Flea Treatment for Dogs Recipe
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary OR 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 pint bottled or tap water
Note: You can often
find fresh rosemary in the grocery store, even off season.
Blend all ingredients
well in the blender. Strain liquid using cheesecloth or a
tea-leaves strainer (a regular strainer will let too many
large pieces through, which will clog up the spray bottle)
Pour mixture into
saucepan and head over low heat for 20 minutes. Strain liquid
once again and put into a liquid spray bottle once cooled.
To use: spray on
dogs, rubbing into coat (you do not need to rinse it off).
You can also spray dog's bedding and other favorite places.
Be careful around the dog's eyes, as it will bother them (and
it will go from being a fun thing since they are being petted
and rubbed, to a thing where they will run and hide when they
see the spray bottle!)
Note: Due to the
citrus, this flea remedy should not be used on cats.
