Spotting Fleas with Your Labrador

There are many signs telling you that your dog has fleas. For one, if you spot one on your dog’s fur, it most likely is a sign that there are more hiding under their skin. If they have black dirt on the skin or underneath the fur, or if they have pink or red spots on the skin and/or belly. 

  1. Clean Your House Entirely – Cleaning up your entire house including carpets, bedding, blankets, and other surfaces is important to getting rid of fleas. Fleas can live in furniture for 100 days without attaching themselves to someone. Use hot water when washing sheets, blankets and other fabric. 
  2. Bravecto for Your Labrador – Providing your Labrador with the best protection against fleas and ticks is extremely important. WE RECOMMEND Bravecto for your Labrador. This treatment is given orally to dogs and lasts for three months. This is the best treatment against fleas and ticks. 
  3. Preventing Them from Living – There are plenty of natural ways to prevent fleas from living. Especially during quarantine, it can be tough to find products and get out to the store. You have the ability to make natural flea solutions from your home.

We DO NOT recommend collars or pour-on flea and tick treatment due to the possibility of contaminating you and your family. We believe Bravecto is the best treatment for flea and ticks.
