How can you tell if your dog is suffering from fleas? You have to check its presence to know when and how to treat your pet.
There are some definite ways to detect if you have a flea problem. Is your pet dog scratching and itching excessively? Is it biting or chewing on his skin, especially near the tail area and inside his thigh area? Are there red, raised bumps on its skin and stomach area?
If you have answered "yes" to any or all of these questions, chances are poor Fido is suffering from fleas? And as the responsible pet parent you are, you know you need to spend some time killing those fleas. However, you are not sure the best techniques to undergo to nuke those irritating fleas
The best and absolute safest way to protect your beloved dog is through natural flea elimination. The most proven safest way and what we genuinely recommend is to kill the fleas naturally. If you ever read a label to a chemical-based flea treatment you will read statements such as, "Avoid contact with eyes, skin or clothing." While these products may be effective at killing fleas, what are their effects on your dog's health as well as yourself and your family's health?
The chemicals used in common flea and tick control products are highly toxic to both canine and human health. We strongly recommend before you reach for those harmful pesticide to first try the following tips for naturally eliminating fleas from your home, yard and dog. Clean Your Dog's Bedding
One of the best ways to combat the flea problem naturally is to wash all animal bedding frequently. Fleas are reported to lay up to 60 eggs per day, so the more you wash your dog's bedding area, the better. We recommend washing the dog's bedding at least once a week.
When washing and drying your beloved pet dogs bedding, use the hot water temperature setting on your washing machine and set the dryer to hot as well. You may also place borax powder in your washing machine detergent. Borax is a very effective and common natural remedy for fleas. Depending on the size of your dog and the size of his bedding, you may not be able to fit the bedding in the washing machine. If this is the case, take the bedding outside and hose it down with a garden hose and soap. Fleas will drown in the water and they cannot breathe in soapy water. So no matter what method you use to clean your dogs bed, you are sure to kill some or most of the fleas hanging out in that particular area.
