Advantages of Dog Flea Medicine

Aug 12, 2008
If you have a dog you know how important flea medicine is for your animal. There are many types of flea treatment for pets that you can use. Most people use the products that are recommended to them by the vet. Some of the products that vets recommend are Advantage, Revolution and Frontline. However, these may not be the right ones for you to use with your dog, and with the dog fleas that bother them. The flea medicine that you choose should be something that you feel comfortable using.

Flea medicine is so effective that a few drops (3 to 5) on your dog or cat's back can work wonders and within minutes your pet will be prevented from being bitten by the fleas. Flea medicine works fast, is thoroughly reliable and easy to use. Besides, it is undemanding to both you and your pet.

What they can reasonably expect though, is long periods when there will be no fleas on their pet, interspersed with periods of treatments to eradicate them. A flea collar will help to keep fleas at bay but it won't completely eradicate them. This is why a flea collar is recommended but it should be used in conjunction with other treatments.

The natural flea treatment products that you will want to get are natural powders, shampoos, sprays and a flea brush. You will also want to look for a collar that will help to keep the fleas away.

Remember that some flea medications kill the flea while others work to interrupt the life cycle. Use whichever one works best for your situation or use both when in doubt. Start prevention treatments early, as to stop the fleas from spreading. The earlier you start the easier it will be to eliminate or stop an infestation. Buy a flea collar that will prevent eggs from hatching. If you find that your dog is scratching herself profusely, take action now before the situation gets out of control. Consider a liquid medicine if your dog has trouble with oral medications. You can mix this in their water if necessary.

Before vacuuming your floors you should sprinkle some powdered diatomaceous earth or powdered borax on the carpet. This will kill any dog fleas plus the eggs. You should leave it on your carpet for a couple of minutes and then vacuum. Be sure that your kids and dog are not around when you do this. Although these products are natural and non-toxic, it's advisable not to breathe them in. And don't forget that your kids and dogs are lower to the floor than you are.
