Where do dogs get fleas? Why do fleas multiply so rapidly?
No matter where you live or the time of year, your dog is at risk for fleas. New fleas can hatch in as little as five days, or may remain dormant for months. Most pet owners don't recognize a flea infestation right away, so it's important to protect your dog all year-round.
Check out our short video to learn about the four stages in the lifecycle of a flea and find out what you can do to protect your dog.
Be sure to ask your veterinarian how to kill fleas and prevent future infestations with a flea protection product such as Trifexis® (spinosad + milbemycin oxime). Trifexis kills fleas before they can lay eggs. It also prevents heartworm disease, and treats and controls adult hookworm (A. caninum), roundworm and whipworm infections. Trifexis is approved for use in dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age or older and 5 pounds of body weight or greater.
