thank you as ive tried everything as hes starching and biting himself till it beeds hes had flea tablets and been shampooed wth flea shampoo

wash your fur baby with dawn dish washing liquid, the original blue one. it kills fleas better than flea shampoos, and can be used on very young puppies since most flea shampoos are too harsh for puppies under 12 weeks old. also, if you have carpeting or area rugs, sprinkle baby powder onto your rugs and brush it in. let it set for a few hours, or over night and vacuum . repeat this process for several days in case the fleas have laid eggs.

Does brand of baby powder matter or does it have to be johnsons

RobertD368 (author)JessicaW1422017-12-31

use johnsons baby powders for the simple fact they are the best. some other powders can be gritty. johnsons is very powdery, for a lack of a better term.

i dont use dog shampoos on my dogs if i dont have to. the best thing for them is using dawn dish washing liquid, the original blue one. its not harmful to the fur babies, but dont get it in their eyes, as it would burn, but it does kill fleas. just wash in warm water and lather up and and wash well, then rinse well. the baby powders work well also. i have been using them for a few years.

For the yard, go to your local feed store and get cedar granules. Put them in a spreader and spread over your yard. You can do it by hand also.

I'm so sick of spending so much money of these so called flea killers
And hate the chemicals. Around the puppy and dogs and our grand kids I can't Waite to see if this works I might just own stock in baby powder lololol

Baby powder harm my mini pin for fleas

iamsunflower2011 (author)2016-01-03

I put baby powder on the dog on the couch on the bed lol. I even purchased a flea trap from Ace Hardare that has a night light and sticky paper. The fleas are attracted to the light but get stuck on the sticky paper. I have to change it every 30 days

I'm trying it and I'll let you know. I'm finding fleas everywhere. I can't take it anymore.

your welcome,also look at my other ways to kill them

Can i use it to my cat?

Do NOT use Baby Powder on cats!

Talcum powder, made from the mineral talc, is the primary ingredient in
baby powder, many adult topical powders and some pet grooming products.
If inhaled or swallowed, talcum powder can poison a cat. Meanwhile, some
studies link talcum powder and cancer.

Also,
If you use Borax Laundry Additive (NOT Boric Acid! Boric Acid is a
completely different chemical) to kill fleas in your carpeting, it is
advised to keep your cats away from it. Cats are highly sensitive to
powders they might breath in and also can get very sick or die. Do NOT
put Borax on your Cats or Dogs.
