Chemical flea shampoos are available today. If you're worried it might harm your pooch's skin, you can try natural alternatives. Some people use gentle soap and water. A paste made from Terramin clay or bentonite and water also works well. Other natural products you can use include:
  • Neem oil - This plant's bark and leaves have anti-ulcer, anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, antiviral and antifungal compounds. Mix an ounce of it with four to six ounces of water and two or three ounces of white vinegar. Drench your dog with water then apply the mixture. To disperse the neem oil further, you can brush your dog.
