How do I get rid of fleas in my house?

If your pet has a flea problem, ridding your animal of fleas is only a small part of the solution. In fact, your pet may only be carrying a small percentage of the fleas that are in their immediate environment. Before you give your pet a flea bath, it’s important to get rid of the fleas in your house first.

  • Vacuum thoroughly. Ensure you cover every square foot by vacuuming behind and underneath furniture.
  • Flea bomb your house with insecticide.
  • Treat your pet. You can apply topical treatments to your dog’s skin, or you can administer edible tablets that will do the job.

The availability of flea insecticides may vary by your location, and digestible tablets for your dog may be expensive. Contact your vet or speak to an associate at your local pet store for further information.
