Just like the rest of your family members, you want your pup to be comfortable and happy, but that can be hard to achieve when you notice it's dealing with fleas. For big dogs, fleas can be extremely irritating, but for small dogs and puppies, a flea infestation can be deadly. According to Vet Street, your pet can experience blood loss due to severe flea infestations, that can lead to anemia. Smaller dogs are especially susceptible to this condition because they don't have as much blood in their system as larger dogs do. Some of the signs that your pup is suffering from anemia might include pale gums, weight loss, loss of appetite and trouble exercising.
Prevention is key when it comes to protecting your pup against pests which is why Hartz flea has products like Hartz® UltraGuard® Flea & Tick Collar for Puppies.
