Natural Treatments: Fleas and Heartworm
Fleas and Heartworm preventives are becoming a problem to control safely. Those flea and heartworm pills are nothing but poison that you put in their body monthly, which is slowly killing our pets. It is really scary when you find out that manufacturer are being shut down that make products that are supposedly safe for our pets. I for one and tired of the misinformation given by manufacturers and those we should trust for our pet health needs, so we have chosen to go a safer route to control fleas and heartworm . Below are some of my recommendations:
**To remove fleas from any animal, carpet, or whatever: **FLEAS: If you have had a terrible time getting rid of fleas in your home. Try Borax laundry soap. Vacuum your carpet well. Then sprinkle the Borax over your carpet. Use a broom and work it down into the fibers of your carpet really good. Don’t vacuum for a week unless you have to. The fleas will eat the Borax. It will cause them to dehydrate and die. Repeat the process every week or so for a month. It really works, it’s cheap and it is safe to use even if you have small children.
**another option for Fleas in your carpet: Sprinkle table salt on the carpet and leave a few days. Vacuum up. This will kill the fleas in the carpet and will thus lead to flea-free pets. Make sure to throw out your vacuum bag.
** The New Pet Protector Tag is proving to be very very effective in keeping pest away from your dog, hence preventing flea and Tick infestation. The Pet Protector has a 2yr Guarantee, unlike the shoo tag below.
**ShooTag> Is very effective in keeping pets away from your dog ,claims to also keep mosquitoes away as well, which is a good thing.
**Joy soap kills fleas. Just add a few drops to a mild shampoo.
**Dandruff shampoo makes an excellent flea bath.
**Awesome Flea Trap >Small white dish (they love white) a little water and a touch of Dawn dish Detergent, place it under a night light
**Fleas on your dogs: take a new spray bottle and fill half of it with apple cider vinegar and half with warm tap water. Shake well and spray on the dog’s coat. Rub it in good. No need to rinse, just let it dry, and use it daily or as needed

NATURAL HEARTWORM PREVENTATIVE:
Prescribed heartworm preventative is actually poison that goes into your pets bloodstream. why would you do that? The recent shut down of the makers of Interceptor and Sentinel has woke me up to the dangers of these medications. And we have chosen to go a different route. Here are some options:
** Garlic Mosquitoes and other insects are naturally repelled by garlic. You can feed your dog garlic daily to keep away heartworm infected mosquitoes. Dogs who weigh in excess of 50 pounds should be given 2 teaspoons of garlic daily. Smaller dogs can have no more than 1/2 teaspoon daily. Excessive amounts of garlic can be potentially dangerous for dogs, so consult a veterinarian about this treatment. Garlic should never be given to cats, because they have a natural sensitivity to it.

** Keep Mosquitoes away! Fleas and Heartworm will be eliminated!! just Add a few drops of essential oils such as lavender, peppermint, to 10 oz of water in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture each time your pet leaves the house,, you can add a few drops to your dogs collar.
**Lemon recipe is awesome, cut lemon into quarters, boil 2 cups water, wrap lemon slices in cheese cloth, tie off drop in hot water and steep over night, in the morning squeeze lemon, drain with cheese cloth into a spray bottle and walla Instant flea tick and mosquito repellant. spray on dog each time it goes outside or as needed.
