Getting rid of fleas is certainly a difficult task. Fleas are nasty little creatures that not only spread disease but can also live in your home, in your dog's bedding, and in your carpet and furniture. Washing your dog with the purpose of getting rid of fleas can also be difficult and potentially scary since most flea shampoos are filled with chemicals meant specifically to kill the fleas. If you'd like to get rid of your dog’s fleas, but in a more natural way, you can wash him with natural products that will help rid your dog's fur and skin of these nasty critters. Be sure after you have washed your dog with a natural based solution to rid fleas that you also do the same with his bedding and toys and various places within your home such as your carpet to rid those areas of fleas as well.
If your dog is nervous at all, he might be nervous about taking regular baths. He might be even more nervous about this more intense bathing. Your dog may also be a bit apprehensive about bathing if he has battled fleas long enough that his skin is affected. Dry, itchy skin can be disturbed and painful when washed with soap and water. To ease any of this tension, be gentle with your dog and be sure you are talking with him with a loving tone, so he understands this is good for him.
Fleas can not only be dangerous to your dog, they can be highly annoying as well. Don't let these little buggers ruin your dog's fun.

Is it ok to bathe Benji outside using water hose? What to I do with the towels after. I believe he has fleas. I’m not all over my legs and arms and forhead. We gave him prescribed flea meds bought s new bed bed he is still itchy? Help
Hi Cindy! Im sorry to hear that Benji had fleas. If you gave him flea medicine prescribed from your veterinarian you will want to check with the vet again to see if Benji can have additional flea prevention. Most flea medicines will kill all the fleas but sometimes your dog is still itchy from the bites. A bath in oatmeal shampoo may help soothe the skin. If it persists you should ask your vet to check for a flea allergy. He can be bathed outside if you wish, just make sure he is fully rinsed. Thanks and good luck! Paige
