Flea control is very important to the health and well being of your dog or cat. Flea bites cause discomfort and irritation, and they are responsible for a skin condition known as flea allergy dermatitis. In addition, fleas often bring other scavenger friends like tapeworm. Fleas can quickly infest your home, and will even bite toxic humans.
So, what I have found is get your pet healthy and the fleas don’t like it. A highly nutritious natural dog food will definitely help eliminate problems. If that doesn’t do it for you, increase your nutritional supplementation.
Also, check labels for any preservatives for anything you feed your pets. If your pet is drinking chlorinated water use a good pro-biotic daily
For the home and sleeping areas use Borax 20 Mule Team laundry detergent. Sprinkle on carpets and pet’s sleeping area then vacuum up a few hours later. Also, another source for skin allergies is cedar beds, if the pet has a small bite or scratch the cedar oil is very irritating, as horse owners know with cedar shavings on horses legs.
For the humans that get bit try drinking Redmond Clay water twice a week, decrease your sugar and breads, increase your root vegetables.
Remember, fleas are scavengers, they only go after the weak.
