Fleas on dogs are one of the hottest concerns of the dog-owners as almost all dog breeds have hair on their body which are highly prone to fleas and ticks. There are many remedies and treatments in the market to kill fleas on dogs but on the parallel track there are some myths and tales about dogs’ fleas too. One of such myths is that the monkeys can pick the fleas on dogs which can help dogs get rid of fleas. Some people say that the fleas either in human beings or dogs can be prevented if a monkey is assigned the task of picking fleas and ticks from the hair. The people go to the extent that the animal affected with fleas never falls a prey to fleas again in its life. These are merely here-says having no reality in them as the process of catching fleas is a matter of hygiene. It can occur again and can be remedied as well.
