Nothing is worse than a dog (and a house) that's infested with fleas. But you don't want to resort to chemical treatments to keep the bugs away.
Both flea ointments and flea collars are laden with chemicals – they're designed to kill fleas, after all.
When our dogs get fleas, we'll do just about anything to get rid of them, but placing a chemical collar around your dog's neck can have consequences of its own. Over the last five years, 1,600 pet deaths were attributed to flea treatments, according to The Humane Society.
In addition, many of the ingredients in flea medications are known carcinogens in humans. If you have small children who come into contact with your pet, this could be of even more concern.
What if there was a way to prevent fleas without resorting to chemical-laden flea ointments and flea collars? And at the same time it's easy to make at home and your dogs will love you for it?
Well, you're in luck! The awesome Hayley Ryczek, the voice behind the healthy cooking and natural lifestyle blog, Health Starts in the Kitchen has a perfect solution for you!
