While flea bites on people can cause distress, your pets often suffer much more. You may notice your dog or cat scratch frantically trying to bite the fleas in their fur.
A flea bite is not particularly painful, but you will often be aware as soon as you have been bitten. You may develop some itchiness around the bite though, which could become uncomfortable, depending on your sensitivity.
What do flea bites look like? Given their small size, flea bites often appear as tiny red spots on the skin.
As with other insect bites, it is often difficult to identify fleas just by looking at your bites.
You should consider other factors, which may help to identify your insect problem.
You should consult a pharmacist for advice and treatment if you develop an itchy rash or eczema. These are common symptoms of an allergic reaction to flea bites.
We also advise you to consult your vet if there are any signs of irritation such as reddening of the skin or there are any thin patches in your pet’s coat.
Using professional products, our expert technicians can help to quickly get rid of fleas, whilst ensuring the safety of your family and pets.
