Natural Ways To Combat Fleas On Dogs

Natural Ways To Combat Fleas On Dogs
If you're the proud owner of a dog, then there's a good chance you've dealt with fleas before. They're small, they jump, and they can cause your pet to itch like crazy— not great! If your dog has been scratching itself raw lately, it might be due to fleas. But don't worry, because we've got some natural ways to kill fleas on dogs that work like magic.


A flea bath

It is important to note that flea shampoos and soaps should be used only as a last resort. If you have not tried these natural remedies first, or if your dog has a severe case of fleas, then it may be necessary to use some chemicals. To bathe your dog with a flea shampoo or soap: • Fill up the tub with warm water. • Dilute the shampoo with water and thoroughly soak your dog's fur in it. • Rinse thoroughly with clean water; make sure there are no suds left behind on their skin or coat! Repeat as needed until all traces of shampoo are gone from their skin/fur


A flea comb

A flea comb is a surprisingly effective tool for removing fleas and their eggs from your dog's fur. To use it, comb through the fur on your dog's back in sections, parting the top layer of hair with one hand while using the other to hold and guide the teeth of the comb through it. This will pull any fleas or eggs out of those layers and reveal them. If you find any, simply dispose of them by squashing them between two fingers.  If you're doing this regularly enough to keep up with their reproduction cycles, you should be able to keep their population under control without resorting to chemicals or other harsh treatments. Use this method as often as possible—ideally every few days—to prevent an outbreak from happening on its own.


Dish soap method

Add some dish soap to a bowl of water and use it to wipe down all the areas where fleas might be hiding. This method is less effective than some of the other options, but it can still be helpful if your dog has just a few fleas. You can use any kind of dish soap you want—just make sure that it doesn't contain any chemicals that could harm your pet!


Lemon juice method

Lemon juice is a natural flea killer, but it can also irritate your dog's skin. If you're going to use lemon juice on your dog, avoid using it on puppies and take care not to get any in their eyes or ears. If you want a less messy way of using lemon juice, try dabbing some onto a cotton ball and rubbing it into your dog's fur.


Apple cider vinegar rinse

Apple cider vinegar is a natural flea repellent and an antiseptic, so it can kill fleas on your dog. It also serves as a natural deodorizer and disinfectant. You can use apple cider vinegar for many other things, like cleaning the house or washing your hair. It's safe for dogs to ingest in small amounts (1/2 teaspoon per 20 pounds of body weight), but you should never give it to your pet directly from the bottle due to its acidity level.



All natural methods can be used to clean up your dog and get rid of fleas. They are also much safer than chemical-based solutions that may cause allergic reactions or other health problems. Always consult with a vet before using any new products on your pet! If you’re looking for a natural remedy for your dog to help remove fleas, take a look at our store at Bubble Pawz.
