Development of microsatellites for genetic analyses and population assignment of the cat flea (Siphonaptera: Pulicidae). (1/30)

Cat fleas, Ctenocephalidesfelis (Bouche) (Siphonaptera: Pulicidae), are common ectoparasites of companion animals that negatively impact their hosts directly by causing dermatitis and blood loss during feeding and indirectly through the potential transmission of disease causing agents. We isolated and characterized seven novel microsatellite loci from a partial genomic library of the cat flea enriched for di-, tri-, and tetranucleotide repeats. We screened these loci in cat fleas from two laboratory colonies and one wild-caught population collected at a temporary animal shelter (Parker coliseum) in Baton Rouge, LA. Six loci were polymorphic, with two to 15 alleles per locus and an average observed heterozygosity of 0.21 across populations. Although the two laboratory cat flea colonies were isolated from each other for many years, they did not significantly differ in their genotypic composition. The cat flea population from Parker coliseum was genetically different from the laboratory colonies, but also showed high degrees of inbreeding. Multilocus genotypes of the polymorphic loci were sufficient to assign over 85% of cat fleas to their population of origin. Genetic markers for flea population identity will allow further studies to examine the origins and movement of cat fleas with important genetic traits such as insecticide resistance or pathogen susceptibility. The use of microsatellites also could determine if there are host-specific strains of cat fleas and add insight into the development of the different subspecies of C. felis.  (+info)

Comparative efficacy on dogs of a single topical treatment with the pioneer fipronil/(S)-methoprene and an oral treatment with spinosad against Ctenocephalides felis. (4/30)

In the study reported here, the pioneer fipronil/(S)-methoprene topical product (Frontline(R) Plus, Merial Limited, Duluth, GA) was compared to the oral spinosad product (Comfortis(R) Elanco, Greenfield, IN) for efficacy against adult fleas and preventing egg production. The product presentations, doses and labelling were the one applicable in the USA. Using a standard protocol, 200 cat fleas of mixed sex were applied to dogs on Days 1, 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, and 42. Dogs were combed to remove fleas 24 hours post-infestation, the fleas were counted, collected, and then reapplied to each dog following completion of their respective count. At 48 hours post-infestation, comb counts were performed and fleas were removed. No fleas were collected from any dog in the fipronil/(S)-methoprene group at any 24 or 48 hours post-infestation assessment throughout the six weeks study, yielding a preventive efficacy of 100%. For the spinosad treatment, efficacy was 100% at 24 hours and 48 hours through Day 16, and thereafter declined. The results observed in the spinosad-treated dogs were highly variable between animals. At the 24 and 48 hours counts following the Day 21 infestation, only five of eight spinosad-treated dogs (62.5%) were flea-free. Following the Day 28 infestation, spinosad efficacy fell to 85% and 89%, for the 24 hours and 48 hours counts, and only two dogs (25%) were flea free, compared to 100% flea-free dogs in the fipronil/(S)-methoprene group. No fleas were collected from the fipronil/(S)-methoprene treated dogs throughout the entire study, therefore, no eggs were collected at any time from any dog in the group. However, in the spinosad group adult fleas were found on dogs starting on Day 21 and by Day 30, 42 eggs were collected from one dog that had 107 adult fleas counted at 48 hours. At Day 37 and Day 49, more than 100 eggs were collected from each dog in the spinosad-treated and control groups.  (+info)

Comparative efficacy on dogs of a single topical treatment with fipronil/(S)-methoprene or weekly physiological hygiene shampoos against Ctenocephalides felis in a simulated flea-infested environment. (8/30)

