Did I mention Fleas?

Fleas can and do pose equally difficult problems for our pets and ourselves. The Fleas is capable of surviving for extended periods of time on and off your pets (and in some cases you). The good news is that fleas of the dog and cat prefer to stay on dogs and cats. There are a subspecies of fleas that prefer to life on and around humans. This is not a big issue for most of us that have good hygiene. However, if your pet has fleas and all pets are removed from your home for over a 72-hour
