The best way to find out if your dog has fleas is to look for symptoms of flea bites on dogs.
Hi Natasha. My name is Brenda. I have two small dogs. One is 3.8 lbs and the other is approximately 8 lbs. Do I need to be concerned about the smallest dog, or both for that matter, if using a spray and/or bomb that contain the IGR? As for the yard, we have now had a hard freeze. Is it true that will kill the fleas in the yard? I’ve never had a flea problem and it is extremely frustrating! Thank you in advance for your help!!
I have one yorkie & 2 other dogs basically inside dogs. Had yorkie for 12 years now, once a year have flea issues but frontline or and capstar always always took care of the problem. Past two months i have use frontline plus, dawn baths flea spray on all 3 dogs. They still biting leaving big red pluse score bites still all over my yorkie. Went this week to vet they say bad strain of fleas this year & recommended a pill called comfortis …..supposed to be the best on the market now. Well today had about 10 fresh red bites on my yorkie…they are not going away never seen fleas like these before, they are huge. I guess time to wait for winter to strike to kill these awful pests…good luck everyone!

Fleas are a pretty common problem for both cats and dogs. When the weather starts warming up, fleas can run rampant in your yard and bite your pet. Bravecto is the first oral chew for dogs to provide up to 12 weeks of protection against fleas and ticks. One chew provides broad-spectrum and long-lasting protection that starts to kill fleas within 2 hours and controls 4 tick species: black-legged tick (a.k.a. deer tick), American dog tick, brown dog tick, and lone star tick. Bravecto eliminates current flea infestations and prevents new ones from developing for 12 weeks. With one chew, Bravecto is easier to give and less to worry about for you! Bravecto requires a prescription from your veterinarian. Fleas are blood-sucking parasites, which means your pet can become anemic from biting fleas. Symptoms like pale gums, lethargy and/or low body temp could be a sign on anemia. Anemia is especially concerning for puppies or sickly dogs, and if it's not caught soon enough, it can lead to other medical complications and even death. In order to help your pet with anemia, you must stop fleas from biting your pet immediately. Also, make sure your pet is getting the right nutrients by giving him or her daily .After giving your dog Bravecto, the medication quickly reaches tissue fluids under your dog's skin. When fleas and ticks feed on your dog, they ingest Bravecto and die. Bravecto kills fleas, prevents flea infestations and kills ticks (black-legged tick (a.k.a. deer tick), American dog tick, and brown dog tick) for 12 weeks. Bravecto also kills lone star ticks for 8 weeks.
