Best way to get rid of fleas on a puppy that's 3 months old? I've been bathing him but it's starting to dry out his skin from doing so

There is a new liquid monthly treatment for fleas and ticks out called Revolution. It protects against fleas, ticks AND heart worm and is very good. It can be used on puppies as small as 6 weeks. Also you will need to spray your home. I recommend Hot Shot Bed Bug and Flea. It is the safest and most effective treatment I have found with a fair price.

The most recommended way is to bathe the puppy in warm water and a dishwashing detergent before manually picking off the remaining fleas using a flee comb. You can also spray the animal using a mixture of; lavender oil, eucalyptus oil, warm water and cedar wood oil placed in a spray bottle or bathe the puppy using a puppy shampoo.

He should be old enough to use Advantage. It works really good and fast.

Use a good flea shampoo then get either Frontline or Advantage Flea and Tick medication. Dont use the cheaper brands as they either work poorly or not at all. You can get Frontline and Advantage from most veterinarians. You can get them at pet supply stores as well but they can cost almost twice as much.

Also I have sprayed out side around the house and sometimes in the house to kill fleas after I have treated to dogs.

Frontline you just put it on the back of their neck every two months and your dog should be good to go. That's what I have used for yrs. Walmart makes a product that is the same but alot cheaper.

But Brewer's Yeast powder at a health food store, and put some on the food.
The fleas do not like the taste of the puppy's blood and jump off.
Whoo Hoo!
