This flea treatment product is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a powder that you sprinkle on the fur of your pet to get rid of fleas. By applying flea powder on your pet, you can exterminate all living fleas in a couple of days. The powder works as long as it remains on your pet and it would be best to apply it outside your home, as long as it’s not windy. Follow the instructions on the flea powder package. It’s probably easier to use if you have a dog than a cat, because cats usually lick their fur. If they eat large amounts of flea powder, they can get breathing problems, so I won’t recommend this at all. Dogs don’t lick themselves as much as cats do, but you can’t prevent it unless you observe them 24/7 – which you won’t.
Think of flea powder as an alternative to all the other available methods to get rid of fleas. In my opinion it’s not the best one, but you can try it out if all your other efforts in getting rid of a flea infestation fails. The best reason I can come up with for using flea powder is that it’s not as noisy as flea spray for pets. My dog hates the sound of flea spray and always tries to get away from it as soon as he hears it. As I said before, I see flea powder as an alternative to other flea treatment products, so you can try it to see if it succeeds where other products have failed. There are disadvantages of using it though. The powder can be quite difficult to control, especially when applying it under windy conditions. Once you get it on, your pets might try to lick it or shake it off. When you try to put the powder on, you could inhale it by a mistake. It can also rub off on furniture, blankets, curtains and beddings. There are different opinions on the amounts, but flea powder does leave some chemicals on the pet. More than flea shampoo does. If you have both cats and dogs that need to be treated, this might not be the best solution for you. Cats need one type of flea powder and dogs need another. In most cases, either one can’t be used on both pets. This is important to remember.
When flea powder is the only solution
I try to get around every product that exists for treating and preventing fleas. One could easily skip a product like this because of all the disadvantages. You have to look at it as another alternative solution to the other flea treatment products. If there was only one product that could do it all on every pet in the world, every single time a flea was spotted, then I wouldn’t have so many visitors coming to my website looking for answers, and flea infestations wouldn’t be such a big deal. Unfortunately this isn’t the case. People experience different problems and need different products to solve them. Flea powder could be the one that solves yours.
