Thread: Clegs and rabbit fleas

    Clegs and rabbit fleas

    Are these transmissible to dogs?
    Also are the anti flea spot ons for dogs protective against ticks and Clegs ? Any info or links appreciated.

    Cleggs will bite anything with blood in it. (the lesser clegg, Cleggus niccus is however, too feeble to bite) although I've not heard of dogs being bitten - I suspect thick coats prevent them. Rabbit fleaswill attach to ears, especially cat, but they don't stay on very long.
    There is no point in using a spot on for cleggs, they'll just be shaken off. Advantix and Activyl work for ticks as do some other products - best ask your vet for what works best around you. Rabbit fleas as they are on the ears get such a low amount of drug that they are rarely affected.
