Fleas are attracted to motion and can hitch a ride into the home by a dog, cat, or a human.  Even indoor cats frequently contract a growing number of fleas from one flea that is accidently brought in the home by a human family member.  One flea will lay 40 eggs daily.

Our goal is to teach you what you need to know to help your pet. As much as we wish we could include your pet in our free help sessions, they are for humans only, so please leave all those sweet and wonderful pets at home.

These Help Sessions are free to the public on a first come, first seated basis. Please be aware that Animal Hospital of North Asheville will be seeing patients while the Help Session is in progress, so some of our parking will be reserved for the families of patients needing care. Thank you for understanding.
