Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar Flea & Tick Remedy For Dogs And Cats

Have you read the warning label on the packaging of your flea and tick treatments? Those are some pretty scary side effects. It’s no wonder so many dog and cat owners are looking for more natural ways to fight off those pesky mosquitoes, fleas and ticks.

Here’s a homemade spray that you can whip up in your own kitchen. You probably have the ingredients in your home right now. If not, time to go shopping! (Don’t forget to pick up a bone for your pup.)

You can use this potion as you would an over the counter flea and or tick spray. You can treat bedding and spray it directly on your dog’s fur. Obviously be careful to avoid the face and eyes like you normally would. This spray is natural and not toxic so you can use your hands to massage it into the fur so it can reach the skin beneath.

Here’s your Apple Cider Vinegar Flea And Tick Remedy Recipe recipe:

8 oz apple cider vinegar

4 oz. warm water

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

First you put the dry ingredients into a spray bottle and then slowly add the liquids. You’re going to get a reaction, so do it over the sink. Always avoid the eyes when spraying vinegar on your pet. Be sure to note the shelf life of your apple cider vinegar so you can mark the spray bottle with your own expiration date. Store it in a cool, dark area. Spray your pup once a week or when your dog starts scratching and don’t forget to work the solution down into your pets skin.

After you give it a try, come back and tell us how it worked and what you thought of the spray.
