Natural Treatments for Home and Pet

Fighting those pesky fleas and ticks on your dog or cat always seems like an endless job. Some pet owners use products available at pet stores, and others get medications from their veterinarians. Unfortunately, the oral drugs most vets prescribe can be costly, and some dogs experience vomiting and other side effects. Some pet owners choose topical chemicals that they apply monthly to their skin. These can also cause some adverse side effects in some animals. For pet owners who want a natural option to treat and prevent fleas and ticks, Suzanne has a few you may wish to consider.

Sometimes, it’s not enough to treat your pet. For example, if your pet has fleas, there are likely flea eggs and larva inside AND outside your home in the grass, carpet, and pet bedding. These areas also require treatment until several ‘life cycles’ has passed. For best results, always follow the recommendations of the product used as to frequency and amount

Diatomaceous Earth

Outdoor Flea Treatment
Diatomaceous earth products are registered for use against bed bugs, cockroaches, crickets, fleas, ticks, spiders, and many other outdoor/indoor pests. It is truly a fantastic product with many positive benefits. Today we are focusing on how it is used for pets.

When dogs ingest it on their food, Diatomaceous earth can eliminate roundworms, whipworms, pinworms, and hookworms in your dog. It can work in as little as seven days of daily feeding. But, to be most effective, you should feed diatomaceous earth for at least 30 days. That’ll make sure you get rid of all newly hatching eggs.

For your yard, Diatomaceous Earth will keep your dog from getting reinfected by eliminating parasites that may be there. Spreading this treatment directly on your grassy area where your dog spends time can eliminate many parasites in your yard. It can also be used on the entire yard. Inside your home, it can be sprinkled on the carpet and used in pet bedding to kill fleas and other pests.

The Life Cycle of Fleas

Flea Life Cycle
Fleas have four stages, eggs, larva, pupa, and adult. Depending on environmental conditions, flea eggs will hatch in one to ten days. However, it can take several weeks for them to emerge from the pupa stage to adult fleas. For this reason, it is essential to treat your yards, pet, and home on an ongoing basis.
