Common problem: FLEAS

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs


Fleas are a constant and irritating problem both, for the dog and the owner. They  cause extreme irritation and discomfort  to the dog so they should be removed immediately. They are also a source of Tapeworm.

However, it is heartening to know that even though humans may suffer a bite from them, but that is only passing as fleas do not live on human body.


1. The dog should be bathed with a shampoo containing selenium, (Selsun is a brand available with chemists, containing selenium) every three days for at least two weeks.

2.On days when the dog is not being bathed, powder it thoroughly with derris powder (also available with chemists and most pet shops).

3. During flea season, which varies with location, the dog should wear a flea collar(available at pet shops).

4 Baths and powdering should be supplemented with aerosol sprays, which kill fleas on contact. The bed and living area should be dusted with liberal amount of flea powder.

5. I personally use Mediker oil mixed with coconut oil and then rub it on the dog's body . The dog is bathed after two hours . Before bathing, the coat is brushed thoroughly so that dead fleas are removed. This has proved very effective.
