Fleas on dogs are often an owners worse nightmare. In today’s article I wanted to provide you with some natural approaches on how to remove the little blighters safely and quickly.
Grooming – Most of the dogs’ fur can be combed with a flea comb so as to remove fleas. Take a fine-toothed flea comb where the teeth are especially closer together in comparison to the width of a flea.
Diet – A proper diet is also important in terms of keeping your dog healthy. Providing your pet with good nutritious food is important since at the same time it will reduce your dog’s susceptibility to fleas apart from a host of other benefits.
Bathing – Giving a bath to your dog is another natural flea control for dog treatment. It is also one of the most appropriate even during heavier infestations and will help to remove almost all of the fleas on your dog. Bathing is better than insecticides since the usage of shampoos, sprays, collars, flea powders and dips can be harmful for your pet.
Homeopathy – You can also use homeopathic treatment for your dog. Sometimes, it is seen that the fleas can get so deeply ingrained that even giving the best nutrition to your dog might not be enough. In such cases, a good homeopathic program will help in dealing with deeper imbalances which are often the underlying cause of the problem.
Rosemary flea dip – Try out this natural flea dip that can help you to deal with fleas naturally. In a pan, steep two cups of fresh rosemary for thirty minutes in boiling water. Discard the leaves after straining the liquid and add up to another gallon of warm water according to the size of your dog. Wait, till the liquid cools but don’t let it cool down altogether and pour over your dog until he/she is completely soaked. Dry your dog naturally.
