Use Joy for Fleas

Tip on ridding your pets of fleas! My daughter is a professional dog/cat groomer. When fleas are a problem at her shop, they use a dilution of lemon Joy dishwashing liquid. Take about 1 and 1/2 inches in the bottom of the original bottle and then dilute it with water to fill to top again. Shampoo your pet, using care not to get it in their eyes. Lather them well! You may bath them with your favorite shampoo after the initial Joy bath and thorough rinse! Works like a charm!

Does lemon Joy kill fleas?

The chemicals in most dish soaps are very hard on the animals skin, and some may be toxic. I wouldn't trust anything with a lemon/citrus scent. The best thing is to break down and buy olain blue dawn if it is a puppy. If it is old enough for flea treatment then spend the $ on a good one.

Do not use the Hartz brand! Frontline and Advantage are pricey but they work. Also check the local pet supply shops, Petco used to sell an all natural powder that made the dog a little sticky but work really well. It was in a pink container and had peppermint oil and I think cedar oil as the ingredients.
