Whether they’re scratching or you are, fleas and ticks are unwelcome. Here’s how you can make fleas and ticks flee before they create an overly itchy situation that you can’t scratch.


Essential oils are key.



Essential oils like Cinnamon, Clove, Cedar Wood Lemongrass and Mint are great for pets and not so great for ticks and fleas, they’re all-natural repellants.

Since essential oils are quite potent and may overwhelm fidos’ or your felines’ sniffer, make sure the oils are diluted and opt for a ready-made flea and tick solution like Natural Chemistry Flea and Tick Squeeze On and Natural Chemistry Flea and Tick Spray for Dogs & Cats. An application of these all-natural flea and tick solutions are great to keep pets from itchy companions.



Wash regularly.



Giving Fido a weekly wash is a good way to prevent fleas and ticks from manifesting as it literally drowns them. Clean coats are not as welcoming to parasites as opposed to a dirty one as well. Try Aroma Paws Allergen Flea & Tick Repellent Shampoo to keep dogs flea and tick free.

For cats, you may have some battle scars to know that they do not like baths, but you can wash something else…their beds. Whatever your cat nestles on throughout the day, wash it regularly to keep it clean and free from ticks and fleas that may have begun nestling on it too.

As for those cardboard boxes, old towels, and mats furbabies like much better than their expensive beds? Change them out regularly too.


Guard them outdoors.



Pets will be pets and inevitably go outside. Their fur is basically a welcome sign for ticks and fleas, waiting in the grass, to latch on to. Arm them with a good flea and tick spray like Bobbi Panter Charlie Dog Shampoo & Outdoor Spray.  Dogs can roll in the grass and cats can stalk in it, blissfully unaware to parasites who are now repelled by their scent.
