There are a number of chemical flea treatments that work rather quickly and are easy to use, unfortunately, some pets and their owners are allergic to them and need to use natural flea remedies. Fortunately for both the pet and pet owner, there are a number of ways to get rid of fleas naturally. These remedies work very well for both dog fleas and cat fleas without any harmful side effects.
Getting Rid of Your Pet's Fleas
If your pet has fleas, the first thing you?ll need to do is wash all of your household bedding, rugs and furniture covers that your pet may have come into contact with. Next, you'll need to wash your pet using a natural shampoo such as Skin-eze Shampoo. Once you have shampooed your pet and lathered it up with the shampoo, rinse the animal off. An even simpler method is to simply spray your pet with Skin-eze Spray. This acts as a flea repellant.
Prevent Fleas Before They Bite Your Pet
A homemade flea trap can also be created that will serve as a natural way to get rid of those pesky cat and dog fleas. Fill a pan similar to a cookie sheet with water and place it under a light close to the ground. At night, the fleas will jump towards the light and fall into the water and drown.
Another good idea to prevent flea infestations is to keep your lawn cut short. The heat from the sun will kill any flea eggs before they have the chance to hatch. Also, keep your pets away from dark, wet areas where fleas are prone to laying their eggs and the conditions are ideal for hatching. By employing these natural flea remedies, you will not only get rid of any fleas your beloved pet currently has, but will prevent future problems with fleas from occurring.
