You are sitting in your home and you notice something oddly different with your dog; they are constantly scratching themselves or licking their fur when, at first, you thought it was nothing out of the usual. Warm weather invites many insects to come out and dance in the seemingly harmless grass. Because of this, we want to be wary and pay special attention to flea prevention during spring and summer Maybe your dog hasn't fallen victim to the "endless scratching syndrome" yet, but you want to take steps to prevent the little buggers from invading both your pet and your home.
How Can I Determine if My Dog Has Fleas Other Than Scratching?
The key indicator that your dog has fleas is if you find black specks anywhere they rest, such on the floor, bed or couch. It is flea dirt, and is fecal matter left behind from the fleas. If you do not find the black specks laying around somewhere, you can inspect your dog yourself by getting a flea comb and running it through their fur. Alternatively, you can get a paper towel and rub it across their fur to see if flea dirt appears. Fleas get take a while to get rid of so it is always best to use preventative measures to ensure your dog does not get it.