Flea infestations of pets continue to persist due to the lack of knowledge of flea biology and ecology. It is not unusual that pet owners believe regular hygiene, such as shampooing their dogs can replace regular insecticidal treatment. The objective of this study was to compare in a flea simulated environment, modelling exposure similar to that found in a home, that the use of regular physiological shampoo does not control fleas adequately when compared to a long acting topical formulation. Three groups of six dogs were formed: one untreated control group, one group treated monthly with the topical formulation of fipronil/(S)-methoprene, and a third group treated weekly with a hygiene shampoo. All dogs were infested with adult unfed Ctenocephalides felis fleas (200+/-5) on Days -28 and -21. Each animal's sleeping box was fitted with a plastic cup mounted to the inside roof of the box. The sleeping bench of each animal was covered with a carpet to accommodate flea development. The dogs were maintained in their kennels throughout the study. In order to maintain the environmental flea challenge, C. felis pupae (100+/-5) were placed in the plastic cup in each animal's sleeping box on Days -14, -7, 0, 7, 14, 21, 28, 35 and 42. The dogs were combed and fleas counted weekly on Days -1, 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, 38, 45, and 51. The fleas were placed immediately back on the dogs. On Day 60, fleas were counted and removed. Flea infestations in the untreated control group at each count averaged between 46.2 and 74.2 fleas throughout the study. The average number of fleas infesting dogs was significantly different (p<0.05) between the untreated and the two treatment groups and between the two treatment groups at all counts throughout the two months study (Days 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, 38, 45, 51 and 60). The efficacy was never below 99.1% in the fipronil/(S)-methoprene group, and efficacy in the shampoo group was never above 79.2%. Weekly shampooing in treatment group 3 was intentionally delayed after Day 42, to evaluate wether missing a weekly bath would affect the flea population. The Day 48 data indicate that forgetting or delaying a single weekly shampooing resulted in a clear increase in flea numbers and a significant decrease in efficacy from 68.2% to 34.8%. The fipronil(S)/methoprene treatment allowed a continuous control as demonstrated by the high efficacy against fleas, and also the number of flea-free dogs on seven of the nine weekly assessments, in spite of what was essentially a continuous flea challenge model.  (+info)

