I don't know for sure, but I bet it would! It also kills the lice eggs (or nits) too!

You mean infested? Festive is a whole different word.

And if your dog is infested with fleas then shampoo will not help. You need to get a good treatment like Advantage Multi to use once a month. Don't be cheap.

Try using rosemary tea or spray. If you can't find it in a store, make a tea by boiling fresh rosemary and let it steep.

When it cools off, you can either spray or dip your dog and it works as a repellent and calms their skin.

Try soaking a fabric dog collar (nylon etc) in the tea tree oil. Will need to be re-soaked every other week or so.

Which lice shampoo did you use? The fleas are horrid out here and everyone is having a hard time with them, we are in the country, and Advantage is not doing anything.

Tea oil is poisonous to dogs and cats. Even just breathing it can caused them to become very sick, so not a good idea

YES, and the Dollar General brand also has an all natural spray for kids that you spray on and wear it all day and rinse it off after 8 hours. This is a great option and it kills them just like the shampoos do without harsh chemicals and you can also get 2 large (approx 20 ounce) bottles for $8.00.

Very effective in obliterating all of them. I use it and I spray the inside of the doghouse as well

We use the Advantage for the largest dogs you can purchase on all of our pets no matter their size its blue I think and it's the only Advantage we find works. The lower doses for smaller animals are just a waste of money. ( When flea season is bad we treat twice 3 days apart for the first treatment but ONLY if they already have fleas)... If they do not have fleas before treating them during the Spring/Summer months its the usual one dose treatment monthly but only using the Advantage for larger dogs, we live in the country and have had nothing but success this way... I am not sure the Vet would recommend it being used twice 3 days apart but it works great and we only have to treat from May until November...

Will NIX (head lice shampoo) kill fleas?

Annmarie from Oneonta, NY

Answers:

Does NIX Kill Fleas?

Nix does contain pyrethrins which have been proven to kill fleas, ticks and lice. But if you are trying to rid your dog or cat of fleas Nix seems like a costly choice. It can also be very caustic if left on too long. "Natural Chemistry" available at pet stores is a natural flea killer that is safe enough to be used even on puppies and kittens. Works wonderfully. Just remember you need to treat all area of the home as well, or you may never rid yourself of this dreaded pest. I have also heard that 20 mule team Borax sprinkled to affected areas around your home, leave it to sit for a period of time then vacuum it up, helps as well. (10/04/2007)
