Fleas are parasites that feed on the blood of dogs (puppies) or cats, inflicting misery on them with a maddening cycle of biting, itching and scratching. Two fleas can quickly lead to an infestation of thousands. Adult fleas, are visible to naked eye, only make about 5% of the infestation. The other 95% of the population is made up of three other flea life stages: eggs, tiny worm-like larvae and cocooned pupae. These developing stages can be found hiding in the environment and gradually mature into biting adults. The entire life cycle can be completed in 14 days, however it may take longer due to environment. Fleas are common in warm season and can cause itchy dermatitis and warring appearance in dogs and cats.
