Available from www.vetpharmacy.co.uk, Bob Martin FleaClear is a new addition to Bob Martin’s range of pet flea treatments. It is in spot on form, so that it is easy, less messy and stress free to use when compared to some other flea treatments, such as flea powder, flea tablets and flea collars. The spot on flea treatment is simply applied both on the back of the animals neck and between the shoulder blades, Bob Martin FleaClear Spot On also uses the same active ingredient as Frontline (Fipronil). FleaClear cat treatment protects cats from fleas for up to 5 weeks, while the FleaClear dog treatment protects dogs from ticks for up to 4 weeks and from fleas for up to 8 weeks.
Fleas can be a particular problem for household pets, as the flea breeding cycle is particularly fast, with female fleas capable of laying up to 50 eggs per day. Contrary to what many people believe, fleas do not jump from animal to animal. Instead, some of the eggs from an infected animal fall off as they move around infecting the area they have been in. These eggs then hatch when they sense the warmth and movement of a new animal in that area and jump onto the new animal, thus infecting it. Once a pet is infected the eggs and fleas are then transferred to pet bedding, carpets and other soft furnishing, allowing the infestation to spread.
As flea infestations can lead to other more complex health issues, such as flea allergy dermatitis and even anaemia in some kittens and puppies, it is important to stop pets from getting fleas in the first place. Bob Martin FleaClear works as an excellent preventative measure to stop your pet from getting fleas. However, it can also be used alongside a thorough cleaning programme to help get rid of an existing flea infestation, by killing fleas that are already living on the pet.
