WHAT IS A FLEA?
There’s no other way to put it - fleas are blood-sucking ectoparasites (live on the skin surface of their ‘host’).
There are 2,200 flea species known in the world today. Only a few of these commonly infest dogs and cats.
Fleas are not the same as ticks.
The most common flea that affects both dogs and cats is the cat flea, or Ctenocephalides felis. Its dark brown or black body is about one to three millimetres long. They can also feed on people, but we’re not their first choice of meal.
INFECTIOUS DISEASES FROM FLEAS It’s not just your cat/dog at risk here. Fleas can carry infectious diseases that are transmitted to humans such as:
Rickettsia spp. - causes flea-borne spotted fever
Bartonella henselae – causes cat scratch fever
Yersinia pestis – causes Plague, an identified agent of bioterrorism
