Will dawn dish washing liquid get rid of fleas on dogs?
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.
