We, here at Dogsallthetime, are pretty sure that getting rid of fleas is one of the most common problems that we face as dog owners. We hate it so much when our fur-child starts scratching their body nonstop. But before you start worrying, did you know that there are actually a lot of natural ways on how you can get rid of dog fleas effectively?
Here are some of them:
First on our list is a flea collar. This is considered as one of the most effective accessories that you can use to get rid of your dog’s nasty fleas. And not just that, it is also quite convenient for dog owners to use (especially those who are too busy) since you only need to change the collar at least once a week. Just soak overnight your dog’s collar or a bandana in lavender or cedar oil and place on its neck, wait and see the result.
Flea and Tick Shampoo
Vets may tell us that regular dog shampoos have ingredients that can ward off fleas, but a special flea and tick shampoo can deliver a more effective and fast result in removing these nasty bugs living on your dog’s fur. Just let the shampoo sit on your dog’s coat for more than 10 minutes before you rinse it with warm water.
Instead of the usual combing session that you have with your fur-ball, apply a squeeze of lemon on your dog’s coat. Lemon juice has been scientifically proven to repel fleas on dogs, so you should really try this. Just cut a lemon into half before covering it with warm water; let the mixture soak for 8 hours or more before applying it to your dog’s coat.
Flea Deterring Drink
A secondary aid to getting rid of fleas, a deterring drink will not only help make your pet’s coat free from flea but also shiny and soft. Add 1 teaspoon of apple cider on your pet’s drinking water every day. In case your pet do not like apple cider, you can also use white vinegar.
Follow these tips that we have mentioned above and you will surely get rid of your dog’s fleas naturally.
