Learn More About the Best Flea Collars for Dogs

At first glance, fleas on dogs look like tiny egg-shaped specks about the size of gnats crawling on your dog’s skin or through their fur. They don’t fly, but they do a good imitation with their tremendously high leaps. If you examine a flea more closely, you may notice that it has a reddish-brown or black hue and that its body is taller than it is wide, measuring far more from top to bottom than from side to side—almost as though it’s been flattened between two books on a shelf. Fleas are incredibly hard to squish because of their armored exoskeletons, and they leave behind itchy red bug bites. If you see these fleas, consult your veterinarian to determine the best next steps.

Your dog is most likely to get fleas from other animals. Romps at the dog park, playdates with other pups and encounters with any other mammals can put your dog at risk of flea infestation. Your dog can also get fleas just by spending time outside and attracting fleas from the environment. But remember that even if you have a dog who spends most of their time indoors, they can catch fleas from other dogs, cats or even people who go in and out of the house. That’s why a flea collar for dogs of all activity levels and lifestyles is a smart preventive measure. Consult your veterinarian about what might be the best preventive actions and treatment plan for your pup. Save money with Petco’s dog deals while shopping for some of our top-rated dog flea collars.

Dogs share with us their love, companionship, entertainment—and sometimes, their fleas. If your dog has a flea infestation, you might find yourself with a series of itchy red bumps, particularly on your feet and legs—or within a flea’s jumping distance. However, while your dog’s fleas may occasionally jump on and even bite you, it’s extremely unlikely that you will develop an infestation, as fleas do not like to live on people. Your dog is a much more hospitable host, with lots of cozy fur to hide in. Still, even the odd bite can be irritating, so protect both yourself and your canine companion with regular flea treatment for dogs.

Preventive treatment is the best way to keep your pup comfortable and safe from flea- and tick-borne diseases. Apply the best flea collar or medicated treatment recommended for your dog as often as instructed. If a flea infestation is already in progress, look for flea & tick collars for dogs that are designed to disrupt the flea life cycle, killing both adult and immature fleas. This will help prevent future infestations. And if you end up needing to attack the problem with a medicated flea bath, you can browse some of Petco’s best dog treats to reward your best friend with afterward.
