A Quick Guide to Fleas and Treatments
We all have pet; a dog, cat or rabbit. If the flea season is not well prepared for by control and prevention method, our pretty pet could be in danger, they could even die. But it would be better if you had prevented the flea from your compound instead of treating them. You need to be able to get rid of them way before they start flying or increase in population.
You just soak your pet in warm water then rub the flea and tick shampoo into its fur, let the shampoo sit on your dog’s fur for ten to fifteen minutes before rinsing with warm water again. Purchase the flea powder, using a brush apply it all over your dogs’ body; from head to the tail. A flea spray is another way of flea treatment for dogs.
Once you notice that flea infestation has started you get your dip ready and soak your dog in that medicated solution, once the dog is fully soaked, do not rinse it away, this means you leave your pet in a well ventilated area for sometime. this is why there is a collar you can use to kill these fleas or repel them completely.

One of them is combing your dog with a flea comb. Soap traps and lifts fleas up, it also disrupts their cell membrane and removes their protective waxes, thus killing them. All you need to do is to dilute lemon in a dish, use a comb or a brush to apply it around the dog’s body.
For lavender oil, you just need a few drops and you good to go.Additionally, you can also spray the apple cider vinegar. Chances are any flea that land on it will just die, fleas don’t like the smell of rosemary.
The veterinarian determines the best dosage depending on the dogs’ weight and age. Again, ensure the area where your dog sleeps is tidy and clean, spray it occasionally. The ultimate reason for treating these fleas from your dog is because when a flea bites a dog it cause an allergy, anemia (when flea suck all its blood) and there is a risk of being infected with worms, such as tapeworms.
