In order to see actual fleas on your dog, you may have to look fast. Fleas can jump very fast and very high, and even at their adult size they are very small (1/16-1/8 in.). They are flat-bodied and dark brown, almost black, in color. The more blood they ingest the lighter in color they may appear.

WebMD veterinary experts answer commonly asked questions about fleas and ticks on your dog. I use Diatomaceous earth on my yard for fleas.

You can also sprinkle a little into the coat of your dog or cat to kill fleas. It does not hurt them. You can sprinkle some on their food to keep intestinal parasites and ear mites at bay or even cure them if that is the case.
