What can I do about fleas in our home and on our dogs?

Fleas and Prescription Flea Medications

One of the most persistent and pesky dog health issues is fleas. They simply seem to linger on forever, causing your dog and the entire household itchy misery. Fleas can create other problems, too, like skin irritation, and even the spread of tapeworms. Fleas are difficult to control, but there are many medications available, from shampoos to flea collars, and oral medications that help control fleas on the dog and in the home. Some are available over the counter, but the strongest medications are prescribed by your vet. Many dog health insurance policies cover flea and tick medications and prescriptions, so be sure to check with your company when you sign up for dog health insurance.
