    Homemade Flea Repellent

    I've come across this site that has a homemade recipe for natural flea repellent, I thought I'd share it with you. It's at http://www.healthy-dogs.net/fleas.htm

    Thanks for the web site with the helpful tips. I do worry about the chemicals in flea control. I'm going to give the lemon in a spray bottle solution a try. It will definitely make them smell nice!

    When we first got Simba we used the Tea Tree oil in his puppy shampoo. It's natural and tear-free (doesn't mean not to be careful around the eyes, though) It worked like a charm! Only a few drop into the whole bottle of shampoo, and it lasted us for a long time.

    just want to add a good word for tea tree oil - we used it on Star when she had a really nasty hot spot caused by a tick dying in her side - it worked very well, I really think it helped her heal more quickly!

    Thanks for the info. I'm all for trying new stuff to get rid of fleas. They seem to have developed an immunity/mutation to Frontline and Advantage is not quite as potent to them anymore either. Where does one get Tea Tree oil?

    You can get tee tree oil in most natural food stores, camping supply stores and even some gorcery stores/walmart type stores.

    Edited to add that tee tree oil is good to keep on hand for any animal or person, it helps repel a lot of bugs, heals wounds, helps with skin problems, mast cell tumors, is a nice fragrant smell, I believe it helps clean too, etc...

    Yea, Tea tree oil is great. I use a tea tree oil & oatmeal shampoo on Bitsy. It really helps her allergies.