What Are Fleas and Ticks? Fleas and ticks are external parasites that can cause extreme discomfort for your pet and can also cause serious diseases.. Fleas. Fleas are insects that are ubiquitous in the environment-meaning they can be found almost everywhere. There are more than 2000 species of fleas, but the common cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis) is the one that most commonly afflicts dogs and cats.. A disease of concern that can be caused by fleas is flea allergy dermatitis (FAD), which is a severe allergic reaction to flea bites. Some pets are so allergic that even a single bite can cause a reaction. FAD makes pets miserable. In severe cases, it can cause severe itching and inflammation that, if left untreated, can lead to excessive scratching and chewing that can damage the skin. Secondary bacterial or fungal infections can develop as a result.. Fleas can also play a role in transmitting parasites, such as tapeworms, and bacterial diseases, such as cat scratch fever (bartonellosis), to ...
Prior to the publication of A comparison of jump performances of the dog flea, Ctenocephalides canis (Curtis, 1826) and the cat flea, Ctenocephalides felis felis (Bouché, 1835) (M.-C. Cadiergues, C. Joubert, M. Franc; 2000), most performance measurements for fleas were performed with the oriental rat flea (Xenopsylla cheopis), which is well-known for being the primary vector for the bubonic plague. The authors dont explain why they conducted this research, but the fact that their lab had been maintaining a colony of cat fleas on cats and dog fleas on dogs for years makes the decision sound like it came on a particularly boring Saturday morning, after a night of heavy drinking.. They put together an experimental setup for horizontal jump measurements: sticky plastic, and for vertical jump measurements: vertical cylindric tubes of varying height. They measured the horizontally leaped distances for nine hundred different fleas, and the vertically leaped distances for one thousand and five ...
Specifically, positive fleas were found from both dogs and cats in all four provinces of north-eastern Italy, from dogs in two provinces of south-western Italy (Naples and Caserta), whereas all fleas from Bari province (southeastern) were negative (Table 1).. Fleas from cats showed a tendency (Fishers exact test; p = 0.068) to be more positive (17.6%) than fleas from dogs (10.2%). Male and female fleas showed a similar rate of infection (11.6% and 8.9%, respectively). Prevalence of R. felis among areas and within provinces of the same area was extremely variable, ranging from 0 to 35.3% (Table 1). In general and excluding fleas from Bari province (a single site of sampling) prevalence in north-eastern Italy (23.2%) was significantly higher than in south-western Italy (7.1%) (χ2 test = 14.956; p , 0.01).. Our results indicate that R. felis is present in C. felis fleas from several geographical locations of Italy. The occurrence of R. felis-positive fleas from dogs and cats in north-eastern and ...
OBJECTIVES. The systemic flea adulticide nitenpyram was shown to reach 100% efficacy within 3 hours of treatment in cats. Rapid elimination of fleas is especially important in pets suffering from Flea Allergy Dermatitis to reduce exposure to allergens in the flea saliva. The objective of this study was to demonstrate the efficacy of nitenpyram during the first three hours following treatment at the recommended dose of a minimum of 1mg/kg b.w.. MATERIALS. 15 cats were infested with 100 unfed adult fleas 24 hours before administration of CAPSTAR. Subgroups of 3 cats were combed at 15, 30, 60, 120 and 180 minutes after treatment. Efficacy was calculated against flea counts performed at the same time intervals on subgroups of 3 cats of an untreated control group consisting of 15 cats also.. RESULTS. Efficacy after 15 minutes was 42.5% with a high variability between individuals (SD: 31.4). After 30 minutes between animal variability decreased and efficacy in cats increased to 62.0% (SD: 13.0). ...
The cat flea belongs to the insect order Siphonaptera (Ancient Greek siphono- "tube" or "siphon" + a "not" + ptera "wing", the tube-drinking wingless insects) which in its adult stage is an obligatory hematophage. Adults of both sexes range from 1-2 mm long and are usually a reddish-brown colour, although the abdomens of gravid females often swell with eggs causing them to appear banded in cream and dark brown. Like all fleas, the cat flea is compressed laterally allowing it to slip between the sometimes dense hairs of its host just above the top layer of the skin, resulting in an extremely thin insect that may be difficult to observe even if the hosts coat is pure white.[3]. The cat flea affects both the cat and the dog worldwide.[4] The cat flea can also maintain its life cycle on other carnivores and on omnivores, but these are only chosen when more acceptable hosts become unavailable.[3] Adult cat fleas do not willingly leave their hosts, and inter-animal transfer of adult fleas is rare ...
Eliminate fleas on your pet. Even if you are able to get rid of all the fleas in your home, your pet may bring the eggs and adult insects right back inside. For starters, a simple bath with soap and water is an easy way to drown the existing adult fleas. Another easy way to eliminate fleas quickly is the chemical nitenpyram, which is more commonly known as Capstar. When the pill is given to your cat or dog, all adult fleas on the animal will start dying with 30 minutes. Each dose is effective for 24 hours.. A good grooming with a flea comb is another option for removing adult fleas. Remember to dip the comb frequently in soapy water to kill the insects. Finally, a flea dip or rinse is another way to kill fleas but can only be used for dogs. Sprays formulated for use on cats or dogs are also effective.. ...

Lufenuron is classified as an insect development inhibitor. This chemical is also found in the dog flea medication Program and is primarily designed to disrupt the reproductive capabilities of female adult fleas. Lufenuron is essentially stored in the dogs subcutaneous layer of fat. When adult fleas bite the dog, they eventually suck Lufenuron into their own bloodstream and transfer the chemical to their growing eggs. Some of the Lufenuron are also distributed to feeding larvae.. Technically, what Lufenuron does is that it prevents the flea larvae from producing chitin which is a very important ingredient for the development of a very sturdy and very resilient outer shell. Because there is no outer protective covering for the developing larvae, its internal organs are essentially exposed to the outside air where dehydration can hasten the rate of its demise. This occurs right upon hatching or the shedding of the larvaes old and smaller outer shell.. Because Lufenuron inhibits the production or ...

