Many flea powder products are on the market today and in most cases the powders are safe to use on both cats and dogs but in some cases the flea powders may contain ingredients that may be harmful to your pet so you would need to check this first.

All the ingredients that are contained in the flea powder are usually listed on the side of the can.

The following ingredients that can be harmful to your pets are listed below:

  • Dichlorvos (DDVP, Vapona)

  • Chlorpyrifos (Dursban)

  • Carbaryl (Sevin)

  • Dioxathion (Delnav, Deltic)

  • Lindane

  • Malathion

  • Naled (DiBrom)

  • Phosmet (=Prolate, Kemolate)

  • Permethrin

  • Propxur (Sendran, Baygon)

  • Pyrethrins

  • Ronnel (=Korlan)

  • Tetrachlorvinphos (=Rabon)

It is quite easy to apply flea power to your pet if you have found a suitable product to use. Applying the powder needs to be carried out with caution as it will not be good for your pet if they ingest the power. The best way to try to do this is to brush the powder into your pets fur so it will minimize the amount of powder that can be ingested.

When you are applying the powder make sure you do so sparingly as this will reduce the amount of excess powder left for your pet to ingest. The best way to do this is to sprinkle the powder onto your pet's fur by brushing backwards with your hand or comb. You should sprinkle the powder if you can onto the base of the hairs concentrating on the belly, back and neck.

Once you have applied the powder it is advisable to put your pet out in the garden for a while so that any fleas can drop off and they will not be in your house. You may then wish to comb your pet to try and remove as many fleas as you can that are left behind. This treatment can be carried out as often as you feel necessary.

The other type of powder you could consider using that may be safer for your pet is Diatomaceous Earth (DE) which is a natural flea killer. This product is a natural product that is made up of crushed fossils of freshwater organisms. DE works by slicing through the coat of fleas and this will then cause dehydration which will then cause the fleas to die. DE will also kill larvae and eggs.
