Fleas and ticks are common parasites that can cause significant health problems in dogs. It is essential to know the prevention measures, treatment options, and dangers associated with these pests, as well as their seasonality.
Prevention is the key to protecting your dog from fleas and ticks.
  • Use antiparasitic products recommended by your veterinarian, such as collars, pipettes, or oral tablets. These products should be administered regularly according to the product instructions.
  • Brush your dog's coat regularly to detect the presence of parasites and maintain healthy skin.
  • Wash your dog's bedding, blankets, and toys regularly and vacuum areas where your dog is resting.


Treating flea and tick infestations

If your dog has fleas or ticks, it's important to get rid of them quickly to prevent complications:

  • If you suspect an infestation, consult your veterinarian for advice on appropriate treatment and products to use.
  • Use treatments recommended by your veterinarian to eliminate fleas and ticks on your dog.
  • Use a tick hook or tick clip to carefully remove ticks from your dog's skin. Do not pull the tick with your fingers, as this can leave the tick's head in the skin, causing an infection.
  • Wash your dog's bedding and blankets and treat resting areas with specific pest control products.
Dangers of fleas and ticks

Fleas and ticks can cause a variety of health problems in dogs, including intense itching that can lead to allergic reactions, skin infections, and hair loss. Ticks can transmit serious illnesses, such as Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, and ehrlichiosis, which can cause long-term health problems in dogs. A severe flea infestation can cause anemia in dogs, especially puppies, due to the significant blood loss caused by repeated flea bites.

Seasonality of fleas and ticks

The seasonality of fleas and ticks varies according to climate and region.
Fleas are most active during the hot, humid months, usually between spring and fall. However, they can survive inside homes all year round, making prevention essential in all seasons.
The season for ticks varies depending on the species, but they are generally most active in spring, summer, and fall. In some areas, ticks can also be active during the mild winter months.

Preventing and treating flea and tick infestations is essential for your dog's health and well-being. By taking preventative measures and treating infestations quickly, you are protecting your dog from the health problems associated with these parasites.

Be sure to consult your veterinarian for advice on which products and treatments are best for your dog, and stay alert for signs of infestation regardless of the season.