Posted by Frank on 22nd Jan 2016 My dog has not had a single flea since I started using this on her in August of 2015. Even one flea causes major irritation and discomfort for her. Despite regular bathing and other supposed natural products, nothing worked. Every night I would use a flea comb on her and I would find from 1-3 fleas. The day before I received this product. I gave her a bath, using Dawn dish soap and white vinegar. That night I found two fleas on her. I will also mention that we maintain a clean and tidy house. I believe that she was picking up the fleas on our daily walks in the park. I applied the product before our next walk, and she has not had a single flea since.

The 4-hour inhalation lethal concentration (LC50) value for respirable dinotefuran in male and female rats is > 4.09 mg/L. Although this value falls within the classification category of "harmful by inhalation" (R20), higher concentrations of dinotefuran in the respirable range were not technically feasible after extensive atmosphere development. Since neither clinical signs of toxicity nor deaths occurred at the highest technically achievable concentration, it is considered that dinotefuran does not require classification in the EU under the provisions of Commission Directive 93/21/EEC, Annex VI (1993), and no risk phrase is required in respect of exposure by inhalation ...

In June 2000, suspected cases of Brazilian spotted fever (BSF) occurred in Coronel Fabriciano Municipality, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Pooled fleas collected near two fatal cases contained rickettsial DNA. The nucleotide sequence alignment of the 391-bp segment of the 17-kDa protein gene showed that the products were identical to each other and to the R. felis 17-kDa gene, confirming circulation of R. felis in Brazil.
Ectoparasites are often difficult to detect in the field. We developed a method that can be used with occupancy models to estimate the prevalence of ectoparasites on hosts, and to investigate factors that influence rates of ectoparasite occupancy while accounting for imperfect detection. We describe the approach using a study of fleas (Siphonaptera) on black-tailed prairie dogs (Cynomys ludovicianus). During each primary occasion (monthly trapping events), we combed a prairie dog three consecutive times to detect fleas (15 s/combing). We used robust design occupancy modeling to evaluate hypotheses for factors that might correlate with the occurrence of fleas on prairie dogs, and factors that might influence the rate at which prairie dogs are colonized by fleas. Our combing method was highly effective; dislodged fleas fell into a tub of water and could not escape, and there was an estimated 99.3% probability of detecting a flea on an occupied host when using three combings. While overall ...

If youre aware of a flea problem, you may have already treated your dog to kill adult fleas that are biting him. However, if you did not also treat your home and wash and vacuum pet bedding and resting areas, you only did half of the job. Treating the pet has no effect on immature fleas. They will continue to develop and pupate and turn into biting, adult fleas.. If our technician determines that the worms are indeed flea larvae, we can set you up with a flea program that will finish the other half of the job by treating the overlooked flea "hot spots" in your home. Eliminating the larvae, along with treating the pet, should break the flea cycle..

Eggs are laid in between hairs or in bedding material, they may be found anywhere as they are prone to falling off the animal. The eggs will hatch in 1-12 days. Flea larvae require 1-2 weeks to several months to go through 3 instars. Last instar larvae then spin a cocoon (pupal stage) and may remain inside for up to 20 weeks. The adult fleas will emerge from the cocoon (pupa) and seek a blood meal on the second day after emergence. Adult fleas can survive about one year.. ...

Unlike most fleas, cat fleas remain on their host throughout their entire life cycle. Although fleas are capable of transmitting disease-causing organisms to humans, this rarely occurs in Wisconsin. Fleas more commonly transmit tapeworms to cats and dogs.. Appearance: Adult cat fleas are brown, flat and wingless, have large hind legs adapted for jumping, and are less than ⅛ inch in length. Larval cat fleas are about 3/16 inch in length and resemble tiny, white, hairy caterpillars. The presence of dried blood and dark reddish-brown or black flea excrement (i.e. flea dirt) may be the first noticeable clue that a pet has fleas.. Symptoms and Effects: Fleabites on human skin may result in raised, red bumps that itch. These symptoms may persist for five days or more. Bites found on humans are typically in clusters on lower legs. Some people are resistant to fleabites and may not notice their presence. Other people, as well as pets, may experience fleabite allergic dermatitis, resulting in more ...

