Still dealing with late season fleas but want to stay green? EcoDog has dug up several eco-safe options for bathing your dog & helping to rid your house & hound of pesky fleas!
*Certain essentail oils are shown to scare off fleas naturally – look for products including: cedar, eucalyptus, rosemary, tea tree, lavender or citrus.
*Natural flea spray: steep lemon quarters overnight and then spritz on pets neck, armpits and lower back to help repel fleas.
*Diatomaceous earth, a fossilized pest repellent, can be sprinkled around the yard or edge of your house to prevent fleas from coming inside.
->Flea Free 101: Vacuumm frequently & don’t forget cracks & corners where fleas will hide!
->Adding Garlic into your dogs diet may help to ward off fleas but be careful as to the amount. 1-3 cloves max. daily minced and mix in with food.
->Bathing Tip: Since fleas will run for the high hills, aka your dogs head, once you start to wash – start your dogs bath by placing a “barrier” of shampoo or a ring around its neck – start the scrubbing from there down to force fleas down the drain rather that up & off your pups head!
Keep up with your flea control routine to prevent eggs & future outbreaks. You can stay flea free with proper precautions & maintenence!
