Why We Hate Fleas
Most people know the common problems of fleas for cats, dogs, and sometimes even humans. The bites itch and their saliva can be an allergen causing rashes, and they can cause skin problems when your cat or dog scratches non stop. What most people don’t know is that fleas actually carry many diseases just like mosquitoes and ticks. Fleas find “hosts” otherwise known as warm-blooded animals. Most of the time they usually affect dogs and cats, but they can also be opossums, rats, and any other rodents. According to the ASPCA, since fleas can consume 15 times their own body weight in blood, they can cause anemia and a significant amount of blood loss over time. They can even cause tapeworm! The flea was actually the cause of the bubonic plague in the middle ages! It is still the carrier of the plague today, but thank goodness for antibiotics.
