Fleas Fleas Fleas

Fleas love the fall in northern Connecticut! They are comfortable outdoors until consistent sub freezing weather and indoors all winter long. Look carefully for adult fleas or the small dark specks of flea dirt on your pet’s coat. Animals allergic to the flea bite may scratch intensely, losing fur and creating raw areas. Here are a few suggestions for successful flea control:

  • Use high quality topical pour on treatments every 3-4 weeks on all of your pets for a minimum of 6 months. Frontline, Advantage, Vectra are some of the pour ons that are safe and effective


  • Clean the environment as well as possible. Remove throw rugs, door mats and wash bedding. Remember that the majority of the flea life cycle is spent as microscopic eggs and larvae that can hide in the tiniest cracks in the floor and deep in the carpet. In 1 to 6 months, the flea becomes an adult and immediately looks for a blood meal preferably from your pet. If your pet has an effective flea product on the adult flea will die and the cycle is broken.


  • Allow only pet visitors in your pet’s environment that are flea free



  • For persistent flea problems consult with our doctors
