Tea tree oil

Does anyone know if tea tree oil helps to fight flea infestation?

Amazing and very toxic to dogs if they lick it. (edited - apparently even putting it on a dog can cause problems, cats too)
Please look that up on google. "tea tree oil dogs toxicity" should work.

A few M&Ms would not be toxic to a large dog, they are milk chocolate.

You need to look up how and why chocolate is toxic to dogs if you don't think it is, same w/tea tree oil

It does nothing for fleas. I use tea tree oil for a lot of things but never anywhere the dogs or cats could get into.

NEEM is very helpful against fleas.
