Dog Flea Treatment & Tick Removal for Dogs | PetSmart
Hi Billie, check out my article on removing fleas for dogs, it has all the details.
my 2 dogs havnt got fleas that bad but they do have them and have had them now for about 5 weeks and they keep coming back, iv used strong hold from the vets and rip spray off the vet and iv bathed them inbetween with flea shampoo, what else can I use im at my wits end as my one dog has just had his eye removed because of lens luxation and he could do without the irritation of a flea as well as dealing with surgery as he has to wear a collar for 2 weeks he cant even scratch himself, any help would be much appreciated.
Hey Karen! Sorry to hear about the lingering flea problems, those are the worst! I usually use it once a week at the most as it does tend to remove a dogs natural oils after too many consecutive treatments over a short amount of time. Since you have a small dog, you can definitely give him a bath in it instead, that’s actually a great idea for those that have small pets. Good luck!

One of the best ways to check for fleas is rolling your dog over and looking at her belly, or his belly. That is usually where fleas go to first, the lower part of the belly. You want to look for little flecks of dirt, which look maybe like sand, black sand. You want to take some of those flecks of dirt; wet a paper towel, a white paper towel, and drop some of those flecks of dirt on that wet paper towel. If they turn a rust color or a blood color then you know your dog actually has fleas; and what that is, is called flea dirt.
So, if your dog has fleas, I believe that one of the best ways of dealing, and the most efficient way of dealing with flea protection as well as elimination is using products like these. Fibroguard is a great product, it actually works. There are a couple of others on the market. You want to go with maybe Frontline or Advantix, one of the two of them. You really should shake them up, you should not use the same product continuously, because it will stop working.
