I am told by someone who knows, that there is currently a large rise in the nationwide population of fleas.

Even the tried and trusted Frontline remedy has not been as effective in recent weeks.  These blood-sucking parasites can make your pet’s skin sore causing them to scratch.  In turn, excessive scratching can lead to the skin becoming broken and sore.  This is sometimes referred to as Flea Rash.

Fleas can be bought into the house by your cats or dogs.

If you suspect that your pet has fleas, ensure your animal and its bedding, as well as furnishings and carpets are regularly treated with a suitable flea product from your veterinarian.

Tea Tree Oil Shampoo is quite good as a deterrent, if used regularly alongside your normal flea treatment.  Fleas don’t like the smell of Tea Tree Oil.

Hopefully this should eradicate the problem.
