Use Listerine, amber colored only, for itch. Make sure you get the feet entirely wet along with body parts. It can be used on livestock and pets safely. Helps cure almost any itch, from fungus, yeast, allergy itch, or habit.

Their diet must be cleaned up too. No corn, wheat, or soy. They are all allergens, especially now with GMOs. Never buy pet food from the grocery store. Purina is so commercial it almost always has its first ingredient as corn, the biggest allergen. Include some raw food including fruits and veggies (NEVER any grapes or raisins as they can kill). Check on Diamond lamb and rice at the horse feed store. It is inexpensive and the first ingredient is lamb.

Vaccines can bring on immune system failure. Vaccine ingredients are very dangerous to the brain and other organs. Google ingredients to verify. The rabies vaccine is ,However, mandatory for getting a license.

You can use dry 20 Mule Team Borax in carpets for flea infestation. Don't use flea poisons. They enter the liver and kidneys. Build immune system with good food and good care. It takes a while, but is well worth it. Fleas don't seem interested in biting as much, life is longer, and certainly more comfortable.

This is more relative to the fleas than the itchy skin. I have discovered
diatomacious earth as a flea repellent, and given internally (mixed with their dog food, and a liquid such as water) is a natural dewormer.

This is one of the best kept secrets I have not heard of in my 57 years of life! I am currently experimenting on taking it internally myself! I hope what I have read on it is true!

I would think that the Listerine would make them sticky. I have used it on my self (as a mosquito repellent) and it was like I sprayed sugar all over my body.

Yuk! I had to go right away and wash it off.

Diatomacious earth is an excellent product for many things. Intestinal worms for one. You MUST use food grade DE ONLY. The other DE has poison in it.

Inexpensive, very helpful. Check it on google. Dosage not critical. Good for human and animals of all kinds. A little over food every day is very effective. I had heard 75% of the people in the world had worms. I had no symptoms but tried DE. It took a while but I passed a 6 inch rope of worms. Yuk. Excuse it but how else can I tell you. I would much rather do DE than prescription poison. Beware of heartworm territory. DE does not kill or protect from heartworm, only intestinal worms. Tapes, roundworm, hookworm and a few others. What child escapes having pinworms? Again, check online to be better educated about natural cures. Thrifty Fun is a good start for some.

Hi Vicki, I live in Roseburg too so I went to the feed store today and bought the Diamond food you recommended. Thank you so much. I was concerned that the food I was using was not good, and sure enough, the first ingredient listed was corn.

When my dog was a baby she had the shiniest velvet coat, not so much lately. I hope I can bring it back to being shiny and healthy.
Thanks again. ~ Ivy's mommy
