Introduction: Natural Remedy for Dogs & Fleas
Hello, My name is Victoria. First time doing this, but I'm doing it for the pooches out there. If your using the stuff you buy from your vet(advantage and all those flea potions out there), Please STOP, they are not good for your dogs or cats for that matter. Research it for yourself don't take my word for it. I have been using this remedy for about 5 years now on my dogs and cats, and it's awesome:):) This is going to be short because there are only 2 ingredients. You can also use to bath the pooches in:) Here it goes:Buy some organic coconut oil(I buy the big container because it lasts longer, usually on E-Bay)
Buy some Texas Cedar Oil(you can only purchase the true oil over the internet)
When you've purchased both these items, Take a small scoop(just enough to oil your dog down) of the organic coconut oil, drop two drops of cedar oil onto the coconut oil, rub your hands together over the top of your dog(this is to melt it in your hands). Then rub your dog down with it, from head to toe, in their ears, toes, bellies and so on. You get the idea. Give that dog a massage, all over their body:):) At first your pooch may not like it, but believe me they will eventually come to you to have it done. I usually do it after they eat in the am, then give them a treat for being so good and waiting their turn. They smell like a puppy tree. This repels all bugs even bees, they don't like cedar oil. I also put cedar chips in their dog beds and it keeps all the critters out. I have no fleas in my house either. This also conditions your dogs coat and skin(bonus):):) The other way to use the cedar oil is to mix 1/8th cup of cedar oil with a 15oz bottle of baby shampoo(any kind is fine), and bathe them in your mixture. I have only purchased the cedar oil 1 time, it last a long time due to you only use a few drops each time and I use it on both dogs every day less in the winter, about 1 time a week. I only bath them 1 time a month. People this REALLY does work and it will save you a lot of money, and the best part is it won't harm your dog:):):) it only helps them :):):)
