Best Way to Remove Fleas
Posted on September 26 2018
Dog can get fleas from anywhere or anyone. That time you went to the dog park and came back there it is was a pesky flea on your dog.
Here is what I like to do when removing fleas from a dog.
First you need to gather your supplies:
- Dawn Dish Soap (Best to stick with Dawn as others are usually diluted and do not work)
- An Oatmeal & Aloe Dog Shampoo
- A Flea and Tick Dog Shampoo
- and lastly a Flea Comb
Once your ready simply take Dawn and pour it from their neck to their tail bone while they are dry. (Do not get them wet yet as you will dilute the Dawn.) Rub the Dawn in with your hands and take some water onto your hand massage it in.
Next you will rinse off your dog and then grab your flea comb and look for the remaining that did not come off with the rinse.
Once you do that you need to do another wash this time with the Flea and Tick Dog Shampoo. (This is to prevent any Flea Eggs from hatching) Do the same with the Dawn and pour it from their neck to their tail bone. Massage it into every little spot. Now rinse off your dog.
This step is optional but its good to do. Now using your favorite Oatmeal & Aloe dog shampoo give them a third wash. (Reason for this, is because the Dawn will dry their skin out and they will start to itch)
This is a good trick if your dog comes into contact with Fleas. If you have trouble with Fleas in your home remove the Fleas first from the home and then do this step.
