    Default Flea treatments

    I am looking for flea treatment recommendations. I used Dawn soap the blue original formula on Miss Porkchop. I also, used Skin So Soft by Avon for a temporary relief . I got home from work and she was bitten by them fleas left her bleeding. I was crushed to find her this way. I never experienced this before.

    I am not sure if a vet prescription is needed . This is my first time dealing with this mess.

    Thank you

    I just made a big batch...trust me it WORKS!

    FOR TICKS/FLEAS

    14 oz of Witch Hazel
    12 drops of Lavender
    15 drops of Citronella
    15 drops of Lemongrass

    Also I add a couple drops of pure lavender on top of the collar.
    NO need but....you can add like 1/4 cup of a carrier oil to keep skin moist.

    If you have fleas in the house, you will have to treat the house,furniture,carpets,etc.

    Another natural treatment is to spray dog with solution of 50% apple cider vinegar and 50% water.

    I would go the chemical route temporarily.
    Wash all bedding in hot, soapy water
    Vacuum all carpets, hardwood floors, linoleum and tiled floors, and throw away the vacuum bag
    Choose and apply an environmental flea control like methoprene, or call a local exterminator
    Choose and apply a spray, pellet, or non-toxic treatment for your yard
    Continue to treat your dog and any other pets with a monthly preventative ( eg. K9 Advantix II https://www.amazon.com/Bayer-Advanti.../dp/B004QN0M2S).

    I went to my local moms and pops petshop got her a shampoo and conditioner 2 n 1 Hemp kind. I washed her with Dawn soap earlier and again tonight with the new shampoo. The owner recommended me Spot on . I give her a bath then in the morning apply spot on between her shoulder blades. It’s a 4 month supply. I will go back Thursday to pick up the spray for the home so the flea eggs can die . I am feeling at ease. My girl is super tired after too many washes in one day. She’s exhausted.

    If you don’t have the oils for the mix, you can use only peppermint oil. BUT yes a BUT... if you have a cat you CANNOT use peppermint oil. Peppermint oil will kill the eggs... I would definitely spray all linens once washed.. here’s a great link I keep in my favorites that explains properly about fleas n peppermint oil. Make sure you follow their steps. It’s actually very simple steps.

    I am out of lemon oil. I did get witch hazel and lavender oil mix together and rubbed it on her . Fleas are still there. I will buy something for the apt on Thursday. Hope the eggs and fleas die.

    DO NOT use lemon oil. Citrus is not good for pets. Lemongrass is not a citrus. Why lemongrass is great to use.

    You can use this to sprinkle furniture and carpets,even dog,if you wish. Sprinkle it around outside,too. It kills fleas because it kills the oils on their "shell" and they die.
    It is really the safest thing you can use(besides the e.oil). It won't even hurt if she eats it. @MissWaddles13

    Just using it alone will work.
