Subject: just a reminder that fleas aren't just an inconvenience

A 1.5 y/o ferret came into the clinic where I work
last night covered in fleas. He was very anemic, and
he died this morning with the fleas being his only
obvious problem. The poor thing was literally covered
with fleas and flea bites. I couldn't find any
healthy-looking skin.

Sad, isn't it, that in this day and age a pet can die
of fleas when there are so many easy-to-apply products
that kill fleas?
