Recipe number one:
lemon slices – water.
Pint of water, boil with 2 lemons, slice them up though, let it stay overnight for absorption. Put it in a spray bottle ( plastic works really well). This mixture works really well on fleas, but not well on ticks, so
Recipe number two:
apple cider vinegar –
lavender or peppermint oil –
Put one half of cider vinegar into a plastic spray bottle and fill the other half with water, it stinks ( a bit), but works great. It works, its natural. You can add some peppermint oil to cover the smell a bit. Yeah, it will take a few day for your new stinky dog to smell fresh again, but hey, its natural and, you guessed it, it’s free. Telling you, works like a charm.
Here is a “Thank You” note from someone re the recipe :
“I just applied this on my 2 year old doggy, hated the smell but enjoyed the “game” of being sprayed outside, once I turned her on her back I could see the fleas congregating to the hairless part of her stomach and I could pick them off! What a great instant remedy, that is chemical free, cheap and actually works. This is how you get rid of fleas on your pet.”

A tip: during hot summer season make sure to leave a bowl fresh cool water for your pet, in fact leave a lot. For multiple pets leave a few, put some ice cubes in there, so its stay cool. Great hydration leads to great health for all.
