"Struggling With A Flea Infestation?" 3 Simple Steps To Eliminate Fleas

"I couldn''t believe that my home was taken over by blood sucking fleas. Luckily, I found a product that fixed all my flea problems."

Is your pet suffering from an itch they can''t seem to scratch? Are you starting to notice an itch all over your body? Is your home infested with fleas?

Many pet owners deal with a flea infestation at least once, but did you know that pets are not the only ones bringing in fleas? Fleas are not shy. They will ride on anything or anyone. Even you can bring in fleas from outside. Well, what I came across will eliminate fleas easily and effectively from your home, but before we go into that let''s begin with a little information.

Is it really a flea infestation you are dealing with?

1. Pet Excessively Scratching - Does one of your pets itch more than normal? A pet being itchy is usually the first sign, but not the only. Your pet may simply have a rash or dry skin from too much sun. Even really cold weather conditions will make them itchy.

2. Small Red Bumps - Pay attention to your ankles. Because one of the most common place for fleas is the carpet they get to your ankles first. So look for little red bumps there that will typically go away in a few days. If your children are on the floor they may have these bumps all over.

How do you get rid of fleas in your home?

Before you start make sure you have at least a few hours to complete all three steps. If you don''t rid your home, your yard, and your pets at the same time then your flea infestation will come back.

(1) Flea Free Pets

- Comb Your Pets - Use a flea comb to pull the fleas out your pets fur.

- Use Flea Powder - Evenly spread powder over your pet. This kills those flea eggs and larvae so they don''t grow up to multiply into another flea infestation.

(2) Getting Rid Of Fleas In The Home

- Take a antibacterial cleaner and clean the surfaces of your home. Make sure you get the counters, cabinets, tables, and floors. Fleas enjoy humid areas so clean the basement and garage floors too.

- Vacuum all areas of the home. When vacuuming get those dark corners with the vacuum attachment. These are some of a fleas favorite areas.

- After vacuuming sprinkly powder evenly over the carpet.

- To finish the home wash, dry, and then sprinkly powder over couch surfaces, and bedding.

(3) Flea Free Yard

- Take that same flea powder and evenly coat the lawn and concrete.

- Do this at the end of every spring to prevent any fleas from multipling.

Read all the labels and directions on any product before you begin to use anywhere in your home, on your pet, or in your yard. Before most products are not safe for pets, or children. Also keep in mind that products should not be spread over gardens especially food gardens.

My dog may have ringworm - taking her to the vet tomorrow. How can I treat areas in my house in the meantime? (Answers: 4) (Comments: 0)
I think it''s ringworm - no clue where she got it, but she''s going to the vet tomorrow for a diagnosis and treatment. I am wondering what I should do to treat areas in my home if it is ringworm. She does sleep on wall to wall carpeting and she''s allowed on my sofa (fabric). I will wash her bed in hot water and bleach, but wondering how to treat the carpet and sofa. If you''ve had a pet with ringworm, what did the lesions look like? Were they really scabby/scaly? Did your pet itch? Where were the lesions? All of my dog''s are on her back and she doesn''t seem bothered by them at all. Thanks!!

My Dog Keeps Licking Himself? (Answers: 5) (Comments: 0)
Oh..I must add that I have this spray... It''s Pro Pet: Itch Relief. Ive been using it on him,and it seems to work for a while.. Just for the record..he is a Shih-tzu My dog for the past two weeks has been constantly licking himself around his private area. And he can''t seem to stop. I know it is bothering him,because he keeps whineing at me,telling me something is wrong. I don''t believe he has a UTI I am thinking its more like he is inflamed around that area,because he had fleas from my mothers house,and I just got him onto some frontline plus. If this problem persists I will be taking him to the vets. But is there anything I can do in the mean time to give him some relief?? And has anyone else has this problem before?

My cat Oscar has scabs on back? (Answers: 2) (Comments: 0)
My Little One, Oscar, has scabs on his back. He is excessively licking himself and is very itchie. My mother''s dog had flaky scaly/scabs all over him. They oozed and were nasty. The vet couldn''t really tell if it was an allergy or an infection. He was treated with several antibiotics and pain medications. I am scared that Oscar might have them. I sprayed "Pro Pet Itch Relief" it is an hydrocortisone spray. It claims to promote healing of minor skin irritations. He also seems to be acting normal and active except for the excessive itching and licking. I also recently changed his food, but his older brother Oliver is not exhibiting any of these symptoms. The other brother and sister (George and Echo who are dogs) do not seem to have these scabs either. Both George and Echo played with my mom''s dog and they seem normal. My mom was here almost two months ago... What do you think? I am going to continue using the spray and watch his behavior. I am also going to call the vet. Thanks for your time, Sydney
