I think Jack my 8 lb maltese has fleas.. He is on a raw diet, has ACV in his water, and I spray him with an herbal spray that is supposed to repel fleas, lice, ticks, etc. He has been itching and scratching himself lately but I haven't seen an actual flea yet although I did see a dead one a few weeks ago. We are also still having a problem with tear stains and yeasty paws, which he chews on as well. They cleared up for a while after switching to raw but the past 3-4 months it seems to have built back up to how it was before. I have tried trimming all the red stained fur from around his eyes and then tried to keep them dry but it just comes back. He eats chicken, turkey, beef, quail, pork, occasional fish. I will admit though he is given treats throughout the day, usually teeny sizes of what we are eating, like the very tip of a tortilla chip or a bit of scrambled egg. He eats pretty much the same thing as my other dog Lila (a 3.5 lb yorkie), but she isn't itchy at all, except for the occasional normal scratch. I don't really know what else to do and if it is fleas I REALLY don't wan't to have to use a commercial flea medicine.
