Treating your dog or cat: Powders, sprays, shampoos and dips are your best
weapons. Be careful, though. Read and follow label instructions.
Veterinarians now have some effective new treatment options for your pet
including oral and topical medications.
Flea collars provide some control. However, some dogs may be allergic to them.
Treating the inside of your house: Thorough cleaning and vacuuming may do the
trick. However, it might also take sprays and foggers.
Treating the outside: Sprays and foggers. Chemicals for treating the house and
yard are available over-the-counter, as well as from veterinarians.
