Hello!

To get rid of fleas, you can try removing them with an apple vinegar solution, but only if your dog doesn't have wounds on the skin or severe rash.

Heat one liter of water to about 38 degrees and put three spoon of apple vinegar. Take a sponge and wash your dog with this solution. Please, be careful with the dog´s eyes.

After washing your dog, let the dog´s hair dry naturally. Then, brush the hair with a special comb for removing the dead fleas.
Use this solution only if your dog doesn't have wounds and irritated skin caused by fleas. Otherwise, the vinegar will cause him pain.

What is important is to end with flea plague in your house by vacuuming the carpet and washing it in the washing machine at over 60°C (140°F) for at least 1 hour. Once dry, spray with Frontline spray.

Once completely eliminated, remember to deworm your dog internally and externally every 3 months as a prevention.
