got fleas?

Postby den mother » Fri Aug 19, 2011 9:23 am

I am wondering if anyone else is having 'flea issues' at their house?
Is there a 'flea outbreak' going on this summer?
Kind of like the 'bed bug' rampage that seemed to start last summer?
I have had a household of several cats and dogs for the past 16 years and we have not had fleas until now!

I've read that DeFlea is the best natural product to get rid of fleas but I don't know if it's available in Canada.It's at petco in the states though.To prevent fleas in the first place, mix lavender oil with water (ratio 1:4) and get a cloth-like collar and spray it on it and maybe on their bedding to.

I haven't heard of an outbreak. Do you use Advantage?

our vet said that this has been the worse flea and tick season for as long as he has been in the practice :?
Our baby boys first breath, took ours away.

I started spraying my dogs, cats and bedding with the lavender water. I also made up a mixture of garlic olive oil and brewers yeast and mix that into their food. Today, I will go to find cedar wood chips and make a bed with it.
I have not had to use advantage or anything like that-especially since most of my animals are hairless-and some have very little hair, too. I guess that is why I spotted the fleas so quickly.
No more grassy dog parks for awhile...
Thanks for everyones imput.: :D

I also have heard about the lavender oil and cedar wood but I don't think the garlic is safe for my kitty.
