Your Dog Have Fleas?
dermatology in Barnegat, NJ
can address itching, which can come about from ticks and fleas or
result from food or skin allergies. For instance, if your dog has
fleas, the saliva from the pests are extremely allergenic. Therefore,
a single flea can cause a problem such as flea allergy dermatitis or
FAD. When a dog has FAD, it often surfaces at sites such as the head,
neck, base of the tail, or groin.
Your Dog Away From Wooded Areas and Dog Parks
in pet dermatology can treat this problem and recommend that dog
owners keep their dogs away from areas that often contain fleas.
These areas include dog parks or wooded area. Flea preventatives are
given in the form of a collar or oral medicine. It just depends on
your pet’s individual needs.
Bite Inflammations Also Cause Skin Distress
dermatology also covers tick bite inflammations. The longer a tick
stays attached to the dog’s skin, the worse the condition will get.
A secondary bacterial condition can cause additional itching and
irritation. To prevent tick bites, limit your dog’s access to
wooded sites or dog parks. By keeping away from both sites, your dog
will stand less of a chance of getting bitten by a flea or tick.
