You love your dog, right; he’s a part of the family

You love your dog, right; he’s a part of the family. You probably have his puppy pictures in an album, or even proudly displayed alongside those of your kids. His welcome when you return from a long day’s work is the one thing that can lift your spirit. However, while you gladly share your home with your dog, your dog and fleas is not a part of the deal! Here are our top five tips to keep your dog, and say goodbye to fleas!

1. Bath Your Dog Regularly
Unless you like living with your dog and fleas, giving your dog a regular bath is an absolute must! Look for herbal anti flea shampoos, or other insecticidal preparations. Dog and fleas will soon be parted by regular bathing, and if you use a shampoo with built in conditioner, your dog will have a shiny, sleek coat too. Be warned though that excessive bathing may strip your dog’s coat of essential oils, and aggravate skin problems.

2. Dip Your Dog
One thing guaranteed to part dog and fleas is a dip. Usually, this comes in a concentrated form, which you mix with water, and simply pour over the dog. And fleas, and many other parasites, will be rushing for the exits faster than you can say, well, flea.

3. Flea Powder
Dog and fleas may seem like one of those combinations that just fit together, but if you’d rather not have the dog and fleas, flea powder could be a valuable weapon in your arsenal! Applied liberally to your pooch’s coat, his sleeping quarters, and his bedding, dog and fleas will soon be parted, leaving your canine compatriot, and yourself, much happier!

4. Sprays
Another useful tool to separate dog and fleas, sprays are available for the dog itself, and the area he sleep in. There are even sprays on the market that you can apply to your own home, to get rid of any stragglers that may still be clinging to your dog.

5. Collars and Spot On
Last but not least, to keep your dog and fleas separated, you will want to invest in a collar and or spot on treatments. These both have a preventative effect, and can be used between major baths, dip, powder and spray sessions to ensure that the fleas stay away.

So there you have it. Dog and fleas need not be synonymous. A little effort, and a regular bathing schedule, a few products, available off the shelf, and you’ll be flea free for good. Then again, there are plenty of pet grooming parlors out there, so if you’d rather not do the dirty work yourself, why not book your dog a pampering session in the doggy equivalent of a beauty salon?
All jokes aside though, dog and fleas should not be in the same space. Flea allergies, itching and tickling are no fun for your dog, and if the problem worsens, it won’t be for you either!
