Get Rid of Fleas
Find out how Rentokil can help
Your cat or dog is constantly scratching and biting themselves especially in areas such as neck, thighs and around the tail. Is it merely a skin infection or could it be fleas feeding off their back? Before you take your pet to the vet, there are a couple of ways to check for fleas in your home.
Can you see fleas crawling on your pet’s coat? They are normally reddy-brown and about 2mm long.
Check the hindquarters of your dog or the head and neck of your cat. These are the areas that are targeted and where you might see signs of flea activity.
Carefully look at your pet’s skin for fine black droppings. This is ‘flea dirt’ or adult flea faeces and looks like ground black pepper. A good way to spot it is to use a flea comb over a sheet of white paper, which makes it easier to see the small black specks.
Another sign of a problem is flea dirt on pet bedding, carpets or rugs.
