Abstract

Fleas are the most prevalent ectoparasites found on dogs and cats. For most small animal practitioners, flea-related health problems are number one. While a mild infestation of fleas is not significant clinically, the associated dermatitis, tapeworm infection, hemobartenellosis, and anemia are the major health problems.
