Grass fleas are attacking all indiscriminately – and to dogs and cats, and rabbits, and on human beings, while permanent fleas often (but not always!) are selective, being largely species-specific (cat fleas, dog fleas, fleas rabbits, etc.)
Persistent fleas, as a rule, greatly inferior in jumping ability as its “herbal” relatives, and their infection occurs mainly through contact with sick animals. At the same time, to herbal pick up fleas almost anywhere, and even if the animal is not facing the street, it is still at risk, as fleas can be brought into the home on shoes and clothing.

Common clinical analysis of blood (blood EYE)
Held almost always. This is the most common type of research. This analysis is necessary for animals with fever, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and before surgery. Provides an opportunity to assess amount of formed elements of blood (erythrocytes, leukocytes, and platelets). This, in turn, allows to detect anemia, infection, disorders of blood clotting, the immune response of the body.
Biochemical studies of blood of animals
When need to figure out how to work the internal organs,when examining an elderly patient, or for preparation to surgery, using biochemical analysis of blood. The study of blood serum provides an opportunity to assess the activity of certain enzymes in the body, thereby, giving Continue reading
