In order to spare the environment completely from contamination and to maintain hygienic conditions, only regular cleaning measures will help: Cushions and blankets for the dog are best made of easy-care materials that can be washed at 60 degrees. High-quality tiles made of porcelain are particularly suitable as floor material. With their sophisticated designs, they not only match any ambience - thanks to their smooth, closed surface, they can be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth using a cleaning agent adapted to the dirt. Both dirt and parasites are removed thoroughly and easily. Without the slightest chance of residue being left behind in small gaps, high-pile materials or joints.
Long-lasting protection against fleas and ticks is provided by parasite collars and spot-on preparations that are dripped into the neck of the pet's coat. Although they usually protect for several months, the pet and its environment should be closely monitored: Ticks also seek out humans as hosts and can transmit dangerous diseases such as Lyme disease with their bite. Once fleas have settled in the house, the females produce up to 50 eggs per day, which then become fleas, fleas and new fleas again.
