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.
