Get Rid Of Flea And Tick using Apple Cider Vinegar
Being a pet owner can be a tedious task because it is also like you were taking care a little baby. One of the major problems a pet owner encounter is the flea and tick. Through the time they have discovered that apple cider vinegar has been affected in getting rid of these insects in the body of your pets. Because of its natural component, it is safe to your pets compared to the chemicals you can purchase in pet stores.
Here are some tips you can follow in making sure you are doing the treatment of tick and flea correctly:
1. Use apple cider vinegar (ACV) to remove the tick and flea from your pet.
Create the ACV solution by mixing 1 quart of warm water, 1 cup of ACV and 1 ounce of Castille soap. Never apply ACG directly to the skin of your pet. Dilute the solution and put it in a container. Make sure you wear gloves and long sleeve clothes because the tick and fleas can also bite humans so it is better safe than sorry. Cover the whole fur of your pet using the solution protecting the eyes.
Use your fingers to massage the solution all over the skin of your pet. Let it sit for up to 10 minutes and then comb the fur of your pet using a flea comb. Do this all over the body and then check the inner part of the fur for some tick and flea that are still sticking on the flesh of your pet. Once you’re done you can now rinse your pet with clean water. Do this cycle until see no more flea or tick lives in the body of your pet.
2. Get rid of the flea and tick in your home
Always make sure that your home is free from flea and tick because it will be a waste treating your pet against the insects but your house is full of them. Make sure to clean the beddings with warm water at least every other day. Vacuum and clean your carpets and curtains which might be a home for fleas and ticks. You can also try making a natural spray which is composed of ACV, water, lemon juice and witch hazel. Spray this in your house including the areas where your pet usually goes.
3. Prevent future infestation of these insects
Don’t forget to practice step one and two always to prevent tick and fleas living in your home. You may also add ACV in your pet’s drink. It would make the skin of your pet smell like ACV with regular drink and this will make the flea and tick leave its body.
Simple things yet it can deliver great results for your home and your pet if practiced properly.
