How to Know When Your Pet Has Fleas or Ticks
Fleas are the most common parasite to bug your furry friends. They feed on blood and are always outside, sharing the environment with household pets who’ve been taken out on walks. Ticks also feed on blood and can cause many diseases with their biting.
Your pet may have fleas if they experience the following symptoms:
- Flea eggs in their coat, which look like small, white grains
- Hair loss
- Excessive biting, licking, or scratching at skin
- Pale gums
Alternatively, your pet might have ticks if they experience complications, including:
- Blood loss
- Skin irritation or infection
- Lyme disease, a bacterial infection that causes swollen lymph nodes and sometimes kidney failure
- Cytauxzoonosis, an infection that can be fatal for cats
While fleas and ticks can produce seemingly small complications for your poor friend, infections can escalate and turn into serious diseases if not treated properly. You need to bring in your pets for parasite protection to ensure this will never happen.

Mayfair Animal Hospital offers multiple options for prevention and control of both external and internal parasites so we can rid your pet of bugs, for good. Fleas can lay up to 50 eggs per day, which is why it’s important for us to begin your pet’s wellness care as soon as possible.
