Looking for a Safe Internal Flea Treatment

Other than the a splash of vinegar in the dogs drinking water to deter the fleas, is there anything else that is safe and can be consumed by the pets that will also help?

I have read that garlic and brewer's yeast are good for that. I have never tried them, but a few minutes of research on the Net should give you all you need to know. Good luck!

PLEASE DO *NOT* give your dog garlic... it can kill them! Here's one of the may lists online to avoid for dogs:

I've tried brewers yeast in the past with really no success. Your best bet is to put Borax (found in laundry aisle at the store) between mattress/springs, cushions on chairs, etc. where your pet can't get to it. Vac cum up about once a week... makes the house smell good, too! Then check here: www.thriftyfun.com/tf692775.tip.html as well as other places on the net about how to make your own flea traps. Lots of ideas online but PLEASE DO *NOT* give your dog garlic!
