Dog Fleas - The helpful hints that can help treat your pet


Did you know.... Flea pesticides are more hazardous than most people think?

 


  • You can stop flea problems without using pesticides. 
  • Fleas have been called "the bane of every dog and cat owner." If you feel that way, here are some common sense ways of getting flea problems under control: 
  • Wash your pet's bedding regularly. It's a common place for flea eggs to develop and hatch. 
  • Flea comb your pet as often as necessary. 
  • Try a flea trap. Studies have found they catch between 10 and 95 percent of the fleas in a room. 
  • Vacuum often. Vacuuming can remove over 95 percent of the fleas in an area. 
  • If your pet brings fleas in from outdoors, consider using flea-eating nematodes (tiny worms) in areas where your pet spends lots of time.
            
           

     


     Here are some of the problems caused by insecticides commonly used on pets:

     

  •  Imidacloprid (often sold as Advantage) is toxic to animal nervous systems, causes damage to DNA (the genetic material in living cells), and increased pregnancy loss (miscarriage) in laboratory tests. 
  • Fipronil (often sold as Frontline) disrupts hormone function, is classified fipronil as a carcinogen (a chemical that can cause cancer), and lingers on pets for about two months.

 

Flea Combs

A flea comb is a good pesticide-free method of removing fleas from your dog or cat. A flea comb works by catching the fleas in the very narrow gaps between the teeth or forcing them to jump off. Use a flea comb outside, and keep a container of soapy water nearby for drowning the fleas, or comb your pet in a bathtub where you can rinse the fleas down the drain. Start by running the comb gently through your pet's coat. After each run through, dunk the comb in the water and leave any fur caught in the comb in the water. The soapy water will kill the fleas. Continue this procedure until the entire pet has been combed, making sure to comb their underside. A flea comb can be used every day when fleas are bad, and can help prevent fleas entering the house if used before the pet comes inside
