Understanding Fleas

As most pet owners are aware, flea infestations are quite a nuisance. They are capable of causing a range of problems to both pets and pet owners, so keeping them under control is a definitely a necessity. This article will briefly explore the problems fleas can cause, the fleas lifecycle, and methods of prevention.

 

The Problems They Cause

Irritation– Fleas have sucking mouthparts which are inserted into the skin for them to feed on blood and their saliva contains anticoagulants to keep blood flowing to the bite site. The action of the mouthpart insertion and anticoagulant chemicals leads to itching and irritation.

Dermatitis– Some pets will develop an allergic reaction to the flea bite which can lead to skin conditions such as flea bite dermatitis.

Anemia– Anemia means a below normal count of red blood cells. If exposed to severe infestations the feeding fleas can significantly reduce ... Click here to read more....

Grooming Corner ~ Information on the questions you may not want to ask ~ Anal Glands.

Dogs such amazing, loving and smelly creatures. Smelly doesn’t even begin to describe what anal glands are. They are little sacks just inside the anus that produce a liquid that is expelled when the dog does its business. Dogs are supposed to be able to expel the anal glands, but sometimes humans have to help.

 

I’m sure you’ve all seen a dog scoot across the floor, that is a major sign that your dog needs its anal glands looked at. At Paddington Pups we can express them externally, while your local vet will do them internally. The difference being the vet will just get more out of the anal glands.

Frank is a two and a half year old sausage dog who has been regular member of Paddington Pups since he was a three-month-old puppy back in 2016.
