Dog owners know that the treat of fleas is always right around the corner. Since dogs are such social animals, they come in contact with many dogs on a regular basis, raising the chances that your dog will catch fleas. Flea control in general can cause headaches and stress, but knowing how to approach flea control for dogs can ease this complicated and often drawn-out problem.
WARNING: All product labels should be read before applying flea treatment products directly on dogs. Some products are dangerous to use on puppies that are younger than 8 weeks, and some products require the puppy to be at least 12 weeks old before applying.

Fleas on dogs can range from a minor nuisance to a severe problem; it just depends on the dog. Dog fleas, or ctenocephalides canis, infect cats and dogs, as well as humans, but dogs are most often infested with cat fleas (ctenocephalides felis). Puppies, elderly dogs, and certain others can have severe reactions, like parasitic anemia. Your dog could also have a flea allergy, which leads to intense itching, hair loss, and skin infections.
Dogs may display certain signs when infested with fleas. Excessive scratching, licking, or biting of skin, hair loss, scabs, and even tapeworms can be signs of a flea infestation. Check for droppings or “flea dirt” in the dog’s coat, eggs in on the dog or in dog’s environment by using a flea comb. The flea comb can also remove many of the fleas on your dog’s coat.
There are many products on the market formulated for flea control. It can be confusing to sift through the different methods. Here is a list of commonly used products and their characteristics.
