Jul 1, 2014 - Last week I shared with you some natural tips on flea and tick prevention and care for dogs, this week we are focusing on cats
Meow! Our feline friends are more sensitive by nature, so we strongly recommend testing a small amount of product on your cat before a full treatment. We suggest the 4oz size of Pets + Home for proper application on cats. Because a flea on your cat means there are fleas in your cat's environment, it's best to take a holistic approach by treating your home and/or yard for fleas to prevent them from finding your cat. If your cat is fearful of spray bottles, you can spray into your hands and massage onto your cat.
Wondercide's natural flea, tick & mosquito control spray for pets + home is naturally formulated as a curiously effective, natural alternative to chemical pesticides for use on dogs, cats & home interiors. It's a preventative and treatment, all in one safe, effective spray.

9 Methods of Natural Flea Control For Cats -
Also, remember that if you have a flea problem, not only will your cat have to be treated for fleas, but your home, other pets, and possibly your yard will also have to be treated and made flea-free. Cleaning your cat's environment is not only a means of natural flea control, but is also an excellent method of flea prevention. Natural outdoor flea control methods can also be used to control fleas in your yard.If your dog cannot tolerate any kibble, I recommend researching and switching your dog (or cat) to a raw meat, organ and bone diet that their bodies are designed to eat and thrive on. (if feeding raw meat and bones is a new concept for you, please request a consultation with Christopher, from BarfWorld (use affiliate code #1079 when calling!), as there is a lot of conflicting and confusing information out there! Remember, flea problems do not stem from the presence of fleas, but from health related and environmental circumstances which enable to fleas to thrive and reproduce. They are opportunists, preying on the weak and unhealthy whose immune system is not balanced and functioning at full capacity. Dry flaky skin, constant shedding, scratching, chewing on its self reveals a general susceptibility in the animal’s immune system which in turn, provides the perfect environment for parasites. A great weapon in the battle with fleas is the Flea Comb. Removing and killing the adults (by drowning them in soapy water) can prevent a lot of future fleas being hatched. However, flea combing is best done on dogs with short hair and not a lot of undercoat. For repelling fleas and ticks, we recommend natural essential oils. Oils can also help soothe and heal irritated skin while boosting the immune system, strengthening the coat (no shedding!), the skin, and healing any current lesions or hot spots. For killing fleas and or ticks in your YARD, I recommend DE (diatomaceous earth) or Only Natural Pet All-in-One Flea Remedy made from diatomaceous earth and herbs that is safe for use on dogs and cats, as well as around the home.
