Another way to check for fleas is to sit your pet on a white sheet or large piece of paper and to rub their back for a minute but you will need to be quite vigorous when you do it.

By doing this if your pet does have flea then any flea faeces will drop off your pet and onto the paper, you may need to also hold your pets tail. One you have done this you can allow your pet to go. Pick up the paper and remove all the pet hair and then transfer all the bits that are left on the paper onto some damp cotton wool, leave for about one minute.


As flea faeces are made of dry blood, they can sometimes become mixed up with them being dirt or dead skin. The cotton wool will allow the flea faeces to turn a lighter shade of red.

If the cotton wool contains red spots then this will confirm that your pet does have fleas and you will need to follow this with treatment to get rid of them.
