Dog flea & tick combs have been used for a long time. Before chemical flea collars, sprays and shampoos, flea brushes were almost always used to locate and remove those nasty fleas from pets. Though sometimes, an ordinary hair brush will do, a real dog flea brush has tines or teeth that are close enough together to capture a flea in a dogs hair. If the tines are too far apart, the flea will slip through. If they are too close, the dogs hair will not smoothly glide through the comb. So finding and the right dog flea comb and brush is important or all that brushing won’t find a flea. We have reviewed and ranked the 6 best flea combs and brushes for dogs;

Though flea combs can be very effective in removing fleas from your dog immediately, they do not offer any long-term protection. we suggest that in addition to using a flea comb, also giving your dog a bath. Even better, bathing the dog using a dog flea shampoo, spray or powder to kill any remaining fleas and eggs. After which, placing a flea collar on the pet to keep fleas off your dog. As in all cases involving your dog, should you have any questions or concerns regarding a flea or tick infestation, please consult your vet.
