Flea Treatment and Prevention
Fleas are small, dark-colored insects that live in shady, moist, or humid environments until they can hitch a ride on an animal or shoe. It is normal for people with cats and dogs to encounter fleas at some point, but they also may come from a wild animal, such as a raccoon or squirrel living in the attic or chimney. Valley’s technicians are trained to use the best methods to treat for fleas and their eggs.
Fleas typically jump low onto an ankle, and make their way up bite-by-bite, which can cause mild to severe itching to animals and humans. It is best to maintain a preventative topical or oral treatment for your pets. Weekly treatment is often recommended at first, followed by monthly treatment if needed. Valley’s technicians can take the guesswork and frustration out of treating flea infestations.Treat and Prevent Fleas
