PetAction Reports Fleas Have Been Around for Roughly 100 Million Years

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Eagle, Idaho) Fleas remain in abundance on the earth today, and this should not surprise humans. For roughly 100 million years now, fleas have occupied the planet, and there are currently over 2,000 species and subspecies that have been identified. Pet owners need to be concerned about this common pest, as it can do serious harm to an animal. Thankfully, PetAction ( offers a flea and tick solution that both pet owners and their furry friends will appreciate.

“Fleas may transmit tapeworms to a pet and they can bring about allergy induced dermatitis, a problem that plagues many animals. Over time, if the fleas attack the animal, the pet may develop anemia, a condition in which their red blood cell count drops. The pet may become chilled, display pale skin, appear overly tired, develop shortness of breath or contract heart disease. In addition, they may begin eating clay, dirt and/or ice to try to combat the problem,” the staff at PetAction ( reports.

Fleas aren’t the only concern of pet owners, nevertheless. Ticks remain active all year long, yet many humans believe they only pose a threat during the summer months. In fact, it takes a period of temperatures below ten degrees Fahrenheit before ticks die off. They do become less active during the winter months, but may still attach to a host. It simply takes more effort on their part. They are more abundant during wet winters or when temperatures remain mild all year round.

Ticks transmit Lyme Disease, yet this isn’t the only problem associated with these pests. They may also transmit a variety of other illnesses, including canine tick paralysis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and tularemia. For this reason, a pet owner must be vigilant at all times and, with more than 800 species of ticks, a pet owner needs to be aware of the risks and take action.

“PetAction ( offers a flea and tick solution that is easy to use. It is fast acting and waterproof and protects an animal against these common pests. Owners are sure to appreciate the ease at which it is applied, and pets are sure to enjoy the relief they obtain from the itching that occurs with a flea problem.

It controls fleas, their eggs and larvae, ticks and chewing lice, giving pet owners comfort they all doing all they can for their furry friends,” the staff reports.
