FLEA AND TICK TREATMENT IN AUSTRALIA
Fleas and ticks are a problem in Australia no matter where you live or what size dog you own and require a strong flea and tick treatment like Bravecto orange for small dogs.
Many pet owners believe that their small house dog or city dog isn’t going to have a problem with ticks. But remember, small dogs tend to travel with their pet owners and are subjected to contact with numerous other pets and people.
Dogs that spend even as little as one day a month in doggie day care or a kennel can be exposed to ticks and fleas.
Fleas and ticks travel with ease from one animal to another, including humans.
FLEA AND TICK HEALTH RISKS FOR SMALL DOGS
Fleas and ticks harbour diseases which can be uncomfortable at minimum and cause paralysis and death at maximum.
Dogs infested with fleas scratch frequently without ever getting rid of the pests. Instead, they wound their own skin, leaving it prone to infection, hairlessness or becoming ulcerated.
Australia has two main ticks that pose the biggest problems, the brown dog tick and paralysis tick. Both are bad news if allowed to remain on the dog and reproduce.
The smaller the dog, the more likely it lives inside the home and that means fleas and ticks becoming a problem for everyone, dogs and humans alike. If you begin to see ticks crawling up your walls, you are already infested.
Fleas and ticks also carry the dreaded Lyme Disease that leads to debilitating physical symptoms and sometimes death.
