How to get rid of those Dog Fleas?
When faced by Dog Fleas the best way to defeat them is to take action immediately.
Labradors are very attractive to fleas because of their warm coats and large blood supply. They are able to hide themselves and remain in small areas for a long period of time. If you find that your Labrador has fleas be prepared to tackle the problem for a while.
When a dog has fleas they can be highly irritating causing an extremely high amount of itching. The skin, will no doubt, suffer and this can cause even more serious problems. A high amount of blood loss can be very dangerous. Dogs can suffer from anaemia if they lose too much blood.
There are many products available on the internet and in your local pet shop that will help you to tackle fleas.
If your dog has fleas read the following information carefully.
Being the proud owner of a black labrador myself I can safely say that through my experience the one product that I has proved its worth is Frontline Plus. This product is fantastic as it really does work. Use it every month and you should not have to worry about fleas anymore.
When you take your dog out chances are there will be fleas close by. It really doesn’t matter where you go, the garden, the park, even on the streets. Grooming your dog on a regular basis is a very good idea. Use a flea brush. A brush of this description makes life very hard for fleas. They will not be able to hide from it.
There is also the option of bathing your dog. Labradors only need bathing when they start to smell, this is a great opportunity to use a flea repellent shampoo. Reading the label is very important as the shampoo may be specific to certain breeds or circumstances.
Once again use that flea brush, its great for getting rid of those pesky little dog fleas!
In really extreme cases where you feel that you can not do anymore you should seriously consider cleaning the areas where your labrador is living. The source of the problem could be closer than you think!
