We’re animal lovers at Bob Martin and understand the special bond you have with your pet, and how important their health and happiness is to you.

Left untreated, fleas and worms can cause your pet discomfort and pain and they can also affect your family’s health by spreading rapidly into the home. The good news is that minor healthcare issues like fleas and worms are very common and easily treatable. The Bob Martin Clear range has every product you need to keep your pet happy and healthy.
Did you know that 95% of Fleas are found in the Home?
Just 5% of fleas are found on your pet – that means that a huge 95% are in the home. what’s more, because fleas can lay hundreds of eggs in their lifetime (which can grow to adult fleas in as little as 3 weeks), you can quickly have a problem on your hands. Flea eggs fall off your pet and land on your carpet and sofa, or anywhere your pet goes in the home. These eggs then hatch into larvae. Larvae don’t like the light so move to warm, moist dark environments like the skirting boards in your house, and then develop in a cocoon where they can wait for weeks, months or even years waiting for a dog or cat to jump on and feed.
How to notice Fleas:
• Your pet will scratch or bite persistently.
• Check your pet for fleas on the neck area, behind the ears, at base of the tail and fur on the tummy.
• You may notice tiny black specks of flea dirt (flea faeces) in your carpet or in your pet’s coat during grooming. Test if it is flea dirt; place your pet on some white paper, and then comb them with a flea comb. If your pet has fleas, black specks will drop from the coat onto the paper. If the black specks turn red (from the blood they contain) when squeezed on damp paper then you know this is flea dirt.
• Humans can build up immunity to flea saliva so when a flea bites human skin it may not become raised or irritated and as a result you may not realise straight away that your pet or home is infested.
