How To Get Rid of Fleas
If you catch the problem early enough, there are several actions you can take to prevent or get rid of fleas on dogs or cats. Here are our prevention tips for a flea-free home:
- Clean and vacuum carpets, furnishings, cracks in the floorboards, and upholstered furniture. This will remove adult fleas, and their eggs and larvae. Larvae feed on adult flea feces and other organic matter, which can collect in carpets and rugs. Removing this source of food is an important step.
- Empty your vacuum cleaner very carefully and away from your house as fleas may still be alive inside the vacuum bag.
- Groom your pets regularly with a flea comb and wash their beds every week. Using the hot water cycle on your washing machine will help to eliminate fleas.
- If your dog or cat is scratching or biting its fur, talk to your vet. They can recommend the best flea sprays or powders to use to treat your pet.
