The Flea parasite feeds on blood and lives on and around a variety of animals including dogs, cats, humans, chickens and other mammals. This species Ctenocephalides felis is known as cat flea and is the most common. Despite the name this species infests both dogs and cats. A quirky gift for pet lovers, groomers and veterinary staff! Nearly 3000 different species of fleas have been identified, but this version is harmless.
