Four Ways to Prevent a Flea Infestation

Prevention is always the best medicine!


#1 Regularly groom and bathe your dog with a natural shampoo formulated for dogs. We like Happy Tails all natural, ec0-friendly, cruelty-free Comfy Dog Oatmeal Shampoo perfect for dogs with dry, itchy skin and allergies.


#2 Wash your dog’s bedding in hot, soapy water once a week. If your dog spends time on a blanket on the sofa, wash that too.


#3 Vacuum your home once a week (get into the corners too, and pay special attention to the areas  around your dog’s sleeping quarters.) Be sure to empty the canister and dispose of its contents. We like the amazing Dyson Dc51 Animal vacuum!


#4 Frequently use a fine-toothed flea comb on your dog. To check if your dog has fleas, pluck some of the hair and debris the comb has captured and press it between a dampened tissue. If the debris leaves red or rust coloured spots on the tissue, that’s flea dirt you have there which means your dog has fleas. If fleas are evident, check with your vet for the best flea solution for your dog.
