I just brought my puppy Sputnik home last thursday, and when we got him home, he had fleas! We've had flea infestations in our house before, god awful flea infestations, and I don't wanna go back to that EVER again. I've started bathing him in dawn dish detergent, the blue kind,(Giving him a bath is awful, due to the fact that he acts like I'm murdering him) and combing him with a flea comb every morning and night. What can I do to completely eliminate the threat of a flea infestation? Also, my parents aren't on board with me, so I don't have a way to bomb the house or take care of the yard.:/ Suggestions please???

I would contact your vet. They can prescribe something you can apply directly to your pup. It will kill the fleas as they get on your dog. Good Luck!
