any soap will, if you leave it on for about 15 minutes but it is very importlant to throughly rinse it off the dog, to avoid skin irritation...also if you include some garlic powder in their food, it repells fleas

Garlic is actually known to be bad for dogs, so I would avoid adding it to their food in any form. Dawn dish detergent is so effective on fleas--not because of suffocation because we have used other soaps that do not work at all--it kills them instantly. To avoid a dry coat after a shampoo, follow up with a moisturizing shampoo for dogs.

Will dawn dish washing liquid get rid of fleas on cats?

Yes, I got a kitten a year ago, and the poor thing was infested with fleas! The kitten was too young for flea shampoo, so we decided to try dawn dishwashing liquid and it worked. If you do research on fleas, you'll find that if you put a candle in a bowl with dish wash water on the floor at night, fleas will go to it and drown in the water. This is because it cuts the tension in water and they will drown. Same principal applies to putting it on your cat, it will kill them. I washed my kitten in water with dawn dish washing liquid and then comb the fur with a comb.....regular one from the dollar general store made for humans :) and they would fall right out, all dead! My kitten had no skin reaction. We did have to take him to get dewormed. When cats have lots of fleas they may accidently ingest some when cleaning their fur. This causes cats to get worms.
