How do You Get Rid of Fleas on a Dog?

To get rid of fleas on a dog, you must first deflea the dog’s environment. Spray the yard, and wash all bedding. Don’t forget to vacuum the carpet, and apply an insecticidal product to the carpet fibers. Finally, use a topical preparation on your dog, either a once per month solution or a spray, or give your dog an internal flea preparation such as Comfortis.
