Dog Flea Shampoos and Dips
Flea shampoos clean your dog's coat safely and effectively treat and prevent flea infestations as well as ticks. Puppy formulas are best for pups under 6 months, and oatmeal shampoos and other coat conditioning formulas are best for dogs with skin allergies. Natural flea control shampoos are available using essential oils and other botanical blends to fight pests and soothe the skin. Another solution for your dog is a flea dip, which is a concentrated solution that often contains Pyrethrins. Pyrethrins are derived from natural insecticides found in chrysanthemum flowers that are safe for pets and are deadly to insects. They are also found in some conventional flea shampoos. Medicated grooming wipes are also available that use natural ingredients to fight fleas and ticks. After bathing, you can apply a soothing anti-itch treatment or a natural flea repellent. A topical spot-on flea treatment may also be used instead after bathing. At PetSmart, find flea and tick dips and shampoos for dogs to protect your pet from biting pests.
