I can use vinegar to kill fleas on my dog

I can use vinegar to kill fleas on my dog

Hello,

You can mix Apple Cider Vinegar or White Vinegar with Blue Dawn Dish Soap 50/50 and wash the dog in the mixture. Leave on for a few minutes before rinsing. This should kill the fleas on the dog.

 

 

I do want to warn you to be very carful when using this around the face and eyes as it can cause terrible eye irritation.

 

Please let me know if you you need further help.

Vinager with water half and half can burn the dog skin

Hello,

The Blue Dawn dish soap will do more than the Vinegar. Also washing too often will dry out the skin and take the natural oils out of the dogs coat. It is best to wash once month with the Blue Dawn Dish Soap and then use the Advantage topical as Candy suggested. This should help get the fleas under control. The Capstar will also greatly help with immediate killing of the fleas.
