Where do fleas usually lay eggs on dogs?
Female fleas lay eggs on their host. On cats, most fleas live around the neck. On dogs, they're more often found around the hips. Flea eggs aren't sticky, so they'll soon fall from the animal's fur.

It's quite hard to spot the flea eggs, be it on your pet, on their bedding or on the floor, due to their tiny size (less than half a millimetre long). They are oval in shape and of a whitish colour. Under a microscope, one can see that flea eggs look like rice grains.
How often should you wash your dog with fleas?

Where do fleas live inside the house?
