Paul from Norcross writes,
Can fleas kill dogs?
While there is no evidence that dogs have died from flea bites, they can make your pet very uncomfortable. Fleas can be a source of disease and irritation for pets, since they scratch constantly while infested, roughing up their coats and causing sores. Animals can develop an allergy to these bites, which can cause an extreme reaction. Some fleas can transmit diseases if they have been feeding on infected rats and can also carry tapeworms.
