Fleas & Ticks

REPELL Fleas & Ticks… NATURALLY!

Here are some suggestions that work:

  • Cut up 4 lemons, pour 4 cups of BOILING water over them, let set overnight, then strain and put juice into a plant mister type sprayer, then spritz your pets when going out and about. Put remaining juice in refrigerator.
  • Get a bandana — then either Peppermint oil or Eucalyptus Oil (you decided on what smell you like). Put a couple of drops on the bandana, then seal it in a zip lock bag overnite. Next morning tie bandana around dogs neck. Replace when the smell dulls. I make a couple at a time.
  • Diatomaceous Earth (DE) - Human/food grade only. Put into a baby sock, zip tie it shut, then LIGHTLY PAT under dogs chin /chest, by rump & tail, back of neck. Repeat every 2 wks or so, or after a bath or playing in water.
  • Use a flea comb to check for fleas and to nab any ticks. It also can nab deer ticks — comb around head, neck, ears, armpits, between back legs. If you catch one, dip comb in a jar of rubbing alcohol to kill them.
  • Give “BUG OFF” garlic tablets daily from SPRINGTIME inc. (www.springtimeinc.com). I do this along with one of the others. I give them from April 1st to November 1st.
  • FLEA FREE works well too. Just spray it on.
  • ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGAR - lightly spritz your dog

Raw Butcher Bones

Grundhofer’s Old-Fashion Meats
15449 Forest Blvd N
Hugo, MN
Phone: 651-426-2800

RAW butcher bones are great to help keep dogs teeth clean! Grundhofer’s Old-Fashion Meats in Hugo has them — 651-426-2800. DO NOT cook these. You want the big knuckle or shank bones. Give these ONLY to your dog if they do not turn into a Dr. Jeckyl (start growling, protecting it, dares you to take it or walk by it) over them. Give the bone in a controlled area so they can not go bury it where it will get diseased and contaminated. Do not cook any bone that you give to your dog. Cooking causes bones to becomes dry and brittle and have a greater chance of doing damage to your dog (creating a "log jam" at the end of their rectum or having a jagged edge on a piece of bone and cutting the throat or rectum on the way down and out). If you choose to use a raw butcher bone (it is great for keeping their teeth clean, the nutrients they get from it are great, they have a great time playing with it) they will have to be "let out" to go potty more often for 24 hrs after eating them. The bones are very rich and the average dog gets a bit of the "runs" from them. DO NOT get any smoked bones - they are too high in salt and nitrates and are bad for the dogs. DO NOT get any sterilized bones - they are too hard and can break teeth.
