How do I check my dog for fleas?
What are the first signs of fleas? Itching, scratching, and biting the skin are often the first telltale signs that your dog has fleas and warrant further looking into, as would hair loss, scooting, “hot spots,” and a copper- or rust-colored coat.
How do puppies get fleas? Puppies can become infested with fleas through contact with other animals or with contact with fleas in the environment. They have strong back legs, perfect to jump from host to host or even from the environment onto the puppy. Flea infestations in the home can sometimes go unnoticed for weeks or even months.
