?if people would read the post properly and check you out they'd see your in hong kong and our products here are not the same as what you might have over there... we now have a pill that helps the dogs get rid of fleas you'd have to check with the clinics over there as to whats available to you for use. there is also a liquid we have for use that goes just behind ear and on its neck that helps... i would try one of those methods before cutting hair all off again. most dogs will naturally get the fleas from outside anyway so no matter what you do they always come back so then neck treatment is best once every 3 months...

You only have to have him shaved if he is matted .I use front line myself but if you don't have the money for that you can use over the counter flea control once a month drops .I think these work better then collors never had a flea color work or poweder ect .a cheap way to kill fleas on a dog in bathing it is to use dawn dish washing liquid mixed 1 percent dawn to 15 % water. I am a pet groomer this done once well not hurt the dogs skin near as much as the fleas that are on it does just use a conditionor after words . Just be very carefull not to get this in the dogs eyes and to rince it very well as leaving it on the skin well dry then skin as leaving any soap would . Treat the house if nothing else vacum very good throw the vacum bags out as flea eggs can live and develop there . I wish you luck

My dog used too have many flees. then i bathed her using anti flees shampoo sold in some supermarket. now, she's free of flees.

you should take him to a Vet. afterwards, you should buy a colar, which rejects fleas. you may also use the powder, or the shampoo :)! you dog will be just fine! :D
