Fleas are especially dangerous to pets, as they are a major carrier for diseases. Fleas can frequently cause dermatitis in dogs and cats, leading to hair loss and in extreme cases anemia.
While many believe that fleas are exclusively an pet nuisance, fleas can carry many diseases that are dangerous to humans as well. Rickettsial infections, endemic typhus, and the bubonic plague can all be transmitted through flea bites. With fleas being especially difficult to get rid of, its important to eliminate them as quickly as possible.
