Fleas are the most common of all external parasites found on pets. Ctenocephalides felis, the cat flea, is the most prevalent species of flea found on both cats and dogs. An infestation of fleas is both unpleasant and potentially dangerous for pets and their owners.
A flea‘s life cycle lasts anywhere from a few weeks to a month, though under the right conditions it can continue for much longer.
One of the main factors that allow fleas to rapidly complete their lifecycle is warmth and central heating, therefore, fleas can reproduce all year round.
No matter where you live in South Africa there is always a potential risk for your dog to become infested with ticks. Ticks can be found in long grass, parks, fields, woodlands. Often, they will attach to your dog’s skin where the coat is thin such as around the ears or close to the ground such as on the paws. When they’ve attached, they will engorge themselves on your dog’s blood causing their body to swell. During feeding ticks can transmit disease, like Babesiosis and Ehrlichiosis. These can be a serious risk to your dog’s health.
To stay on top of fleas and ticks, dogs should be treated regularly as this can considerably reduce the chance of flea re-infestations. Being proactive about prevention is important with any health condition. Fleas and ticks can be found all year round and can multiply rapidly, so it is important to treat your pets on a regular basis –usually monthly. We recommend asking your vet and they will advise you what treatment is most appropriate for your dog.

"Tammy is a 6 year old, red female Persian. Something must have happened to her at La Brie: My snobbish little cat turned out a darling! She didn’t disappear in her hiding place. She continued to eat and drink and play, and talks to me with sweet soft “mew-mews”. She even coaches me to come to bed with her at night!
Thank you so much for taking good care of her. I’ll bring her again next time, and perhaps she will behave in a less regal, more ordinary way."Annatjie
