Are fleas driving you hopping mad?

Getting rid of fleas can be a tough task, but it does not have to be! Prevention is always better than a fix but sometimes prevention is near impossible. Your cat or dog, if they pick up fleas, is likely to pick them up from other animals, from playing around in the garden or from rolling
around in the sand. As much of a hassle as it can be you cannot really stop your pets from playing outside, so because your pet is still going to be outside and is potentially going to be coming into contact with the likes of fleas, and ticks the best that you can do for them is to keep a vigilant eye and to know how to best deal with the fleas when they do appear.

Anti flea solutions include drops, sprays and tablets. All three have been shown to work, with a lot of pet owners and pets having their own preferences. Do keep in mind that when getting rid of fleas cats do not generally take too kindly to the anti flea sprays as the sound of the
sprayer tends to sound a lot like another cat hissing. Which ever is easiest to dispense to your cat or dog is the going to be the answer to getting rid of their fleas.
