Flea Biology and Control : The Biology of the Cat Flea. Control and Prevention with Imidacloprid in Small Animals

The book describes in great detail the complex life cycle of fleas based on the example of the cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis), the most important ectoparasite worldwide. Besides being the cause of painfully itching bites and allergic skin diseases, it is also a vector for viruses, bacteria, nematodes and cestodes. Over the years the market for insecticide use in small animals has become a major segment of the flea control chemical-pharmaceutical industry.Insecticides of the new generation should not only fight the existing infestation (therapy) but should also effectively prevent new infestations for weeks (prophylaxis). The latest class of chemicals developed to this effect are chloronicotinyls (syn. neonicotinoides). Imidacloprid is the first member of this class of insecticides with a high selectivity towards the site of action within an insect. Applied to the skin it combats flea infestation persistently. The flea control book describes the development of the compound from its discovery to its use in veterinary medicine.

Fleas and ticks: How to protect your dog

Your Pet's Health - What every Pet Owner Should Know

Author: Teresa Schahcinski

Article:
So you want to purchase a dog or cat. There is something you

should know before you take the leap. House pets are to be taken
care of like your very own children; it is natural that they
become part of the family. All animals have wants, needs and
health issues just like human beings. You really have to be
prepared because there are many things you need to care for your
pets in order to keep them happy and healthy. In regards to pet
health, you have to realize that it can be costly for
veterinarian visits, so you may want to consider pet health
insurance.

Health insurance for our pets is an option growing in
attractiveness to many owners of our canine and feline friends,
especially because most consider their pet a full-fledged family
member. More policies have been sold in the last year and a half
than in the last 20 years, with the average monthly cost being
between $9 and $25.

Some newer policies cover regular check-ups and routine care.
You may not consider this to be a benefit seeing that the
routine care that is covered usually costs less than the
insurance premiums. Economically, pet insurance that covers
unexpected, expensive health care costs make better sense. You
have to as yourself some pretty grave pet health questions. For
instance, if you had to pay out of your own pocket, would you
seek treatment of internal injuries from an accident? Would you
pay for needed cancer treatment or treatment for other diseases?
What if your dog has hip dysplasia? Odds are, your pet will
never need such care, but if he does, you might welcome the
coverage when faced with a $5,000 bill. Other pet health
questions to ask: Would I be able to afford a sequence of
treatments that might add up that high? Would I feel forced to
euthanize my pet if I could not come up with the money to pay?
To some it is not an option.

 Once you have considered these questions it will help you
decide if you are going to purchase pet insurance. Deciding to
purchase a health insurance policy for your pet may not be an
easy decision. In many cases, preexisting medical conditions are
typically excluded from coverage. Many companies that sell the
policies in the past have gone out of business leaving
policyholders hanging. If you decide to purchase a policy, make
sure you are familiar with the fine print explaining what is
covered and what is not. Gather all the information you can
before making a final decision. Also before purchasing a policy
make sure it is accepted by your local veterinarian or
veterinarians. Be sure to review what veterinary procedures and
supplies are covered. Pet health policies are similar to human
insurance policies; annual premiums, deductibles, and different
coverage plans based on what the owner chooses. Plans are based
on breeds, age, pre-existing conditions and in some cases,
lifestyle of the pet (i.e. indoor vs. outdoor cat).

Most companies start policies at age 6-8 weeks, some have no age
limit, and of the others I researched, one had a limit of 27
years, others had a limit of 8 years of age (if the animal was
insured when less than 8 years, coverage would continue beyond 8
years). The current overall average for annual deductibles is
around $100.00. The policy costs vary, depending on the animal
and the different packages that owners can choose. Some packages
are comprehensive, including such things as: annual checkups and
vaccinations, routine care, preventive medications (like
heartworm preventive supplements) and spay/neuter surgeries.
Other plans cover only accident and illness. Most plans offer
immediate coverage for accident claims, and 30 days for illness
claims on new policies. Additional pets are usually covered at a
reduced rate after the first policy-holding pet.

So you thought the hardest part to purchasing a pet was going to
be choosing the one you would take home! Well now you know that
being owning a pet has all the responsibilities of having a
baby. It is important that people understand before becoming pet
owners there is more to it than keeping their fur flea free,
purchasing treats and pet products, like collars and toys and
catering to the nutrition diet or diets of your puppies or
kittens. There can be serious ramifications if you take pet
ownership lightly.
