 Getting Rid of Fleas the Natural Way

Keeping the above in mind and helping you curb your expenses; the following natural ways of getting rid of fleas can be opted.

  • Nothing Like A Good Old Bath – Whether you prefer flea products or natural remedies to treat fleas, giving your pet a bath is a must. Infect, it is a necessity. Bathing your pet at least once a week helps keep his fur in top shape and also washes away fleas that cling onto the fur (that’s if your buddy has fleas, of course). Though baths don’t normally get rid of 100% fleas, they are pretty effective.
  • Brush Fur Using A Flea Comb – Another natural way of brushing fleas away is to use a flea comb. These teethed combs help in the removal of fleas from the pet’s body. Furthermore, flea combs work better after bathing your pal because the wet fur helps in fleas dropping off easily. Moreover, flea combs should be used at least three to four times at once for better results.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse – After bathing your pal, an apple cider vinegar rinse is something pet parents can opt for. Apple Cider Vinegar balances your pet’s pH and that’s something fleas loathe. So, rinsing your pet with Apple Cider Vinegar after its bath can help flea fleas away.

Here’s how you can make the Apple Cider Vinegar rinse:

  • Mix 4 ounces of warm water with 6 ounces of apple cider vinegar.
  • Add ¼ tsp of sea salt and shake the contents thoroughly.
  • Spray the liquid all over your pal’s fur, excluding the eyes.
  • Add ½ tsp (per 25lbs) of this solution to your buddy’s meal every day.

While getting rid of fleas in your pet is important, taking measures to keep your house environment clean is equally important too. Ensure that you vacuum thoroughly and do whatever it takes to keep your home flea-free. This will go a long way in preventing flea re-infestations in your buddy and at the same time, protect you as well.

Home Remedies for Allergies in Dogs

We all know that some point in our pet’s lives they are bound to fall sick and we as pet parents can only help in one way, and that is, look for remedies to stem the flow of the illness. It is always a painful sight to watch our furry canines suffer from problems and it is imperative for us pet parents to seek quick solutions. One such issue that affects a large chunk of dogs is allergies. These allergies can be very upsetting and extremely debilitating. There a quite a few ways to treat allergies but if you’re one of those parents who prefer home remedies instead of drugs and steroids, then read on.

Allergies in Dogs: Home Remedies

Below are a few effective and efficient home remedies for allergies in dogs. Go through them carefully before selecting any one for the treatment of allergies in your furry buddy.

Aloe Vera

A single leaf of an Aloe Vera plant contains antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties that make it the ideal cure for treating burns, hot spots, itches, rashes, etc. To treat allergies in dogs, apply the Aloe Vera gel in and around the affected areas (including itching areas). The gel contains a cooling effect that will help reduce discomforts and aid in the healing process.

Note: Do not use the whole Aloe Vera leaf (use the gel only) as it contains saponins (an orange or yellow substance found in the rind), which is a laxative and can cause sickness to your dog.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Another effective home remedy for dog allergies is Apple Cider Vinegar. The vinegar can be used for rinsing purposes to help diminish allergies and skin rashes. Rinsing your dog’s paws with Apple Cider Vinegar will help eliminate some pollens and allergens that accumulate on the pet. If used as a spray, it should be sprayed directly on the affected areas.

Note: Do not use Apple Cider Vinegar on open wounds and bites.

Chamomile Tea

One of the best skin allergy treatments for dogs is Chamomile tea. It contains a natural disinfectant that soothes the skin by erasing bacteria and yeast. Furthermore, Chamomile tea does a wonderful job at curing an upset stomach, anxiety as well as gas problems. So get hold off a Chamomile plant and make some Chamomile tea for your allergic munchkin.

Coconut Oil

The one good thing about coconut oil is that it gives multiple benefits. Coconut oil contains lauric acid that helps in the decrease of yeast production as well as reduces allergies. It can help suppress inflammatory allergic responses by combining coconut oil with fish oil. Moreover, coconut oil has antibacterial properties that reduce itchiness and boosts the immune system by catering to digestive issues. The usage of coconut oil can be used simply by mixing a portion of the oil in your dog’s food.

Naturally Healthy Diets

A simple yet effective method of treating allergies is by providing your pal naturally healthy foods. Many dog diets have added preservatives and additives that don’t gel well with your dog’s immune system and can cause issues if you don’t opt for a change in diet. Feeding the proper diet with correct ingredients and nutrients is essential in giving your pet a healthy and disease-free life. Make sure to consult a vet before changing your Fido’s diet.

Oat Baths

One of the most efficient and natural home remedy for curing skin allergies is oat baths. Oat baths are generally very soothing and bring about a relaxing feeling to your dog. It contains necessary ingredients that help in relieving itchiness in canines. To give an oat bath to your dog, all you have to do is either boil some oat straw or grind the oatmeal before mixing it in your pal’s bathing water.

Note: Oatmeal is a rich source of carbohydrates that yeast thrives on. Thus, opt out of an oat bath if your buddy has even a mild yeast infection.

While there are many other ways to treat allergies in dogs, the above six remedies are perhaps the best natural methods to treat allergies at home. And if you’re skeptical about using any method, you can always ask your vet before going forward.

Chlorine presence

Chlorine is a chemical that is always found in the swimming pools. Although it might not affect humans at a severe level, but, dog’s skin and body parts are much more sensitive to it. Dog’s ears, eyes and nose get highly effected and may cause irritation, red eyes and ear infections. Generally, ear infections are a result of more water and dampness due to floppy ears.

No matter how much you think your dog is clean, there are always certain germs residing on his body, especially fur coat and the skin. The insects that annoys and lives on these dogs, leaves fecal matter on their skin. This fecal matter infects the pool water and may cause harm to human health.

Shedding of Dog Hair in the Pool

Shedding of Dog Hair in the Pool

Almost all the dogs shed their hairs especially long haired dogs. If the dog’s hair gets shed inside the pool, it might clog the pool’s drain and make the water dirty. It is a better option to trim your pooch’s hair from time to time to keep the pool water clean and avoid clogging.
