It’s summer, which means fleas are out and about in abundance but what are the best flea treatments for dogs? You know the drill when your dogs gets fleas: vacuuming, washing pet beds, getting the flea comb out, and, of course, applying flea treatment to your pet. The real question is how do you find the right solution? Dogs can have allergic reactions, or products may not be as advertised. We’ve have found 2 great flea treatments for your consideration.

Best Flea Treatment for Dogs #1 - Capstar tablets work great as a quick-relief flea poison. They are not, however, a preventative product. They only kill adult fleas, not eggs or larvae so additional treatment will need to be sought out. That being said, they can provide relief to your dog within four hours of administering, which can sometimes be necessary if your dog has a bad infestation. They are also an oral tablet that can easily be mixed into food so you won’t have to worry about greasy or oily spots being left in your dog’s fur. Capstar is safe for pregnant or lactating dogs, as well as puppies more than four weeks old.
