Best Flea Treatment for Fleas on Dogs

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

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. 

Signs of Fleas on Dogs

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. 

Dog Flea Treatment

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.

  • Shampoos: Bathing dogs with any soap or detergent will drown fleas and will dry out any surviving fleas. Using a soap formulated for flea control will contain a pesticide, which will increase the effectiveness but you must read all directions to keep you and your dog safe. These shampoos do not have a lasting flea-killing effect and will only kill fleas present when used.
  • Dusts: Dusts commonly contain some type of pesticide, but others like diatomaceous earth, are natural. However, dusts can become airborne and ingested by your pet, so use caution when applying these products to your dog. Dusts can maintain dog flea-killing power for a few days to a few weeks, depending on the product.
  • Combs: Flea combs are great for prevention. Using a flea comb once a week can not only keep you on the lookout or fleas but also remove any fleas or ticks that might be present.
  • Topical treatments: Topical treatments have gained popularity and many people choose these products because of their ease of use and high rate of effectiveness. These include products like Advantage (imidacloprid) and Frontline (fipronil). You can get these products from your veterinarian, and you can also find generic versions of these on this page.
  • IGRs: Insect growth regulators are a large part of flea control for both pets and homes. IGRs stop insects from reaching their reproduction stage and break the life cycle. These products do take a while to completely get rid of fleas, but they are very effective as both pet and home treatments.
