Aside from being an itchy nuisance, fleas pose many threats to the health of animals. One infection fleas can transmit through their bite is Bartonella Infection, known to many as "Cat Scratch Fever," which causes swelling of the lymph nodes and other symptoms such as vomiting. Fleas that are ingested by animals can transmit tapeworms to an animal, a potentially deadly parasite that siphons nutrients from the infected animal's digestive system. Repetitive flea bites can also cause anemia, as they feed directly from the bloodstream. Additionally, animals biting and scratching affected areas can create hot spots and even flea allergy dermatitis from the constant abrasion.
Ticks have a bite that can be hard to notice and, even when they are removed, can sometimes leave their head behind to contribute to further infection, inflammation and irritation. Ticks often travel from one host to the next, sharing any diseases they ingested.
These potential diseases include:
- Lyme Disease
- Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
- Relapsing Fever
- Colorado Tick Fever
This is just a few of the problems ticks present to animals, many of which can be contracted by humans as well.
