Canine Flea Control
Treatments
to KILL those nasty fleas
on your dog !


Selection of canine flea control treatments which help keep your dog flea free through out the year.


It's important to remember that every dog is an individual so what works on one dog may not work as well on another - so sometimes you may need to a try a couple different dog flea control treatments before you find the one that works best on your dog and home environment.

You may also need to not only treat your dog, but your home and your outside yard. Also don't forget to maintain regular canine flea control all year round, I put a little reminder on my calendar when its time to do my little doxie so she stays flea free.
