Use a spray bottle of 3/4 white vinigar and 1/4 water and spray the dog after he/she has had a bath.

Dawn soap is a gentle and effective way to safely rid your baby of fleas. Bathe them in this and they will be flea free!

I've heard ''Capstar'' is the best way! It's a tablet you give the pet and it starts working in a 30 minutes. You can watch the fleas die and fall off. Then I would recommend a flea comb to comb then entire pet out and make sure nothing is left behind.

You can use capstar for a couple days to make sure the issue is solved, but remember if the house and yard are not treated and clean extremely well the fleas will always come back. Good luck!

Dry Borax in the carpet. Leave for 2 weeks before vacuuming to eliminate eggs, larvae and adults. Bathe with bar soap 2 x. Leave lathered for 5 minutes. Outdoors use care who comes into yard. Flea kill for yard is natural if you have good freezes and do not re-infest with even 1 flea. Cedercide (10 pounds for 12something $ ) goes a long way when spread by hand. No poisons please. NO flea collars, Dry Borax is best about 2 to 2 and a half cups for average size carpeted room.

Use in their beds, the throw rugs and places where there are fleas and flea eggs. Borax is a natural product that will kill the boogers for better than a year. You don't want worms either. Inexpensive, natural Food Grade (important that it be "food grade") diatomacious earth. Garden and other DE has poisons in it. Internet EarthWorksHealth.com 1800228 5836. Easy - safe for intestinal worms. Heartworm must be treated by vet.
