No More Fleas! The Natural Way!

Use A Flea Comb

In a pot, pour in 3 cups of water and add in 3 chopped lemons. Allow the water to come to a boil before taking it off the heat. Next, let the lemons steep in the water. After 3 hours, strain the liquid and pour it into a spray bottle.

Mist your pet’s fur with the mixture lightly. This remedy will be effective for both dogs and cats. Next, comb their fur with the flea comb.

An alternate method involves pouring the liquid into a bowl and soaking the comb in it for some time. Then the comb can be used to go over the fur of your pet.

Either way, the treatment should be done at least twice a day. If the fleas are persistent, mist the pet’s bedding with the same solution for faster effect.

Use Pennyroyal and Cedar

Another flea remedy that is both natural and effective involves plants. Planting pennyroyal all around the yard can help get rid of fleas. The ones that remain behind can be sent away by the use of cedar shavings. If you have a dog as a pet, then place some cedar shavings in the kennel. Change it twice a year to keep it effective. You will often see your pets rolling in the shavings; don’t stop them. It is their natural instinct telling them to use the cedar to keep fleas away!

Use Brewer’s Yeast

Lastly, give a capsule of  brewer’s yeast to your pet every day. This solution works because the smell of the capsule permeates the fur of the pet. Fleas aren’t fans of the smell, so they will stay away!

Fleas on your pet can be irritating, not to mention the discomfort that they are feeling! If you don’t want to use chemical-based remedies to get rid of these irritating pests, give the above tricks a try and let me know how it goes!

What else do you use to keep the fleas away from your pet? I’d love to hear your remedies!

      Essential oils should not be used on cats. But, the silver is okay for them to have 🙂 I’m sorry, I don’t know of any sites for cats 😛
