RICHARD AMBROSE: Meet Sid. He's a very handsome 4 year old pug. But he's got a problem. He's got fleas.
JONNY PHILLIPS: I'm sorry Sid. We're going to have to take a closer look.
RICHARD AMBROSE: Typically the species of flea found on dogs is in fact a cat's flea. How undignified! They may be revolting things to look at, but they obviously like each other, because in 1 month 25 fleas can easily multiply to a quarter of a million.
JONNY PHILLIPS: Did you know a flea can jump 150 times its own body length.
RICHARD AMBROSE: Really?
JONNY PHILLIPS: That's about 30 centimeters.
RICHARD AMBROSE: That's high.
JONNY PHILLIPS: Which equates to you jumping nearly 300 meters.
RICHARD AMBROSE: That would be fun. They can live 100 days on a dog.
JONNY PHILLIPS: Really?
RICHARD AMBROSE: Yeah.
JONNY PHILLIPS: Poor dog, I wonder how many bites that equates to?
RICHARD AMBROSE: I don't know. Poor thing.
JONNY PHILLIPS V/O: They feed on a diet of fresh warm blood and don't think it just has to be the animal variety. If they happen to jump ship, a passing human will do nicely.
