Fleas On Rabbits

Fleas On Rabbits

Yes, rabbits can get fleas! These ubiquitous parasites feed on the blood of their hosts; as they bite the rabbit to feed, they cause itching. Even if you have only seen 1 or 2 adult fleas, you should be extra vigilant because fleas can lay about 50 eggs daily; there is always the possibility that before you notice the fleas, they have already been laying hundreds of eggs. What’s more, these pesky parasites can also bite people and cause intense itching especially in hypersensitive individuals.

Even if you have indoor rabbits, they can still get fleas. If you have other pets in the household that are allowed outdoors, they can bring in fleas from the outdoors. Also, fleas can easily find their way into homes, just like ants and other insects.

You should ask your Savannah, GA vet for an effective flea product that you can safely use on your pet. For more information, visit website http://westchathamvet.com/.
