The flea parasite comes with serious dangers like the Bartonella infection that can severely harm your dog.
Canine Bartonellosis, according to PetMD, is a bacterial disease caused by the bacterium Bartonella, which can be present in fleas. If your four-legged friend is a connoisseur of the outdoors and enjoys playing outside, he may be susceptible to contracting fleas that contain this bacteria. Insects that carry the contamination can infect your precious pup and cause a variety of harmful symptoms. From symptoms that include coughing to diarrhea, seizures to arthritis and swelling to inflammation of vital organs like the brain, this vile sickness can intensely weaken your pooch. In cases where the Bartonella infection is treated improperly or not at all, your dog can be at risk of life threatening ailments that may lead to years of discomfort or worse
To avoid Bartonella infection in its entirety, keep your canine companion protected from the fleas that carry this bacteria. Use Hartz® UltraGuard Plus® Flea & Tick Spray for Dogs to kill and repel fleas for up to one week and ensure safety against the Bartonella infection.
