Getting Rid of Fleas and Ticks

Now, I don't know by experience if this works or not, but I know a lady that swears by this little remedy.

She puts, let's see, she says, she puts 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to 1 quart of water in her pets drinking water, they don't seem to mind the water at all. They drink it up really good, and she never seems to have flee or tick problems. Like I said, I don't know about this remedy personally, but she never seems to have problems. (03/19/2010)

Getting Rid of Fleas and Ticks

Getting rid of fleas and ticks can be a big problem for dog owners. You will find at your local pet store different products that are used to eliminate your dog of fleas and ticks, but do they work?

If you are considering putting a flea collar around your pets neck you may want to think twice about it because there are many toxic things that are in flea collars.


Many people are looking for a natural alternative to keep their dog free from fleas and ticks. Some of these natural remedies will help to keep your dog safe and bug free.

One great way to get rid of them is to use natural olive oil because studies show that coating your dog in olive oil will kill the fleas and get rid of them for good. After you have used the olive oil you want to make sure that you give you dog several baths with dog approved shampoo so you can get the olive oil out. It will take a few baths to get it all out of your dog's coat so make sure you give them multiple baths.

Another remedy that works well is to use house salt were your dog lays around because the salt will get on their coat and fleas do not like salt at all. This is another recommended way to get rid of unwanted pest on your beloved dog and is also a safe alternative.


Remember that getting rid of fleas and ticks naturally is better than using some of the pet store options that in most cases are not healthy for your dog and cat. Good luck. (03/19/2010)
