As I’m sitting down to write this week my excitement to share with you is bursting off my little keyboard. We mentioned last week how to do some Homopathic Hair Care and I want to build on that with some Doggie remedies . Doggies fur has sensitive balances just like our own hair and can get easily uncomfortable for our best friends . Fleas are one of my mortal enemies ! This summer we had a flea cleansing in my house , we have four dogs in our care . Besides consulting your vet and getting all that squared away there are some simple means to help give relief . Peppermint oil is a deterrent of bugs . I use an essential oil that’s safe to use externally and internally , please read product descriptions to know what is allowed for use . So take the oil and put a few drops on the dogs “hot spot “ . This makes the fleas not want to live on your dog , they smell good and bonus when your dog goes to lick their they will not want too because of the concentration of peppermint . Another good use is put it on cotton balls and place inside all your cabinets – roaches can come inside when consistent wet weather happens but they hate peppermint! You can also look up various recipes for a bedding spray to use on bedding & other surfaces . Baby powder is a cheap carpet powder that helps get rid of fleas and is safe to use around kids . Fun treats you can give the dogs to help replenish their coat is : over the counter fish oil vitamins, olive oil on dog food and scrambled egg whites . With these simple and affordable tips you both can have a fun summer free of fleas but full of great hair ….I mean fur ?
