|but where is your dog getting the fleas from?
I guess I'm lucky because where I live, there don't seem to be fleas. Cookie never picks them up, not even at the dog parks. She does however pick them up at my bf's parents house where there are lots of flea infested dogs and cats. I just give her a dish soap bath before we leave that place and pick them all off. (usually around 6 of them). to make sure we don't bring any home.
some vets say garlic is a flea deterrent when fed to a dog, but some will say garlic is also toxic to dogs.
but depending on where your dog is getting them from. I'd try to attack the source, because I also don't like putting poison on or in my dog.
If the dog is getting fleas from the house.. treat the house. if from the yard, treat the yard. if from the park, bring some dish soap and kill them before going home.
