Flea prevention and the Westminster Dog Show

The mid-February airing of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show may encourage pet owners to keep their pups in show-ready shape.

The mid-February airing of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show may encourage pet owners to keep their pups in show-ready shape.

This year's winner, GCH Vjk-Myst Garbonita's California Journey, "CJ" for short, won the grand prize and placed first over 2,751 dogs and nearly 200 other breeds. The German Shorthaired Pointer bested his competitors with his liver-and-white colored fur along with an unaffected and relaxed demeanor, according to the New York Times. 

While well-groomed fur and style are essential, they aren't the only important factors when it comes to keeping dogs ready for show time, especially if they have fleas. According to PetWave, fleas can cause intense itching, skin sores, hair loss and a variety of other problems that can hinder your dog from demonstrating tip-top form. To allow your pet to shine, it's critical to make sure that these annoying pests aren't invited.
