At our Studio City veterinary clinic, we serve pet owners and their cats and dogs in the local area and from surrounding towns. Our vet team includes Drs. Peter Lowenthal, Nahmi Jones, and James Walters who provide routine exams and vaccinations, as well as emergency care, seven days a week to accommodate busy pet owners.
If your cats or dogs scratch frequently, they may have fleas. This is bad news for your pets and you. Fleas are parasites that afflict your pets, and lay eggs in carpet, furniture, and other places around your home. Left untreated, the eggs will hatch and progress through their life cycle. As adult fleas, they jump on and infest your pets. As allergens, fleas often cause severe itching that can advance to skin diseases.
Unfortunately, no individual flea product has the ability to kill fleas across their entire life cycle. But vet-recommended flea products effective in killing adult fleas are Frontline and Advantage.
Call our North Hollywood pet hospital to set up an appointment with one of our veterinarians. Proper vet care for fleas will give you both peace of mind and healthier pets.
What symptoms do your pets exhibit that could indicate fleas? What flea treatments or preventative measures have you tried so far?
DE is made of finely mlield fossilized shells of minuscule organisms called diatoms. You need to also know that fleas that get sucked into the vacuum bag can live and reproduce there, so be certain to vacuum up some DE powder too, to kill off fleas in the bag. That way, you'll make sure you catch all fleas that survived as eggs and pupae, by being prepared for them as they enter the exposed stages of their life cycle larval and adult fleas. What's more profitable than having a very content, healthy dog who's excited to be alive? .
I agree with half I agree with half some of the above but there is no need to use the boric acid which is bad for you and your pet(not to mention the caecnr it causes)Why not attack the fleas before they hatch well your answer would probably be well there is no such product.CEDARCIDE thats the name of the product i bought it used it not only did it kill the flea but it also kills the eggs and it safe to you and your family the guy tooka drink of it infront of me to prove how safe it is.Then killed 6 fleas with it

This is the only vet I'll bring my dog to. Their care and attention is amazing. They are upfront about pricing and will do what they can to work with you. They are always amazingly considerate of dogs with social anxiety and have treated both Scooby and me with respect. Best vet if you ask me!
