Even a clean and well-groomed furry friend can get exposed to fleas at a kennel, at a dog park, or simply from spending time outdoors. That’s why sometimes being a dog owner means protecting against -- and sometimes getting rid of -- fleas on your dog.

If your dog does get fleas, you will want to get rid of the pests as soon as possible. Not only are fleas an itchy discomfort for your dog, but they can also jump to your bedding and your upholstery. Fleas are in no way an unusual issue, and there are lots of strategies and products you can use to get your dog flea-free in no time.
