If you, or anyone, have a cat, do not give them garlic. It will cause anaemia in cats.
Hope this helps.
Sooth him by washing him in an OATMEAL SHAMPOO (ONCE A DAY) to relieve the itching, but use cool water(Hot H2O will only intensify the itching)
Then use the DIATOMACEOUS EARTH called AMORPHOUS (at pet supply stores) on the dog once a day & rub into skin. Besides repelling fleas it keep your dogs skin healthy.
Take to groomer and get a dip, and then apply a best flea med from the vet ( Frontline ) Make sure that you clean (spray) all bedding and cloth items in your house.
Since I have a weiner dog as I call it, and a beagle, which both are home dogs but go out several times a day in my fenced in acre yard, they always seem to bring me unwanted visitors when they come in, mainly of the tic department. Never had fleas to deal with, but always tics on them. I did a lot of research and ran across a company called pet protector which has a pet tag you put on their collar and it creates a scientific non harmfull wave around each animal that wears it keeping them clear of those unwanted visitors for up to 4 years . They claim they have already sold 25,000 tags around the world with great success.
When I was growing up we used seven dust on our dogs and it worked really well to keep the fleas off the dogs. The seven dust can also be used in your yard to control the fleas in your yard so that your dog won't have so many on him.
1)Even though it's nontoxic, getting it in your lungs is not recommended.
2) To exterminate them on your dog or cat sprinkle the DE along your dry its spine. Massage it along the body, working your way carefully to the extremities of the animal, do not get it in your pets eyes.
3) Spread ORGANIC diatomaceous earth on the rugs in your house, brush it in and leave for about four days. Then vacuum your carpet.
4) Repeat the application frequently during an infestation. You should notice a decrease in your house within a couple days.
