How to Keep Fleas Off Your Pets and Out of Your Home

Any pet owner knows the importance of keeping fleas away from your dog, cat, or other furry friend. There are many methods that you can use to keep fleas away to ensure the health of your pets and the comfort of your living space.

Flea Medicine

There are many types of flea medicine available to help keep these pests away from your pets. There are both over-the-counter and prescription options, and medications come in many forms. You can feed your pet a pill or use ointments that are applied directly to the skin. You should ask your veterinarian about which type of flea medicine is best for your pet.

As a bonus, many flea medications also prevent ticks and other pests.

Flea Shampoo & Baths

You can incorporate flea prevention into your pet’s regular hygiene routine by using a flea shampoo. Flea shampoo not only prevents pests from biting your pet but can also clean their skin and condition their fur.

General cleanliness is effective for flea prevention as well. Even if you utilize flea medication or another method of prevention, you should give your pets regular baths. This is especially true for animals that spend time both inside and outside, or pets that interact with other animals. For example, you should give your dog a bath after visiting a dog park.

Other Methods

If flea medications or flea shampoo don’t work for you and your pet, there are other flea prevention methods available. Flea collars are an easy way to keep pests away from your cat or dog — by just putting a collar on your pet, you are keeping them safe and healthy. Your vet may be able to recommend other alternative methods of flea prevention.
