A Gopup is a healthy pup!
At present, an epidemic is looming, threatening the well-being of Irish pups and dogs, across the country.
It is, of course, the dreaded flea and lice; the curse of the canine.
The problem is only exacerbated by our Irish summer, damp warm weather conditions, creating a breeding zone for these parasites.
Well, how can I prevent this?
Prevention is better than a cure, so therefore, care should be taken to ensure that the dog or pup is isolated from any dogs suspected of having either fleas or lice, as they are commonly transferred from dog to dog.
However, it is not only other dogs that increase your dog or pup’s risk of catching fleas and lice. It is passed on, too, by other wildlife, such as foxes and badgers. Thus, it is essential that you provide your dog or pup with preventative treatment.
Also, dogs or pups who are active in areas with long grass are more susceptible to catching fleas and lice. So, therefore, it is advisable to cut gardens regularly and be cautious of walking dogs or pups in areas of excessive vegetation.
When buying a puppy, it is essential that the home is clean and well-kempt, so as to further prevent the risk of infestation. There are a number of preventative products which you use, pet owners should contact their vet or pharmacist for more information.
Each dog and pup should be checked regularly; on a weekly basis if possible. This can be done by placing your fingers on the dog’s back, nape of the neck, root of the tail, and pulling the hair forward, slowly and checking the skin for any fleas, lice or discomfort.
How to spot flea/lice infestation?
Flea or lice infestation may manifest itself in continuous scratching, knawing of the coat, crying or bald patchs. It is also advisable to purchase a fine toothed comb and use it to comb through the hair, checking for any crawling on the comb or red patchy circles on the skin, which are likely to be flea bites.
Upon discovering either of these, it is essential that you contact your local vet or pharmacy immediately, as they can have serious implications for your dog or pup’s health and can in extreme cases prove fatal, especially in young suckling pups.
I hope this information has gave you all a further insight into looking after your pet’s health regarding fleas and lice. Gopups care about the health of your dog and are constantly seeking to improve the health of Irish dogs.
