Why waste your money on expensive flea treatments when the ideal product could be in your kitchen cupboard!

Why not give your dog a good old bath and shampoo make him/her feel loved and pampered. By using a mild shampoo you will get rid of some pesky fleas. Follow this up by drying you dog thoroughly using a towel or if you are in a hurry try using a hair dryer. Fleas do not like hair dryers so this will help fend off a few more unwanted fleas.

After your dogs coat is thoroughly dry comb your dog with a flea comb to remove any fleas that may still be hiding in your dog's coat. If you do remove any remaining fleas then put them straight into a bowl of soapy water and tip down the sink or flush down the toilet.
