A Quick Guide to Fleas and Treatments
We all have pet; a dog, cat or rabbit. Fleas come mostly during summer when there is a lot of heat and warmth. Moreover, since most of these pets roam around the house it means that, your home is no longer comfortable for you and your loved ones. You need to be able to get rid of them way before they start flying or increase in population.
The shampoo contains pyrethrin chemical that kills fleas, so you do not have to worry next time you see a flea latched on your pet. Another way is by applying a flea powder. In a ventilated room, wear gloves and spray your dog all over its body, but when it comes to the sensitive areas such as the eyes, mouth and ears, it is advisable to apply some of the spray on your hand then rub it around its ears, eyes and mouth.
Well, dog too are no exception, you can make your own medicated dip for your pet. Most flea latch around the neck area or the head of the dog.

Wash your dog in warm water, rinse it and dry it using a towel then apply a few drops of lavender oil on the tail and on the back. In case you notice any irritation from your dog, stop the treatment immediately. All you need to do is to soak your dog in a rosemary infused water and allow it to dry naturally.
