Dangers Of Fleas And Ticks
Although fleas and ticks are a very popular feature on most dogs, it does not make them normal features that dogs always have. More than you think, these insects can be very dangerous and therefore should be treated with serious attention when they surface.
Fleas and ticks are not harmless. They go beyond causing irritation and actually directly cause diseases themselves.
One of such diseases they are highly responsible for causing is tapeworm infection. Fleas can transmit baby tapeworms into the digestive system of your dog, which then grows to become adults.
This tapeworm infection leads to weight loss, nutritional deficiency, and may even become much more severe than that. Another illness they are responsible for is flea-bite anemia.
When Fleas stay on the body of your dog, what they mostly do is suck blood. In just a space of a couple of weeks, one single flea on the boy of your dog can infect the dog with over a thousand of its blood-sucking descendants.
In the process, they create tiny sores which eventually irritate your dog. The obvious reaction of the dog is to scratch that surface in order to make the irritation go. In the process, the tiny sores can become bigger open wounds.
As you know, exposed wounds are a gateway through which many harmful organisms can gain entry into the body and in the process cause diseases.
As fleas and ticks suck the blood of your dog, they cause a gradual, although slow reduction in the blood count of the dog. This reduction in the blood, in turn, reduces your dog's general health and viability and, therefore, its ability to fight infections and diseases.
Also, the barrage of infections they expose your dog to will also cause the immune system to weaken under heavy pressure, which may lead to even more infections.
From the foregoing, you will agree with us that fleas and ticks on the body of your dog is something serious.
