I hope you never really need this. It is a nightmare to get rid of fleas from a dog and your home. It often requires a professional cleaning company especially if you have carpet, drapes and upholstered furniture.

It's so much easier to use a monthly flea and tick preventive.

However, if you've taken in a rescue or abandoned dog or just gotten unlucky, here's a quick video from a veterinarian that shows what fleas look like and how to use the flea comb.

A nice comb to use is the Safari Flea Comb with a Double Row of Teeth It's ergonomic handle gives you a non-slip, comfortable grip and it can go through your dishwasher to be cleaned and sterilized.

Flea Comb

Note - this same manufacturer makes a single rowed Safari Flea Comb for Dogs with a wood handle. I actually like that handle better than the plastic one, but I wouldn't put wood through my dishwasher. The double rowed teeth comb does work much better however.

Keep a glass with hot water at hand and dip the comb in there periodically to clean it off as you're working on your dog.
