How do I deal with fleas?

The first step is to contact your veterinarian to get recommendations for your specific pet since your veterinarian knows your pet's history and can provide you with expert advice on flea prevention and removal. Preventing fleas by using the recommended product(s) is much easier than dealing with fleas once an infestation has occurred . Start in the spring before fleas get a good foothold and be diligent through the warm months with whatever treatment is prescribed by your vet. Once infested you may have to use flea bombs, powders or other methods as your vet recommends. Remember, it's better to STOP the fleas before they get a foothold and it's more comfortable and healthy for your pet to be flea free.
