Top 10 Ways To Prevent Fleas On Your Dog And From Your Home

Posted on September 26 2020

Whilst dogs can bring so much love and joy to a household, it’s important to know how to look after them, and in particular, how to avoid a pesky flea infestation.

Fleas are horrible little things that live on your four-legged friend, along with in your home, such as in the carpet and furniture. They might only be 1-2mm in size, but without suitable preventative measures, they can cause your dog to repeatedly itch, scratch and chew, which can lead to visible hair loss and irritated skin.

They are prevalent all year round, but late summer can be a peak time for them, so we’ve created a list of our top 10 suggestions on how to prevent fleas!

  • This goes without saying, but a clean home really can help to prevent fleas!
