In today’s video, you are going to learn a simple yet effective remedy to eliminate fleas on dogs and cats, the natural way.
Who doesn’t like summer? The sun and high temperatures motivate us to spend more time outdoors.
When it comes to dogs, however, the summer isn’t always fun. Have you ever heard the expression “dog days of summer”?
Some people believe that it’s because dogs are lazier in the summer since exercising while covered in fur isn’t easy while it’s hot.

Another summertime problem that can plague our pets has to do with fleas and ticks that attach themselves to our furry friends and spread diseases. Fleas can remain dormant for several months and appear right in the middle of summer.
Getting rid of these bugs isn’t easy. Fleas can even jump surprisingly far when they feel threatened.
There’s an extensive line of products made to get rid of fleas, but they only work when you choose the correct type according to your pet, the environment and how far along the infestation is. If you choose the wrong product, it could put the health of your little buddy at risk.
In today’s video we’re going to teach you a cheap, easy recipe, that you can use to get rid of the fleas and ticks bothering your pets. The ingredients are easy to find and make your animal’s fur super soft.
Here’s what you do:
200 milliliters of apple cider vinegar (6,7oz);
Half a teaspoon of sea salt;
Half a teaspoon of baking soda;
Two to three spoons of warm water.
First, mix the vinegar, salt, and baking soda and put them in a spray bottle. Next, add the warm water and shake the bottle. Spray the mixture on your pets’ fur, especially their ears, legs, and neck.
You can also comb through their fur to get rid of the bugs that the spray didn’t take care of. Brushing your cat and dog is also good for preventing fleas and ticks.
But, before you use this recipe, perform an allergy test to make sure you won’t be hurting your pet. Everyone reacts differently and animals are not an exception.
