I brought home my new baby, Pecan on Monday and have been inspecting her and picking at her frequently to make sure that she's clean. Unfortunately, she did come to me with fleas (I discovered quickly at home after inspecting and finding flea dirt). I have some questions about dealing with this. I'm reluctant/not wanting to do any actual flea treatments/medications just yet. I do intend to bathe her though, and I was wondering if anyone has any recommended shampoos/soaps that can be used? I presently have a bottle of 'original' palmolive, and a bottle of Mane & Tail (and body). I know the second is pet safe, however I've seen mixed 'reviews' regarding the pet-safety of palmolive. My intention was to dilute the palm olive heavily, do a quick 'wetting'/coating of the diluted mixture, then wash it off with the Mane and Tail. Does that seem like a safe way to go about it? I've been using a flea comb to get bugs, but the flea dirt is kind of gross and if I can get rid of some of the fleas while washing away the flea dirt that would be ideal to me.
