Fleas are the most common parasite to affect dogs and cats, but most people forget about the cat when treating their households. If you have fleas in your household, you need to treat both your dog and your cat. If you don’t have a cat, remember that the cats in your neighborhood may traverse through your yard at night and carry fleas with them. Treat your yard with a pet safe insecticide to ensure your dog isn’t picking them up that way.
There are over 2,000 different species of flea out there, but the most common one to attack dogs and cats is the cat flea. The cat flea prefers feline hosts but can host off of dogs and humans as well.
