How to Get Rid of Your Dog's Fleas Without Upsetting Your Canine Companion

The dreaded flea and anyone who has or does own a dog knows just how awful these creatures are. Not only when magnified do they look like some reject from the dinosaur ages but they will transmit different diseases and can even cause tapeworms in your dogs. So it's important that in order to keep your dog healthy that you are able to keep your dog free from fleas. Realize that some dog breeds can even be highly allergic to fleas as well. Because these creatures prefer warm and more humid climates, you will see an increase in them in parts of the country during the different seasons than other seasons. Below are a few ways that you can rid your dog of his fleas.

Of course the best way to fight fleas is to try and prevent them becoming a problem in the first place. You should check your dog often for signs of fleas and use a medication that your vet recommends to prevent them.

To keep the fleas from being indoors, it's a good idea that you vacuum your house really well and do it quite often, especially during the warmer months of the year. Make sure to pay close attention to places like the corners and crevices of places like a basement. Make sure that you throw the vacuum bag outside in the trash and not in the trash can in your kitchen, because the fleas can escape. Try and avoid other dogs that might have fleas. Even though taking your dog to a dog park is a lot of fun, it's probably wise to keep your dog away from other dogs you don't know.

You should purchase a special flea comb that is especially made to help you remove fleas from your dog. When you are combing your dog make sure that you have a bowl of water with soap in it and then drop the fleas from the comb into the water with soap so that the fleas will drown.

Make sure that if your dog has his own bedding that you make sure that you wash it in hot water on a weekly basis because this is going to be a good place for the fleas to lay their eggs and you want to get rid of those so that their reproduction cycle can be destroyed. You should also make sure that you give your dog a bath every week to help rid them of fleas as well.

You should keep a close eye on your dog for signs of flea trouble. Those signs would be overly scratching and biting themselves especially near the lower back and around the area of their tail. Also look for any patches that appear to be raw. Also look for any black looking debris which is dried blood left behind by the fleas.

If the problem is too difficult for you to control then you need to call your vet to get advice on the different kinds of treatments that might be available. There are monthly flea adulticides that can be applied, there are pills that kill the eggs but not the fleas, but it does keep them from reproducing and a variety of other things that your vet will be able to recommend for your dog and his flea problem.

You can also by flea treatments that you can spray or place around your home as well that will help control them and keep them from reproducing in your home. Whatever you do, don't let the problem go unattended.
