At this point I don’t think you need to do anything on your dog. Based on the attention you’re giving him, he should be fine. But he will no doubt continue to pick up fleas from either your home or the outside until you get these areas under control. And that means you need to treat them as explained in our FLEA CONTROL article.

For the home, I suggest the ONCE A YEAR FLEA TREATMENT. It’s easy, odorless, very safe and highly effective. Set out some FLEA TRAPS too.

First Defense:

Flea Trap:

Outside the home, get some BIFEN GRANULES applied and spray over the top with some CYONARA RTS.

Cyonara RTS:

As our article explains, there are so many places where fleas can come from that if you don’t address these sites by treating them, he’ll keep picking up rogue fleas seeking food all summer long.