Flea Medication: A Buying Guide The control of fleas has grown immensely over the years. A wide range of fleas controlling products are available in the market, and they range from pills to topical formulations. Pet owners are even confused by the various available products. In the mid 1990s, program (Lufenuron) flea medicine was introduced. It was introduced to control fleas in pets, and the medication came in the form of a pill. Although program medication had some successes, its method of action had a lot of limitation. The medication worked by preventing larvae from hatching. Adult fleas, however, were not killed by the chemical. The flea was given time to die a natural death before a pet be could flee from the parasite. The next popular medication to be introduced was the sentinel which was made of both heartworm prevention and Lufenuron. Both program and sentinel medication, however, have not been able to efficiently control adult fleas. introduction of more effective medications has been ...

Flea Allergy (Flea Allergy Dermatitis). Flea allergy dermatitis or FAD is the most common allergy affecting both dogs and cats. Many animals have flea infestations with minimal to no skin disease, while animals with FAD can have profound skin disease with the presence of very few fleas. The allergy is caused by an individual patients hypersensitivity to the flea saliva and it only takes a few bites to induce the problem. For this reason, very regular flea control is essential to help keep FAD animals symptom-free. The itching and skin disease associated with flea allergy is most commonly distributed around the base of the tail, along the back, down the back legs and on the stomach. Hair loss or thinning is often present in those areas and the skin may be red, crusty and have red bumps called papules. The goal to prevent the itchiness associated with FAD is regular flea control. But, sometimes in order to control severe itchiness we may recommend oral steroids. This will depend on the severity ...

Oestrogen appeared to inhibit endosteal bone resorption and may have stimulated subperiosteal bone apposition. ...

my vet actually told me to go ahead and throw a piece in there but perhaps i should reconsider. the problem with treating is that one of my dogs is immunosuppressed for anal fistula and severe allergys im not allowed to put anything to treat fleas on her because that could flare up the immune system and that is just something i do not want.

Cats appear to be the primary reservoir host for Bartonella koehlerae, an alpha Proteobacteria that is most likely transmitted among cat populations by fleas (Ctenocephalides felis). Bartonella koehlerae has caused endocarditis in a dog and in one human patient from Israel, but other clinically relevant reports involving this bacterium are lacking. Despite publication of numerous, worldwide epidemiological studies designed to determine the prevalence of Bartonella spp. bacteremia in cats, B. koehlerae has never been isolated using conventional blood agar plates. To date, successful isolation of B. koehlerae from cats and from the one human endocarditis patient has consistently required the use of chocolate agar plates. In this study, Bartonella koehlerae bacteremia was documented in eight immunocompetent patients by PCR amplification and DNA sequencing, either prior to or after enrichment blood culture using Bartonella alpha Proteobacteria growth medium. Presenting symptoms most often included fatigue,

By Matt Soniak. "For every one flea you see on a dog or cat, theres nine more out in the environment that youre not seeing," says Dr. Craig Prior, medical director of the VCA Murphy Road Animal Hospital in Nashville and president-elect of the Companion Animal Parasite Council.. I wish Id met Prior a few years ago when I had to deal with many pet parents worst enemy. Both my cats got fleas one summer, and I thought the problem had been solved after treating the adult fleas on my feline housemates with a flea bath. I was completely unprepared for the rest of the uninvited guests in the house-the eggs and flea larvae developing out of sight and getting ready to make a meal of my pets (and my legs). Maybe youve made that same mistake by treating the adult fleas you can see, while getting caught off-guard by their larvae.. What exactly are flea larvae and how do you control them? Lets get to know the little buggers.. Fleas have life cycles that are very different from our pets and ours. There ...
What Are Fleas?. Fleas are blood-feeding parasites that can infest many species of birds and mammals. Although fleas on dogs and cats dont infest people, fleas may bite people if an area is heavily infested. Flea infestation is one of the most common medical problems veterinarians see, and pets suffer greatly from this condition. Flea bites can trigger severe allergic reactions in some pets. The intense itching caused by flea infestation causes pets to scratch and bite themselves. This can lead to skin wounds, skin infections, and general misery for your pet. Even if your pet is not allergic to flea bites, fleas can transmit serious diseases, such as bartonellosis (the bacteria that causes "cat scratch disease" in people), and other parasites, like tapeworms.. How Do Animals Become Infested With Fleas?. Fleas are very successful parasites. Temperature and humidity extremes can kill them, but they can survive for long periods of time under a surprising range of conditions. Developing fleas can ...

