It is usually not true that your pet picked up fleas while boarding or at the groomer’s. If boarding or groomed at a reputable pet clinic such as Cliffdale Animal Hospital in Fayetteville, NC, they will check your pet for fleas before it enters the facility and will treat for fleas if they are found. Your pet will be flea free when it returns home. However, newly emerged fleas in your home can get on your pet immediately when it returns home. Even indoor only pets can get fleas. Fleas can come inside on other pets and yes, they can come in on you! For this reason, all pets in the household need to be treated with a flea product because flea prevention is the key to flea control.
