Top 5 Effective Home Remedies For Dog Fleas

Fleas are a common health disease which is mostly found in pet animals especially among cats and dogs. It is believed that fleas are difficult to kill without the use of chemicals and injections but this is not true as they can be destroyed completely using home remedies. Here are some of the best home remedies for fleas that have proved to be highly effective in killing or destroying fleas from its root cause.

Fleas are wingless insects that live on a wide variety of mammals, particularly the domestic dogs and cats. The dog flea can be troublesome, and even though they feed on the blood of dogs fleas, they can also bite humans. The reason for their massive presence in your house is the fact that the eggs of fleas can get dropped anywhere inside your home remedies. These eggs go to through four stages: embryo, larvae, pupa and eventually into fleas. However, the most irritating thing about fleas is that the eggs can remain dormant for a year. So, you need to cautious and clean your home remedies frequently once you have destroyed dog fleas.                                        
Talcum Powder

Talcum Powder Smothering the fleas so they have difficulty breathing kills some, and makes the others flee (sorry, pun intended). You can use talcum powder (an unscented variety, baby powder is good) and rub it well into your dog's fur. You can brush it out after an hour or two.


Use of drag detergent surprisingly removes drags even when left it for one day or more. It proves to be the most effective method because it always results in little buggers to float at the bottom and after this, comb must be rugged roughly on the affected areas because it makes the fleas to jump inside the water.


yogurt is a healthy treat for your dog fleas. Just as with humans, the live acidophilus in the yogurt keeps the good bacteria in your dog's intestines in balance, so that bad bacteria is swiftly knocked out. If your dog is on antibiotics, a little yogurt will also help keep yeast infections at bay (a common side-effect of antibiotic treatment). You can also give your dog acidophilus pills -- wrapping the pills in bacon is strictly optional.

Essential Oils

Essential oils are used in many of the natural flea control treatments and products I've featured above.You can also use them yourself to create home-made potions that use their natural properties to fight fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and more. The most popular choices for flea control are Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Peppermint, Cedarwood, Citronella, Lavender and Tea Tree Oils. Mix a few drops of the essential oil of your choice into your dog's bathwater. Be careful to make sure he doesn't get it in his eyes, or drink it though.


Ammonia is a very useful chemical that plays a significant role in the complete removal of fleas from the body of the pets. Ammonia is a chemical which contains both nitrogen and hydrogen contents that has an ability to kill the fleas and germs completely from the body of the dogs and other pet animals.
