Which Type of Dawn?

I read the thread about using Dawn for washing the dogs to get rid of fleas. This is kind of a silly question but does it matter which kind of Dawn you use. I have the antibacterial apple. Is this ok?



Which Type of Dawn?

Hey, I have a dog too. I don't usually use soap much because it can irritate the skin on dogs. Don't use anything too harsh, because it can take away there natural body oils. I suggest getting a medication for him, or talking to a vet before using Dawn on him at all.

When we were trying to deflea kittens too young for Advantage, the vet told us to use regular Dawn, not the antibacterial kind or other scent, just the regular blue Dawn. I don't know what the difference is, but she did specify that it be the original one, not the antibacterial kind. Unfortunately, until they were old enough for us to use Advantage, nothing got rid of the fleas completely. However, it did cut down some on the population :0)

Lemon Dawn is what you should use.I have several dogs and use it all the time. You should only bath them once a month

It would be better for the dog if you bathed him/her with dog shampoo and then spritzed with peppermint or lavender oil, which help repel fleas and ticks.

Which Type of Dawn?

I use Advantage as my dogs cannot take harsh drying soap.

Do NOT use Hartz anything. The EPA has ordered them to stop producing the product as it has killed so many companion pets.

I gave, and still give, my dog the soft gel garlic pills daily. She thinks they are a treat and we have never seen another flea.
