Fleas rely on warm blooded animals to consume a meal of blood. These tiny parasites cement themselves to the pet with their saliva. This action of feeding causes minor to severe heath problems for pets. Aliments caused by fleas can cause include; allergy induced dermatitis, anemia, and skin lesions.
