Even a trip to the lake may not stop fleas

A trip to the lake won't be enough to wash away any fleas that are bothering your dog.

According to Flea Science, any bugs that are hiding in your dog's fur won't enjoy a trip to the lake, but may be able to survive getting wet. It can take up to 24 hours for fleas to drown, meaning even if your pooch spends a good amount of time swimming, any biting insects may still survive being completely submerged in water. To make matters worse, a trip to the lake can actually put your dog in contact with ticks and other bugs that may be hiding out in the grasses or brush by the water's edge.
