Scratch Out Fleas: Protecting your dog

What is the best way to protect against fleas?

It is important to treat your dog all year around, especially if you live in a more temperate climate. This can be done with flea shampoo, sprays, and also with the monthly topical treatment.

There are a variety of pet stores, as well as online stores that sell flea treatments. Pet Edge carries many flea treatments at a very affordable price. They have shampoos, sprays, and topical treatment. You can get a 3 month supply of topical treatment for only $1.99. So, there is no excuse to make your pal itch.

Topical treatments

What if my dog has extra sensitive skin?
There are some flea treatments formulated for sensitive skin. Hartz makes an ADVANCED CARE 2 in 1 Flea & Tick Shampoo with Oatmeal that kills fleas and ticks while helping to sooth and relieve dry, itchy or irritated skin with a fresh herbal fragrance. This product was developed with encapsulated Oat Extract to provide soothing relief to itchy problem skin.

There are other dog shampoos and sprays on the market made for sensitive skin. Additionally, you may want to try the topical treatment, since it is concentrated to one area.
