Bathe in dawn soap and then comb him out. Don't over bathe him as it may dry out his skin, but just keep coming through him.

I have found that any soap or shampoo kills fleas.Start at the head and work your way down.Rinse thoroughly and make sure you dry him really well and keep him warm afterwards so he doesn't get chilled. Good luck! Also,the bedding will have to be washed in hot soapy water.
