    You first bath your dog thoroughly in a good shampoo.
    Does not need to be a flea shampoo however I find the Purina One Medicated Shampoo ( blue one) very good . I also use Aloveen .

    Then you go and get yourself some Advantage or Advocate ( does worms as well) and you traet your pooch. If infestation is heavy you maybe wise to invest in some bombs for your home and treat your pooches bedding.

    Once you are in a regular routine with the baths and flea treatments you should have no more problems

    It is interesting to note though that the fleas seem to be a bigger problem this summer.

    I just wanted to add that my vet told me not to apply the flea treatments straight after a bath and that I should wait at least 2 days as it is not as effective (maybe due to cleaning natural oils etc?)
    Other than that I think ChoppaChop has covered it.
