We offer a flea treatment for pets. For this service we'll use our patented Pure Oxygen Fungal Wash & Deodorizer in combination with a safe and powerful flea and tick killing shampoo. This will involve a good soaking down followed by a thorough bath as per our Package #2 or #3 service. This cost for the flea treatment is based on the size of your pet and it is in addition to the cost of the regular bath (#2) or groom service (#3).
While our flea bath treatment is effective in killing the fleas off your dog, it is important to understand its life cycle and know that fleas love 65-80 degrees temperatures and humidity levels of 75-85 percent. Under optimal conditions, the flea can complete its entire life cycle in just fourteen days! Just think of the tens of thousands of these little rascals that could result when conditions are optimal.
Knowing this life cycle allows you to understand why it is always important to treat both the host animal and the indoor and outdoor environment in order to fully control flea numbers. Simply sprinkling some flea powder on your pet will not work; simply vacuuming the home vigorously will not work, simply placing a flea collar or using a flea topical on your pet will not work.
In addition to bathing to kill the fleas on your pet, we recommend that you consult your vet who can offer additional long term relief for your pet with treatments such as pills and other spot-on chemical treatment which have proven to be some of the fastest ways to rid your pet of fleas. The reality is, there is no instantaneous way to remove fleas from your dog or cat, this requires ongoing care.
Dogs and cats often get infested with fleas through contact with other animals or contact with fleas in the environment. The strong back legs of this insect enable it to jump from host to host or from the environment onto the host. (Fleas do not have wings, so they cannot fly!) Sometimes, the flea’s bite can cause itching for the host but for a sensitive or flea-allergic animal, this itching can be quite severe and can lead to hair-loss, inflammation and secondary skin infections. In fact, for some pets, hypersensitivity to the flea's saliva, will itch all over from the bite of even a single flea bite!
