Dog Parasites

Dog Parasite growth regulator or IGR are also used. These provoke tremors and convulsions and later on paralysis and death in the flea. They act against the adult fleas as well as the larvae. The IGR prevent the transformation of the larvae and provoke their death. In effect, the products that act against the stages of the flea should only be used once in a while, while the others that just act in one stage should be used more periodically because eggs, larvae and adults co-exist at the same time.

The Other Products: Another gamma of products to fight a Dog Parasite is those that are administered orally. The substance reaches the blood and when the flea absorbs the blood it also ingests the growth inhibitor. The eggs they lay will not reach their protection stage. With this system the flea does not die but I cannot reproduce. Therefore, there products have to be associated with other external products to eliminate the adult fleas.

For the Right Use: A scientific experiment allows us to illustrate the flea's behavior. When the flea is studied and placed in a box with a peace of rug and sprayed with insecticide, the flea weaves its pupa under the piece of rug protecting itself form the insecticide. What we have to do is reach all the corners and all the places where the flea could be hiding.
Attention: the fleas might develop a certain resistance to some products. This implies that we have to change the type of insecticide that we use, on both the dog and the surroundings. We must always associate an external product if we are using oral products.

Skin Illnesses: If we respect the hygiene norms then we will be able to fight and prevent skin illnesses. The prevention is fundamental because once they have been manifested; it is difficult to eradicate them. The dermatitis includes all the infection of the deepest part of the skin: the endodermis. These are manifested in different ways: there is hair loss in different areas or forming big spots, the animal is scratching or licking itself. The first thing is to determine the cause of the hair loss, and the lack of shine. Before we do anything we must look for the medical cause that originates the problem, before we even start giving the dog vitamins or minerals.

A Protective Shell: The regulation of the secretion of tallow depends on several factors. The sexual hormones play an important role. The lack of some vitamins, especially vitamin A, provokes different changes in the secretion of tallow. The tallow is a substance that protects the skin from outside aggressions, such as cold and water. When the secretion is abnormal, the skin is more sensitive to infections. On the other hand, it increases the amount of bacteria that develop in it and then piodermitis appears. The hyper secretion is translated into the tallow rhea. This is the excess of tallow in the skin. This is manifested by the appearance of layers due to the strange skin anomaly. The dog will not always scratch, but the aspect of the hair changes. In the tallow rhea, the skin and the hair are dry and have a waxy aspect. After touching the hair a thin layer of a waxy substance sticks to the fingers. The hair looks dirty and wet. During greasy tallow rhea, the skin and the hair are oily and they stick to each other. The dog smells like stale fat. One last problem is appreciated by a blackish stain, scaly and hairless. If the dog is washed excessively, the protection generated by the tallow is destroyed and the final consequence is the increase in the secretion. The dog's skin is irritated, oily and smells really strong. Allergies
