Mosquitoes from biting! Avoid face area with this, don't want to burn your babies eyes, I use baby shampoo on the face.==========================================
The following things where sent from other dog owners ect:
1.Bath for your dog that is effective without Chemicals.Which is the best dog flea shampoo to use? Believe it or not, Dawn dishwashing liquid (Origional/Blue only) works wonders for a flea infested dog. Lots of Groomers have told me this: The oils in it will suffocate the fleas, keeps the eggs from sticking to the hair follicles, and also keeps your dogs skin/fur from drying out. When using it, just make sure to soap up the dogs neck first and this has to be done quickly, otherwise the fleas will swarm to the dogs face and crawl in theirs ears, and nose to hide. You will notice many fleas crawling around their eyes when you bathe them if your dog is heavily infested with fleas. The trick is to completely soap them up, and then keep them saturated for at least 5 minutes. Rinse well, and most of them will be gone, or go away soon. You may have to follow up in a week or so to get rid of any remaining stragglers. This is also safe for young puppy that is not old enough for Chemical shampoo's and it is safer. Remember to put a Drop of Mineral Oil in each eye so soaps do not irritate their tender eyes, flush with eye wash after their bath.
2. Then follow by a home-made flea spray.ˇˇ