Fleas are bloodsucking parasites of birds and mammals in the order Siphonaptera. Adult fleas are flattened from side to side and are wingless. The larvae are pale and caterpillar-like. Fleas can travel rapidly by jumping, using their legs and a spring-like mechanism in the body. They are capable of spectacular leaps, covering distances up to one hundred times their body length.. Only adult fleas feed on blood, which they obtain with their piercing/sucking mouthparts. Flea larvae feed on organic debris in bedding or in sleeping areas, and in dust and lint debris in carpeting. However, they are commonest in areas where animals sleep. Female fleas lay eggs in these areas. The eggs take about two weeks to hatch, depending on the temperature. Larval fleas look very different from the adults, having long body hairs, and appearing caterpillar- or worm-like, without eyes or legs. Larvae spin a silken cocoon before transforming into adults. The complete life cycle from egg to egg takes 3-4 weeks ...
You can protect yourself from flea-transmitted diseases by eliminating fleas at the source. Treat your pets and your home with flea killers that include a growth inhibitor. This prevents immature fleas from reaching maturity and reproducing.. Clean pet areas frequently. Vacuuming will remove many fleas from your environment. Hot water washes of pet bedding and blankets will kill both adult and immature fleas. You can also create an at-home adult-flea trap by placing a lamp above a pan of soapy water overnight.

Flea collars, powders, sprays or spot treatments can help make your pet a deadly ride for fleas. These kill the fleas quickly and prevent them from entering your home.. Flea prevention measures will help defend against flea-related diseases. By taking these simple steps, you can eliminate fleas from your environment and ...
Fleas spend most of their lifetime off the pet. They go through a life cycle that includes egg and cocoon stages. While adult fleas are relatively easy to kill with insecticides, the egg and cocoon stages are very resistant.. The entire life cycle of the flea (from egg to larva, from larva to cocoon, from cocoon to adult) can vary from 14 days during warm, moist weather, to several weeks or months under extremes of climatic conditions.. The adult flea must dine on your pets blood to survive. Fleas can jump from 16 to 36 inches. For their size, this is like a human jumping over the Washington Monument! Successful flea control must be directed at both the pet and its environment. And always coordinate treatments to break the life cycle of the flea.. Flea Bite Allergies ...
The life cycles of all fleas are basically the same. They consist of six stages - egg, 3 larval stages, pupa and adult (male or female). The general cycle is illustrated here using the specific life cycle of Ctenocephalides, which contains the two species (C. canis and C. felis) of importance in dogs and cats.. Adults are the only flea stages spending most of their time on a host. They leave the host occasionally and usually only when one host makes contact with another. All other flea stages - eggs, larvae and pupae - are found in the immediate environment of the host. In dogs and cats this would primarily include places in the home and kennel used for resting and sleeping. Therefore by far the greatest majority of fleas are found concentrated in the hosts environment as eggs, larvae, pupae and newly emergent adults and only a small proportion of the total flea population is found on a host as feeding, reproducing adults plus newly laid eggs and hatched larvae that have not dropped off.. Adult ...
With the advancement of flea control treatments such as Frontline, Advantage, Revolution, Capstar and Program, fleas are no longer the nuisance they once were for you and your pet.. Frontline, Revolution, and Advantage are all spot on liquid treatments done once monthly. Frontline protects against fleas and ticks. Revolution protects against ticks and fleas as well as ear mites, roundworms, and hookworms in cats. Advantage protects against fleas. Frontline and Revolution are both waterproof approximately 2 days after application. These products last 30 days. Capstar is a pill given orally to kill fleas very quickly (within 2 hours) but only lasts 24 hours. It is what we use if your pet comes in for surgery, grooming or boarding and has fleas on him/her. Program prevents the flea eggs from hatching, essentially "birth control" for fleas. It is given as a pill. It is also available in a 6-month injection for cats only. Because Program does not kill adult fleas, it is most useful in addition to ...
The life cycle of the flea is similar to that of a moth - egg, larva (caterpillar), pupa (cocoon) and adult. A newly hatched adult flea is unfed, small, black and aggressive. After they have had a blood meal, fleas lighten in colour and become larger. For every flea on your pet there may be hundreds waiting to hatch!. Sometimes flea treatments appear to be ineffective as small black fleas are seen after the treatment. This is because the pupae are quite resistant to chemicals. Fleas continue to emerge from pupal cases because insecticides cannot penetrate the flea pupal case. Ten fleas can potentially reproduce to 250,000 in only 30 days!. Fleas lay eggs on pets when the host is resting. The white eggs fall off the pet onto the carpet, soil etc. Small blind larvae emerge from the eggs. These larvae move away from the light, burrowing down into the carpet, cracks in floorboards or into the soil. They feed on protein, such as flea droppings of partly digested blood. They moult three times before ...
While sterilization and vaccination are key, there are other environmental threats that may be harmful to your pets health. Heartworm disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes, is a potentially fatal disease that can affect dogs all over the country. After being bitten by a mosquito carrying microscopic heartworm larvae, the developing larvae will enter the bloodstream and migrate to the dogs heart. Signs of heartworm disease include coughing, swelling, labored breathing, exercise intolerance and fainting.. Fleas can enter your pets environment in a variety of ways, and most often, the fleas that you are seeing today came from infestations that began weeks ago. Eggs fall from other wildlife into the environment, where they eventually become adults that latch onto your pets body. Adult fleas remain with their host until they die, and it can take up to three months to gain 100 percent control over a flea infestation without proper treatment.. Our clinics offer medications and treatments to ...

