Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Fleas On Dogs

For most dog owners, fleas are a real problem. It is rather unfortunate that a lot of families report using flea control products on their pets. What these families fail to understand is that when they use chemical flea control products, they will also expose their children and other family members to toxic chemicals on a daily basis. In addition, their companion animal may also suffer from illness or may die as a result of chronic low-dose exposure to insecticides. If your dog has fleas, there are non-toxic alternative solutions that can effectively address the problem.

Home Remedies for Dogs With Fleas

Soap Detergent and Water:

Fill a pan with water and place a little bit of dish detergent and leave the pan in the middle of a flea-infested room with a lamp shining brightly on the setup throughout the night. This should be the only light source in the room, as fleas are attracted to the brightness. The unsuspecting pests will leap into the water and drown, as the dish soap prevents their escape.

Effective Outdoor Care:

To minimize the number of fleas able to enter your household, you can follow a few basic yard cleanup techniques. This includes properly mowing the lawn, trimming bushes and tall plants, as well as removing sand and gravel accumulations.

Boric Acid: 

You can use this substance to treat your flea-infested house. Sprinkle it on your carpet, upholstery, or on rugs. Leave it for a few minutes then vacuum it up. This substance can kill the flea larvae, but it is not harmful for your family or for your dog.


Mixing equal parts of white vinegar and water makes an effective dog flea spray bottle treatment, which is satisfyingly cost-efficient.

Apple Cider Vinegar: 

You can mix at least a spoonful of vinegar into your dog’s water. This will make their skin more acidic which repels fleas and other bugs. If your canine friend doesn’t like to drink water mixed with vinegar, you can use it as a flea spray.

Brewer’s Yeast: 

You can add crushed brewer’s yeast tablets onto your canine’s food. This will make your companion pet’s skin less enticing for blood-sucking pests. Remember to consult your dog’s vet first before administering this solution.
