Q:

What do dog fleas hate?

A:

Dog fleas hate any number of treatments that prevent infestations on pets including those from K9 Advantix, Frontline Plus, Seresto and Advantage II products. Other methods and products are also available for flea control to keep pets safe from uncomfortable infestations.

Some flea and tick remedies are topical treatments, some are oral treatments and others include items such as collars. Topical and oral treatments for fleas and ticks generally use recommended dosages dependent on the size of the pet.

Female fleas lay eggs when temperatures fall between 65 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Dog fleas are either the species C Canis or the species Ctenocephalides.

    How do you get rid of sand fleas?

    A:

    Getting rid of sand fleas outside is nearly impossible because they bury themselves in sand. Infestations in homes should be handled by professionals, who are likely to use bug bombs that release toxic gases to kill the fleas. However, sand flea infestations in the home are rare because the crustaceans prefer to live near large bodies of water. Also, sand fleas don't travel very far from where they are born.

  • Q:

    Why is my dog scratching if he has no fleas?

    A:

    The primary reason dogs scratch when they do not have fleas is allergies. Some pets are allergic to environmental factors, while others suffer from allergies to their food, according to the ASPCA. Dogs that scratch continually due to allergies sometimes develop secondary infections from yeast or bacteria, which cause the scratching to increase.
