For inexpensive flea prevention blend equal amounts of dried chamomile and dried pennyroyal. Stuff the mixture into homemade fabric bags. Place these pillows in kitty's bed, on their favourite windowsill, floor area, or other popular spots. it is a refreshing, chemical-free way to keep the fleas away from our precious pets. (Pennyroyal can be purchased at the health food store, usually in bulk.)
For a carpeted room: Use 2-3 cups of dry 20 Mule Team Borax in a colander to sift it in carpeted rooms. Leave it for 2 weeks for their life cycle to finish before you vacuum. I had no fleas for at least a year and a half. In the late 80's Flea Busters was charging $250 to go through a small house with this very same 20 Mule Team Borax, guaranteeing it to be non toxic. For an average yard: Scatter cedercide granules (a natural product). A little goes a long way. Five pounds lasts more than a year and you can order it online.
Cut 6 lemons in half, boil a quart of water, add lemons to water and let steep for a few hours. Then strain the solution into a spray bottle. Spray on pet's fur; do not use on the face. You can also apply spray to your hand and rub on your pet's fur.
To keep fleas at bay, you can spray your pet and the bedding and carpets with Wintergreen scented rubbing alcohol. It's an easy, inexpensive solution for an occasional flea. I use a topical flea preventative, but I still saw a few fleas from time to time until I tried this.

Some raw is best but forget the Purina and go specialty foods with no corn wheat or soy. More expensive but they eat less and feel better because their nutritional needs are met.
No vaccines to destroy the immune system. Read any anti vaccine site for ingredients in vaccines. Mercury, aluminum. antifreeze, rotting animal parts and loads of disgusting things. Study how often times parvo vaccine gives parvo. Research is beautiful and lifesaving.
