Saint Bernard Pet Care Flea Powder is a gentle, delicately scented, water-free, flea treatment formula designed to kill fleas on dogs and cats.
Saint Bernard Pet Care Flea Powder is ideal to use in pets with difficult to control flea infestations. Flea infestations can cause discomfort to your pet, by biting and irritating them. In some cases, where your pet is allergic, a more severe disease can form called Flea Allergic Dermatitis.
What are Fleas and why should I control them?
The common flea (Ctenocephalides felis) is an external parasite of both dogs and cats. At the minimum, the flea causes irritation to your pet by biting them and causing itching. In some cases your pet can become allergic to the flea saliva, leading to Flea Allergic Dermatitis. Your pet can end up with other dermatitis conditions secondarily to itching and self-trauma, which can make treatment even more tricky.
If this weren’t enough, fleas can also transmit other diseases and parasites, including Dipylidium caninum (a tapeworm), which can be transmitted to both your pet, or even humans!
With fleas what you see is not necessarily what you get. They lay eggs at a rate of knots, which fall into carpets, gaps between floorboards etc, and getting rid of them altogether can be a time-consuming process. Keeping on top of fleas before they can reproduce, and treating the environment is the key.
