Almost all dogs at some time or another come in contact with fleas. Those nasty little black bugs that burrow in their fur to make a home for themselves. Yep, that's right. Fleas use your dogs coat as their own personal living quarters. And depending on the size of your dog, it can be quite roomy! Fleas are like modern day mini vampires, only they eventually die and it doesn't require a stake through the heart. Which is good because finding a stake that small could be difficult. But in all seriousness, fleas are extremely harmful to your pet. The constant biting from fleas can be painful, and cause severe itching. Not to mention, they're losing blood, which if not treated can lead to anemia over time.
One of the worst things your pooch can acquire from fleas are tapeworms. When a flea bites your dog, he will often lick the area to sooth the pain. When doing this, your pup can easily ingest fleas. Because all fleas carry tapeworms, your poor pooch can become a host for these pesky worms which results in even MORE damage to your dogs health.
