My 10 wk old fawn has fleas!!! I have 4 doberman-dogs (who are best "buddies" with the him) and I had to get them treated for fleas and sprayed all their beds...but naw the fawn has them tooo...his "hen house" that he uses as him little house even has them!!! What should I treat him with, and what should I treat the "hen house" with that wouldnt hurt him (it has a dirt floor so whatever I use he could likly eat)

Any suggestions would be great! THANKS!

Try diametous earth. It is ground up seashells which is a fine powder which you can put on the floor which should help get rid of them.

Use Adams flea and tick spray. Better yet dose the dogs and the deer with Clean-up.

I use diamotacious earth and it does the job. Just sprinkle it around where they like to bed down.

Got mine at the local feed store. Also Tractor supply carries it, but may have to order to get it in stock at your local store.
