Fleas, allergens pose problems for pets Obituaries during balmy summer months
By ROSE MARIE EASH
The wet, warm weather is responsible for ‘a whole lot of scratching going on* among household pets according Dr. MU View VI Doherty said the last few years and the current warm and humid environment means pet owners will have to really work at keeping fleas under control and should be especially alert to possible allergic skin reactions in their pets.
“Two things come to mind very quickly — fleas and allergens,’* said Doherty. “Fleas winter over locally anyway, but for the last three years they’ve really thrived. They propagate best at 85 to 90 degrees with 80 percent humidity and that’s what
we’ve been having.**
According to Doherty flea control depends on a very consistent effort of treating and re-treating the animal and the environment. He suggests asking your veterinarian, pest I people or pet stores for help vice* for a flea control pro-
However, according to Doherty, not all scratching is a result of fleas. “Allergens affect animals more in their skin than in the respiratory system where people arc affected,” Doherty said. “The scratching may be because of allergic reactions to pollen or molds instead of fleas.” Scratching is not the only thing to worry about under the current weather conditions.
Doherty said that heartworms are a problem when you have a lot of mosquitoes, and the warm, wet
weather is a perfect breeding environment for mosquitoes which can infect animals with heartworms. “We need to practice heartworm prevention here year around,” said Doherty. “We treat 40 to 50 dogs a year for heartworm. It’s not as common to find heartworm problems in cats and there’s really no preventative approved for them.”
Cats, however, do suffer from flea allergies more than dogs according to Doherty. Although they don’t have as many fleas as dogs because they groom themselves, they are more subject to allergic skin reactions to fleas he said. Cats also can have skin reactions to allergens. “There are a lot of nice things about living in New Braunfels but being free of allergies isn’t one of them — for people or pets.”
