Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today.
Friend, you will need to treat your dog with medication against fleas. If he is heavily infested this is a combination that I have found that works very well:
1- Frontline or the generic pet armour once a month for at least 3-4 months. You can keep him on it all year around.
2- Capstar tablets once a day every other day for 2 weeks.
3- Vacuum the home daily and get rid of the bag.
4- Treat the home with a product called fleabusters. You can buy this at amazon.com. It is very safe for pets and family and does an excellent job against the larva and eggs in the home.
