The best natural ways to get rid of fleas on dogs also acts as the best natural flea prevention for dogs. To be honest, all the other ways are not very effective and keep you locked into buying repeat medication. Good for business, but not so good for your dog. Or you.
Natural dog flea treatment starts with looking for the cause, rather than just dealing with the effect – in this case the fleas. Fleas will only live, in large numbers, on unhealthy dogs. And in a dog with a badly compromised immune system, even one flea can drive them crazy with itching.
A healthy dog, on the other hand, may have a few fleas, but will be unaffected by them.
This means that dogs aren’t allergic to fleas. After all, they are common in all furry animals, to a minor extent. When dogs are intolerant of fleas, it means their immune system is shot to pieces.
And, like it or not, the fleas are doing a good job. They are clearing up all the toxins that are released through your dogs skin. Toxins that are typically found in commercial dog food and veterinary medications. The dog’s body can’t cope with this far higher than natural intake of toxins, and the first ways of elimination (urine and stool) can’t cope.
So the next place that the body chooses to eliminate toxins in everyone, not just dogs, is the skin. In us, it’s through sweat. Ever wondered why some people have more foul sweat than others? Not BO foul. More rotten foul.
Dogs don’t sweat, being at the carnivore end of the omnivores, so the toxins come out dry. This frequently leads to skin eruptions. But just plain itchy is the start.
Killing off the fleas, as is so common today, does nothing to address the cause and lowers the badly affected immune system further. Flea killers are pesticides, and neurotoxic ones at that.
So how do you go about setting the record straight? What are the natural ways to get rid of fleas on dogs?
First, start to feed your dog a quality, natural diet that is in keeping with their evolution. Most dogs readily switch over, as if to say, ‘what took you so long”? Some need a bit more encouragement.
In itself, that alone may solve the problem. In only a few days, it is common to see major improvement. Once you stop the daily source of toxins (present in every packet of commercial pet food, whatever the price, whatever the claims), your dog’s immune system improves and self healing starts.
Sometimes, this isn’t enough. Some dogs may need extra help. Getting good professional help with homeopathic treatment can support your dog’s improving immune system. It can also take your dog’s toxin elimination to a new level. As well as to remove any other deeply ingrained traumas from the past.
Exceeding your expectations is a common scenario when you address problems naturally, from the causative factor. Find out more about the natural ways to get rid of fleas on dogs, as well a wealth of other natural tips here.
