Rosemary Flea Dip

For puppies, kittens, dogs and cats

Place a soft clean towel on the bottom of the wash tub. The towel will help your puppy or kitten to sit or stand without slipping.

Pour the slightly warm or room temperature rosemary liquid into the wash tub.

Place your puppy or kitten in the tub and gently, thoroughly wash your little one in the herbal bath. Run your fingers through your little one's fur and gently massage the herbal water into her skin.

Once her fur is dry run a flea comb through her fur.

The rosemary flea dip is safe for daily use.

*Cautions

1. Collies (rough or smooth coat) and Shetland sheep dogs (Shelties) have an inherited sensitivity to rosemary. Using rosemary on these two breeds can lead to seizures. Do not use the rosemary spray or dip on collies and shelties.
2. Do not use the rosemary spray of dip on dogs with a known history of seizures.

Make sure you also address the root cause of your kitten's and puppy's flea infestation...

An Appropriate Diet To Prevent Flea Infestations

Fleas (and other parasites) are attracted to animals that have an acidic body pH.

The most common cause of an acidic body pH is a diet of highly processed food products:
  1. Dry pet food (kibble, biscuits) and treats.
  2. Canned pet food.
A species appropriate raw diet supports normal body pH and a healthy immune system. A raw diet, or fresh and gently cooked food diet is the body's primary defense against insect and parasites infestation.

Adding whole food supplements can also help protect your kitten, puppy, cat and dog. For example:

Fresh garlic can help adult dogs and puppies **older than** six (6) months of age, stay flea-free. For dosage, preparation instructions, breed specific cautions and more, go here.  Garlic is not for cats and kittens.

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) or coconut sap vinegar (CSV) can help balance body pH. You'll find more information and dosing instructions for ACV here, CSV here.

Kelp and good-source omega-3 fatty acids can also help. More information and dosing instructions here.
