Dipping refers to a concentrated solution that is poured directly on your dog's fur or dabbed on with sponge to kill fleas. Most products are not washed off so the formula can work to kill fleas.
Flea dips are safe for pets, but must be administered correctly with the correct dosage. For this reason, we always suggest dipping be done by a professional. Your veterinarian will know the best product dosage, at what age it can be applied, and your pet will be watched closely and can be treated immediately if any adverse effects are noted.
If your cat has a flea infestation, the best course you can take is to see your veterinarian for advice and treatment as many products intended for dogs are harmful to cats.
