Home Remedy For Your Dog's Flea Problems

September 30, 2020 2 min read

It's that time of year again. Your pet has been scratching, your dog has flea bites on its legs and every now and then, briefly, you see those little black dots beneath its fur.

Fleas?! Your first instinct may be to run to the store and buy a flea bomb and some flea collars and flea spray and...

Ever tried some home remedies?

There are a lot of home remedies out there but only a few actually work. Borax for instant which is a household soap product used for laundry can be used to get those pesky critters out of your carpets and furniture. Simply sprinkle it out on the carpeting and clothed furniture and take a brook or bristled cleaning brush and push it in really good. It wont harm your pets or little ones. Leave it in over night and the salts inside the powdered soap will dehydrate all adults, larvae, and eggs. Simply vacuum it up in the morning and throw it away outside in case some survive.

Now after that borax there may be one or two survivors and of course your poor pets. Take some apple cider vinegar and dilute it with water. Put it on your pets fur and you can watch the fleas instantly drop off of them. You can do this before a flea bath if you prefer since vinegar isn't the most pleasant of smells even if its apple cider. Afterwards your pet should be feeling much better and a lot less covered in fleas.

If you still find a few stragglers in your carpet you can catch them easily with a pie tin, some dish soap, and a night light. They'll be attracted to the night light so place the pie tin with water and dish soap and catch the rest of them.

Instead of wasting money on all those expensive flea medications and a trip to the vet try saving your money. Use what's in your house to nip the problem before it comes to be a big problem.
