A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was looking for a natural way to treat our dogs for fleas. You can read about it here. Well, I bought the Diatomaceous Earth and put it on the dogs. None of the dogs seemed to have a negative effect from this but it didn’t work entirely. We did notice that the fleas were not as bad as they had been but they certainly weren’t gone.
We also had to reapply the product every 3 days or we saw a invasion of the fleas again. Last year we were using Frontline and it alone did not get rid of the fleas. We were having to give Capstar at least once a week on top of the frontline. So we went back to using the Frontline and the Diatomaceous Earth as well. Mike now gets about 3-4 fleas a day off of Daisy. The boys don’t seem to be bothered as much as Daisy is.
We still have fleas and are waiting for the Frontline to kick in. I would love to have more input on what works for you if you use a natural product for the fleas. Daisy is just miserable. Wouldn’t you like to see this little princess happy?
