Thinking about flea problems in the house gives me the serious heebie-jeebies. But, you know what? We should overthink fleas. It's better to freak yourself out over the idea of fleas in the house than to deal with an issue once it happens. If you think fleas are just a couple of small insects to kill on your dog, you are extremely misinformed. Once you see fleas on your dog, it's safe to assume your house is loaded with flea eggs. Ugh, ready to crawl out of your skin yet?
Flea Problems in the House – I'd Rather Move
I am trying to take the dogs on walks more regularly. It's difficult for me to take all of the dogs at once. It's hard enough for me to manage two little guys, let alone our huge German Shepherd. Our Franklin is still very nervous in life. He's come a long way since we took him in, but he still has major anxiety issues. Walks can be overwhelming for him, but I now see evidence that he loves to go! My sister and her family helped me take The Grump and Franklin on a walk. Franklin was horrified at first, but after a few minutes, he had a blast. I know this without a doubt because now every time I grab my purse to head out, he is all over me to try to come with. Never did he do this before this last walk.
Flea and tick prevention is important regardless of how often you go for walks, but now it's even a higher priority. I mean, there is zero room for messing up here, you guys. If we end up with flea problems in the house, I cannot promise I won't evacuate the premises. Can you imagine? Well, here, I will give you an example of the gross reality. If you see 10 fleas on your dog, there could be forty or more hiding. With 40 fleas you can expect about 80 pupae (cocoons, and the worst word ever), 280 larvae, and 400 flea eggs hiding in your carpet, bedding, couch, and even in between your floorboards.
Since picking up the whole family and moving to the Arctic isn't the ideal response, flea and tick prevention is key. Use BRAVECTO® for 12-week* protection. *BRAVECTO kills fleas, prevents flea infestations, and kills ticks (black-legged tick, American dog tick, and brown dog tick) for 12 weeks. Bravecto also kills lone star ticks for 8 weeks. The yummy chewable tablet is a lot easier to give to your dogs and lasts longer to help prevent lapses in treatment.
