Dog Flea Shampoos, Dips & Sprays
Dog shampoos, dips, and sprays provide varying amounts of flea protection and control. Dog flea and tick shampoo provides instant relief and is best used if your dog has a large number of fleas or ticks visible on his body. Shampoos do not leave residual chemicals once your dog is done with his bath. Flea sprays offer 2-3 day protection and can be effective on ticks and mites, as well. Flea dips contain extremely strong chemicals, and the effects can last 1-2 weeks. Dips will work to get rid of mites and ticks, as well as fleas. Follow manufacturer directions carefully with any flea product.
