Natural Flea Removal, No Harsh Chemicals
After reading many articles/blogs I have found this to be a common recipe, for Flea prevention and control. I hate using all the chemicals on my fur babies especially after reading some of the scary articles out there of animals having seizures and worse. So What are we using instead of chemicals well its a common thing you find in your home. Apple Cider Vinegar, yep that is it. 😀
Before treating your pet with Apple Cider Vinegar, really try to work all the fleas you can out with a flea comb or pick them out (yuck right but we have to deal with it), which will also help remove some of the eggs.
To use as a rinse, shampoo your dog as you always do, and rinse thoroughly. Then rinse your pet’s coat thoroughly with Apple Cider Vinegar (unpasteurized) and massage it in. Fleas do not like the odor or taste, so they should dive out or fall out when rinsing thoroughly.
As a bonus, Apple Cider Vinegar will likely improve your dog’s skin and coat. It can help with dry skin, help with itching, and increase the shine in your pet’s coat. The vinegar also can be used with hot spots and to cleanse ears.
To make the spray, you can use Apple Cider Vinegar mixture for flea prevention and control. You can make a simple mixture with one part Apple Cider Vinegar to two parts vinegar. For Ear Infections split Apple Cider Vinegar and Water, 1/2 and 1/2.
Our Furry Friends are so important, we love them as family. I know mine are much like my children and Matti was my first child. Poor girl she was my guinea pig, Love her to pieces.
Since I lost her and my Wilbur I have decided to combine two of my passions, animals and fitness. We would worry about our fur kids health but not our own, we just shoved ourselves to the back burner. For this reason, I have a group on Facebook, Furry Fitness Family, which is for anyone who wants to take their health to the next step and bring your fur baby along with you. Click Here to join us.
