How to get rid of fleas, for good

If your pet has fleas, your main concern is probably getting them off of it.

If your pet has fleas, your main concern is probably getting them off of it. Unfortunately, the pests on your pup are only part of the problem. In fact, only five percent of a flea infestation is made up of the adult fleas in your pet's fur, according to the Mt. Pleasant Animal Hospital. The other 95 percent of the infestation is comprised of flea eggs, larvae and pupae, which fall off your dog and end up around your home. So even if you succeed in getting all the fleas off of your dog, hundreds of flea eggs and larvae can still be in your carpet and on your furniture, just waiting to hatch and mature into more fleas!

If you want to get rid of the entire flea infestation, use a product like Hartz® UltraGuard Plus® Flea & Tick Carpet Powder to clear up the real problem. This carpet powder kills fleas and ticks for up to 30 days and prevents re-infestation for a year.
