So how and why did you bring fleas into the house? You didn't roll around on the grass with Rocky and all the neighbors' hounds - right? Did you take an afternoon nap under the trees with the Jones' orange tabby last week? I didn't think so!
Fleas tend to jump onto your pants legs and other body areas (smelling or
sensing your warm blood - their food) when you walk across grass, brush by bushes,
common public areas, even just a door mat where other animals have been. If you live in an apartment building or
townhouse the concentration of pets in your area make it even hard to control
fleas. People walk their dogs by your entrance or common walkways numerous
times per day. if you use an elevator, it increases the likelihood by thousands
of times per day since your neighbors probably walk their dogs via the elevator,
and you and your pets are a very captive audience.... Read on to see How Did My Indoor Cat or Dog Get Fleas See how we can help your pet family with all types of behavior, health, and other issues with animal communication and Reiki for animals.
