How bad can one flea be?

"The more the merrier" is not the case when it comes to fleas.

"The more the merrier" is not the case when it comes to fleas. In fact, a flea infestation is a nightmare. No one wants tiny insects crawling all over her furry friend or laying eggs in her furniture. But as awful as a whole infestation can be, the truth is, even one flea can bother your dog and cause problems. According to Lakewood Veterinary in Rushford, New York, a single flea can bite its host up to 400 times a day. That means that if your pup has 10 fleas, it can have up to 4,000 itching bites in 24 hours. 

You can see why it's important to implement flea control as quickly as possible if you find your pooch is having a problem. For fast and effective relief, Hartz offers treatments like Hartz® UltraGuard Plus® Flea & Tick Dog Shampoo – Deep Conditioning. It kills fleas and ticks on your pup and helps prevent re-infestation for up to two weeks. It is formulated with coconut extract to moisturize your dog's fur.
