The Q&A Archives: Fleas

Question: Everytime we take our dog out to use the restroom, he comes back in with fleas. Is he getting it from the grass, if so how can I get rid of them without killing the lawn?

Answer: In many areas, fleas exist naturally outdoors and create an ongoing problem for pet owners. Your local county extension might have suggestions as to how to reduce the number of fleas in your yard, however it can be very difficult to eliminate them entirely. I would suggest you work with your veterinarian on finding the best way to protect your dog from fleas.