By Lina Younes. Several years ago we got a puppy for my youngest daughter. While there was great anticipation for the puppys arrival, there was one thing that we didnt expect: a flea infestation. Upon the puppys arrival, we all started itching. The fleas quickly made themselves at home in the dogs bedding and in our living room sofa, everywhere! I had thought of using a fogger, but didnt think that would address the problem of the fleas on the dog and throughout house. So, I went to the nearest pet shop to get the strongest flea control product available to get rid of those unwanted critters! I bought several dog shampoos and the biggest jug on the shelf. The front label had "kills fleas" written on it so I immediately snatched it and proceed to pay for all the products that were going to make my home flea free.. First thing we did was give the dog a nice bath with the flea control shampoo. Then I wanted to apply liquid flea product that came in that big jug. Before I even opened it, I read ...
Various flea species infect mammals and birds. Fleas suck the blood of their hosts often making them a vector in disease transmission. Fleas are insects of the order Siphonaptera and comprise several genera.
Aim: Chronic exposure to indoxacarb and pulmonary expression of toll-like receptor 9 (TLR-9) in mice.. Materials and Methods: In this study, healthy male Swiss albino mice (n=30) aging 8-10 weeks were used to evaluate TLR-9 expression in lungs of mice following indoxacarb exposure with and without lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Indoxacarb was administered orally dissolved in groundnut oil at 4 and 2 mg/kg/day for 90 days. On day 91, five animals from each group were challenged with LPS/normal saline solution at 80 μg/animal. The lung tissues were processed for real time and immunohistochemical studies.. Results: LPS resulted increase in fold change m-RNA expression level of TLR-9 as compare to control, while indoxacarb (4 mg/kg) alone and in combination with LPS resulted 16.21-fold change and 29.4-fold change increase in expression of TLR-9 m-RNA, respectively, as compared to control. Similarly, indoxacarb (2 mg/kg) alone or in combination with LPS also altered TLR-9 expression. Further at protein ...
Another issue that rears its ugly head more noticeably during the warmer weather is flea infestation. Although technically a year-round problem, it seems more apparent during the warm weather, when pets spend more time outdoors and in contact with other animals. Also, the fleas life cycle is sped up during warm weather, so theres just more of them. If your pet goes outdoors, chances are excellent that she has fleas. In both dogs and cats, the symptoms are similar: scratching, skin disturbances and the tell-tale flecks of "flea dirt", which is actually flea excrement (ugh) where the pet sleeps. It looks brown until moistened; it then turns rusty, as most of its contents are digested blood. Depending upon the extent of the infestation and the individual animals sensitivity, red, raw, hairless areas called "hot spots" may appear on the pets skin. The animal is literally scratching itself raw! These spots are very difficult to treat and the first step is always flea eradication, a tall order ...
The bacteria grow in the epithelial cells lining the fleas gut wall and are excreted in the insects feces. After approximately twelve to eighteen days, the infection will kill the flea. Scratching of a fleabite will infect a person. Rubbing of the bitten area will spread the fleas infected feces into the wound. An infected person will experience headaches, marked prostration, malaise, chills, loss of appetite, nausea, and a rapid rise in temperature with fever after an incubation period of one to two weeks. Within four to six days after the initial symptoms appear a rash will form over most of the body ...
Spinosad is broken down rapidly by sunlight. In the presence of sunlight, half-lives on leaves are 2 to 16 days and less than one day in water. When applied to leaves, some spinosad can be absorbed. However, it does not readily spread from leaves to the rest of the plant. In the absence of sunlight, spinosad breaks down very slowly in water. Half-lives of more than 30 days to 259 days have been reported. However, it binds rapidly to sediment. The halflife in sediment, where no oxygen is available, ranges from 161 to 250 days..

