What Do Dog Fleas Look Like Under a Microscope

If you come across small critters that look brown, flat, and oval that move very quickly, your dog probably has dog fleas. Fleas leave behind “flea feces” or “flea dirt,” which look like flecks of black pepper or dirt. Dog fleas and cat fleas are very similar and are often confused with each other, and generally need a microscope to tell them apart due to their tiny statures.

Can Dog Fleas Make Pets Sick?

Throughout Austin, Texas and in surrounding areas dog fleas can be a growing issue. They are more than blood thirsty pests looking to rob your beloved fury family members of their blood; they are capable of being harmful to their health as well. More often than not, a dog flea will sustain their life on one host in its lifetime. If a dog flea is forcibly removed from their host, they will either try and return or find a new host. So, how do dog fleas hurt dogs and cats? Flea bites can be painful to these pets; and extremely itchy. Some cats and dogs develop an allergy to fleas that develop into flea bite dermatitis on the head, neck and at the base of the tail that leads to hair loss, red skin and raised nodules and scabs. As dog fleas feed on blood, a severe flea infestation can result in a very large amount of anemia and blood loss. Also, all fleas carry tapeworms that can cause problems with nutrient absorption.

“We will not hesitate to call them if the problem arises again, and we will certainly be contacting them for all of our future pest control needs.”
