I’ve never use/used any flea treatment for any of my dogs in my lifetime but once for ball spots. Never worked!

This recipe below is what I use n never had one dog with fleas, ticks n even mosquitos. I hike n walk often my dogs in the Rockies so I definitely know this works. BTW, All flea meds you see out there are made with chemicals even them flea collars. Like wrapping your dog/cat with pesticides. Not good. A few members do use this recipe with great reviews. :yes: Essential oils are powerful so don’t add more of one n less of the others. Also use a quality oil like DoTerra or Young. :)

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

Put all in a spray bottle and shake.

My first bulldog, Sammy, had seizures every few months and my last, Vada, had the head bobbles…

Millie’s vet recently prescribed Simparica. Before giving her any I was curious how an oral worked to prevent ticks so I read the documentation that came with it. Then I read the website. 😬🤦

So I took the year worth of poisons back to the vet. They wanted me to get a collar from them instead so I said I would come back if reading about it went well. Of course that didn’t go well either.

Thanks @helsonwheels for your recipe! I think we will try that 😅

Flea meds especially the collar is basically pesticide. If you do your research n from reading your posts, I’m sure you do, wise to stay away from them. Some people believe in them but I sure wouldn’t wrap my dog with pesticides. As most knows me in here, I’m more on the holistic side first. Food is fuel as we say. Healthy diet builds a strong immune system n same for humans.

That recipe works. You can also use it on yourself if you’re stuck for mosquitoes.

I have don’t use any flea/tick products(other than the terrible experience with NexGuard that I didn’t know was bad-this was 2.5 years ago and had terrible side effects and other health issues it caused), I don’t use any of those chemicals anymore(I didn’t know the dangers and that they are actually chemicals-until Heath issues came up from using it).

I haven’t used anything because I haven’t had to.
But I do know lots of people in my area use a natural flea/tick prevention.
It’s called:
Kin Kind Outdoor shield(comes in spray or shampoo-it’s a green bottles).

If I need to use something I would use the product I put above(Kin Kind brand outdoor shield).
That would be my recommendation😊
