How to Prevent Fleas on Your Dog

If your dog has ever experienced a flea infestation, you know they can not only be difficult to get rid of, but can also cause your dog to experience extreme itching, discomfort, skin irritation and sores, as well as loss of fur. With the use of flea prevention products, protecting your dog from fleas helps keep your dog healthy and your home free of pesky fleas.

Use a monthly flea preventative

The best way to prevent fleas on your dog is to use a product formulated to help end the flea life cycle. For increased peace of mind, use a flea preventative every month to protect your dog against fleas.

Topical

Popular flea preventatives includes brands such as Revolution and K9 Advantix II as effective flea medications. As a budget-friendly alternative try Flea5X Plus for Dogs, made exclusively by 1-800-PetMeds.

Tablets

There are also oral flea prevention products that can be given to your dog without the potential mess of a topical.

Treat your home

Be sure to wash all bedding and linens, and vacuum and steam clean your carpets. Treat areas under and around baseboards and in moldings by using a room fogger or carpet spray to kill the fleas.

Spray your yard

If your dog likes to play outside, you should also spray your yard. Virbac Yard Spray prevents reinfestation in your dog by killing fleas and ticks in your yard.
