Fleas! Yuck! No one wants fleas in their house. Once you get them they are HARD to get rid of! Here are some tips we have used that actually work! Use all these remedies simultaneously for maximum efficiency.
Get your cats on GOOD flea medicine- and keep them on it! Topical flea medicine such as Frontline is something you can get from your local store. Or an edible flea medicine such as Revolution, which is available by prescription from your vet are worth the money. These are the best ways to get the fleas off of your cats and keep them off. However, not everyone can afford these expensive meds or maybe you are looking for an alternative. If you’re broke buy dawn dish soap and Give your dog or cat a bath with dawn dish soap. It’s cheap yet effective and kills fleas. The flea medications don’t stop the fleas from biting YOU, but they will help prevent future infestations after you have taken care of this one!
Use “Precor 2000 plus” this is the same stuff used in topical flea medications. Spray your house with this. You will have to evacuate your house while it is happening, but it stops the fleas from reproducing!
