My pet has fleas

Your cat or dog looks to be in discomfort and is scratching or biting their coat.  Is it a skin infection or could it be fleas feeding? What do fleas look like? Before you take your pet to the vet there are a couple of ways to check if you have fleas in the home.

  • Can you see fleas crawling on your pet’s coat?
  • They are normally reddy-brown and about 2mm long.
  • Check the hind-quarters of your dog or the head and neck of your cat. These areas are usually where you will find fleas on your pet.
  • Carefully look at your pet’s skin for fine black droppings. This is ‘flea dirt’ or adult flea faeces and looks like black pepper. An easy way to see this is to use a white piece of paper whilst combing the hairs. These black droppings can be found in the pet bed, carpet or rugs.

How to treat Fleas

Although fleas do not have wings, they have incredibly powerful elongated legs. These allow them to jump long distances and move easily between you and your pets, leaving behind itchy bites.

  • We recommend a professional pest control treatment of both your property and your pets, if you have them. To exterminate the flea infestation.
  • Pest King use safe and effective flea treatments for your home or business.
  • Our fully trained, licensed and insured technicians understand the habits of flea ensuring custom treatments to get rid of all flea issues.
