What's a good flea dip?
Flea dips are basically chemical solutions that you mix with water to dilute. Then, you dip the pet in them according to the instructions, and it will kill off a large number of the fleas. You should look for dips that have pyrethrin in them as the flea-killing ingredient. They can give you some immediate relief, but they don't work as your sole flea control method. Why? Because they don't kill all the adult fleas, and they don't get at the eggs that will be lying around your house.
