Flea Comb for Dogs and Cats

PetFriendly Flea Comb

An effective and easy-to-use flea comb for cats and dogs. Use it to look for ticks and remove dead fleas from your pet's fur.


Product details

This flea comb comes in one size and color. It has a durable, yet comfortable grip so you can easily brush through dog and cat fur to search for pests. The tines are not sharp but should be used gently.

How to use

Flea combs have a variety of purposes. Grab the base of the comb loosely between your palm and thumb. Begin by brushing your pet's hair to remove any loose hair and tangles. Then, start combing from the base of their hair follicles outward. Hold your pet's skin down to their body to reduce irritation.

Tips for use

This product is the perfect tool to:

  • Find and remove fleas

  • Work through mats, knots, and tangles

  • Apply flea and tick treatment

Important information

If your pet has long hair, you may need other tools like a de-matting brush to work through large mats and tangles.

How to Use Flea Combs

Part your pet's fur
To effectively remove fleas, start by parting your pet's hair and inspect the most common areas (behind the ears, in armpits and groin, and under their tail). Remember to clean your hands before and after treating your pet.
Brush outward
When you find a flea or tick embedded in your pet's fur, it's best to pull the brush straight out, away from their skin. Dip the comb in a bowl of hot soapy water between strokes (when dealing with fleas) and isopropyl alcohol (when dealing with ticks).
Treat your pet
Positive reinforcement can be a great tool for getting your pet to cooperate. Provide lots of high-value treats like our Blueberry Muffin Treats or Beefy Bites.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Flea Combs

Want to learn more? Explore our commonly asked questions about our flea comb for dogs and cats.

What is a flea comb?

Flea combs are small tools used to remove fleas, ticks, and other debris from pet fur. Flea combs have many small tines or teeth that allow you to easily sort through hair follicles to dig out pests.

Do they help with flea dirt, adult fleas, and flea eggs?

Yes! Flea combs are great tools to have on hand to help comb through hair before or after bathing. If you've found pests on your pet, use a flea comb to remove fleas, flea dirt, and flea eggs and prevent reinfestation.

Do pet parents need a flea comb?

Definitely! Flea combs can come in handy, especially if your pets enjoy the outdoors. Routine flea combing can help you prevent or stay on top of health issues like fleas, ticks, and other skin problems your pet may be prone to.

What's the best flea comb?

Look for flea combs with metal tines. This type makes it easier to glide through your pet's hair. Look for a comb that has tines that can work through your dog's fur. Long-haired and double-coated breeds may need combs with longer tines.

What else do you need to get rid of fleas?

A flea comb is just one of the tools needed to get rid of fleas for good. You may also explore a household spray for your home, degreasing soap to kill fleas on contact, and monthly flea and tick prevention (should be used from at least April to September in most states).
