog!). She only stays on the animal to take her meal, an hour at most during the day. The rest of the time, it evolves in carpets, carpet…
She only lives twenty to thirty days, but she lays thousands of eggs . As an adult, the flea lays thirty-six to forty-eight hours after its meal. The eggs (in one to eight days) turn into larvae, then (in ten to twenty days) surround themselves with a small shell, the pupa. The larvae are thus protected and they will hatch when the days are warmer. But they can thus withstand more than a year.
The flea also transmits a very common digestive worm in dogs: the dipylidium or tapeworm. The flea carries with it the eggs of this digestive parasite. The dog is infected by licking itself.
Regular examination of your dog's coat will allow you not to miss these parasites but, once discovered, it should be got rid of. On the market, you can find flea products. For specific cases of scabies, ringworm, etc., treating products can only be obtained by prescription.
