Getting Rid of Fleas?

For the past few days I have been sitting on my couch picking fleas off my puppy putting them in a cup of water then washing them down the drain. I can't use any of the flea combs because her hair is too short. This is especially true during the summer because she has her summer coat on. I am just wondering if there is a better way to take them off. She is a Chihuahua and too small for any treatments. Any suggestions?

Natural way is bathing your dag in warm salt water. Steeping rosemary and adding it to the warm bath of salts will help keep fleas off the pet. I read this somewhere, when I had a dog it worked great. I never wanted to use the chemicals on her. Try this, worked for me.

If they are where your pet sleeps,put lavender oil on cotton balls or on bedding. Tea tree oil works ,too. Just dampen the area with these oils, flees cant stand the smell is what I thought. Either way it works!

Dry 20 Mule Team Borax (2 to 2 and 1/2 cups per average carpeted room), I put it in a sifter or veggie drainer and spread over carpet, dog bed, couch etc. Leave for 2 weeks and vacuum. 2 weeks to complete life cycle of egg - larvae - and adult. Good reports although I have not tried is rock salt in the yard.
