tails wagging and cats purring by getting rid of fleas and caring for dry skin.
Home Remedies for Fleas
• In the bag of your vacuum cleaner, place a flea collar. Fleas that you sweep up will be trapped within.
• If you don’t want to use an insecticide-based flea collar, active substances like cedar, lemongrass, rosemary, and marigold will discourage fleas rather than kill them.
• Flea-comb your dog well while he’s in the water, and give him a flea bath with limonene shampoo so the fleas drown.
• Add a teaspoon of vinegar to each quart of the animal’s drinking water as a flea repellent. It keeps pets free of fleas and ticks while posing no risk to the animal. Find out what else vinegar can be used for around the house.
Treatment for Bites and Scratches at Home
• Take your pet to the vet if he or she has been bitten or scratched badly. For minor wounds, use:
• 1 pint water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon Echinacea/goldenseal tincture should be used to clean out fresh wounds and punctures.
• Although hydrogen peroxide can be used to clean wounds, it can be harmful to delicate tissues.
• Abscesses are a common occurrence in cat wounds. Clean the abscess with Echinacea/goldenseal solution if it is draining. When dealing with an abscess, always use latex gloves.
Sore or Runny Eyes: Home Remedies
• A simple saline solution rinse can relieve moderate eye discomfort. Continue to use eye drops every four hours until the eyes are clear.
• Consult your veterinarian if the symptoms persist.
