I use baking soda on my three in side dogs. And I also sprinkle in on my carpets and then take a broom and kinds brush it while its on the carpet.vacum it after about an hour. Supposedly it makes the fleas burst by drying them up. It seem to help any way, also boil two large lemons in about a quart of water for just a few minutes, let cool over night, bathe the dog and then rinse it well, then pour the lemon mix over the dog and let dry. I have used these remedies a lot and with three inside dogs it seems to work well for me any way.
Ad apple cider vinegar to their water,a couple of tablespoons per gallon will work,I have a Friend that did this from the time his dog was a pup and has never have a flea or tick in his life....buy Braggs vinegar from a health food store IT REALLY WORKS,give it time to get in the dogs system....
I have 2 very small babie chuhuas and I use johnsons baby shampoo on them , wash them and let it sit on them for about 5 min and rinse. I use this on the older dogs I have also and I treat the yard with palmolive dish soap, in a sprayer like for fertilizer, just hook up the hose and spray the yard. No chemicals used at all and no more fleas.

The only home remedy is wash in dawn dish washing liquid but its a quick kill there and gone .. You should call your vet or a local vet and see if they have a product called comfort is great product and not to expensive and works great starts killing fleas in 30 mins. And last for a month!!!
Feeding dogs fresh garlic along with Brewer's yeast( I use tablets & stick into their food. Also comes in powder form) mixed in their regular food daily will repel fleas, as well as, ticks. These parasite insects will not drink the blood of it's host ( the dog) if tainted with garlic.
If you, or anyone, have a cat, do not give them garlic. It will cause anaemia in cats.
Hope this helps.
I just noticed that your dog is also scratching himself raw.
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.
I have found that using regular Head & Shoulders shampoo works great on killing fleas, also the Head & Shoulders with conditioner in it leaves the dogs fur super soft and shiny. Not a long term fix but does the trick to give your pet some relief.
Wash in plain dawn dish liquid
I saw a remedy guy on TV who said rub an orange skin on a dog. He wrote a book full of home remedies.
We'll, I'm not sure of any home remedies for a newborn puppy but to be on the safe side why not just use a flea comb.
The remedy that people used on hunting dogs to keep off the ticks and fleas is powdered sulphur. It is hard to find it now but it does work. You would rub the powdered sulfur on their fur after a good bath and they dry. And you should not have a problem with fleas.
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.
If you have a flea problem then you not only have to treat the dog, but your home and yard as well. Fleas breed in your carpet, in your vacuum, under furniture, and in couch cushions. So give the dog a vinegar water bath and apply advance or another topical treatment to the dog. Then apply 7-dust powder along baseboards, up the vacuum, under furniture, and in couch cushions. Get the 7-dust granules for the yard. 7-dust is a poison found in the lawn and garden area in most stores.
No put the flea drops on the mom when the pups get to her it will rub off on to them that is the only way to handle this kind of problem.
I don't know of any but I would see a vet....most meds are safe for puppies.....ask about frontline plus while you're there....that's what we use on my dogs....good luck to you
You can try garlic, but I suggest a vet with meds. Most of the meds now can be safely given to puppies. Also, want to treat your yard with Diazinon using a spreader.
Just apply Dawn soap directly on the flea and let it sit,it will come off a couple of day later when you brush it,