I fear that after reading these victims heart wrenching posts, my negligence as a pet owner is the cause of my indoor cats recent death.. I used Hartz 2x after an escape and subsequent epic flea infestation on Aug. 19th. I did notice vomiting, but that really wasnt too unusual as Newman has always ever vomited after eating too quickly. Later I also noticed a lack of appetite, but I had changed his food and figured he just wasnt that keen on the senior Iams version. After several trips to the vet and inconclusive blood work, i.e., everything looked clear, the Dr. gave me an appetite stimulant which half worked, however, I began to notice hind leg weakness and limping. After a follow up visit and another few ounces of weight loss, she recommended steroids as signs seemed to point to cancer and evidently steroids can be highly effective.. We started the steroids in addition to the appetite stimulant and Newmans health continued to decline, increasing lethargy and complete inability to jump ...
One recurring problems for some pet owners is flea infestation. What problems do the dog face? Blood loss, allergy dermatitis, secondary infection for raw skin patches, and the potential to transmit diseases to humans. Knowing that diseases from these infestations can affect people, parents can be naturally worried. You need to do something. To the list of pet health maintenance activities pet owners do - pet bathing and grooming, routine house cleaning, vet check ups - one should add finding a flea control and treatment solution that works in the long run. Advocate Flea Control is one the most recommended treatments, for very good reasons.Whats different (and convenient) about Advocate is that its topical - you use it on your dogs skin; its unlike taken-by-mouth solutions. Oral solutions include tablets and chewables - the former to be grinded and mixed with pet food, the latter supposed as tasty as pet food itself (if the dog does eat it, thats well and good). There are some reasons why ...

To the Editor: Members of the genus Rickettsia have garnered much attention worldwide in recent years with the emergence of newly recognized rickettsioses. In New Zealand, only Rickettsia typhi and R. felis, belonging to the typhus and spotted fever groups, respectively, have so far been found (1). R. typhi, primarily transmitted by the oriental rat flea (Xenopsylla cheopis), has a worldwide distribution and causes murine typhus in humans (2). At the end of 2009, a total of 47 cases of murine typhus had been recorded in New Zealand. In contrast, although the cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis) can carry R. felis in New Zealand (3), no human infections have been reported. However, because R. felis shares a similar clinical profile to murine typhus, infection can be mistaken for a suspected case of R. typhi (4).. Clinical suspicion of rickettsial infection is widely confirmed by serologic tests with the indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA) being the standard test. However, antibodies against R. ...
