Where Fleas Come From

Fleas rarely jump from one pet to another, as is often thought. Instead cats pick them up from infested environments

This could be your garden, the local park, a friend's house - any place where an animal that has fleas, such as a rabbit, fox, or another cat or dog, may be found.

Untreated animals leave flea eggs behind wherever they go. New fleas hatch from these infested environments once they sense the warmth, carbon dioxide and vibration an animal such as your pet creates, and jump onto them.

Problems Fleas Cause

Fleas are blood-sucking parasites that can make life miserable for pets and their owners. They can cause:

  • Intense itching and scratching which can result in hair loss
  • Flea Allergy Dermatitis - a very common and unpleasant skin condition caused by an allergy to flea saliva (this needs to be diagnosed by a vet)
  • Tapeworm infestation
  • Anemia in kittens

Flea lifecycle

Flea infestations start with just 2 fleas, with the female laying hundreds of flea eggs within a matter of days. FRONTLINE® Spot On helps prevent infestation by killing adult female fleas before they lay eggs.

This diagram demonstrates the 4 main stages of the common flea life cycle including flea eggs, larvae, pupae and adult fleas.
