Getting Rid Of Fleas Cats

I had a cat used the apple cider vinegar on. Got sick. Took to vet and they said it had no fleas on it at that time. Later when talked to them it was covered. It seemed the only thing the ACV did was get them drunk, they sobered up and back. I got 20 to 30 cats so I got fleas. They was in the house biting me. I sprayed different poisons, some was old and 2 was new like 5 times, Black Flag and stuff, still the fleas. Used DE as put all around and in a few days fleas gone from me. Cats still got fleas, using the DE on and Lemon’s boiled, steeped spray. They are still having fleas. Try’d all natural collars and still fleas. Try’d a few poisons as the cheaper spot on stuff, seemed to make the cats too supersensitive to fleas and they chewed themselves up. Have not try’d Bio-spot yet but will. Problem is you see all these comments on everything and as someone would say this was bad makes you wonder if they are not doing that for the expensive companies on purpose so people run to this outrageous priced stuff. Still heard stuff on that too, true I would not know. I’ve had problems as burning the neck with collars even the natural ones and the Hartz spray and Sergents cheaper brand spot on is where I saw the cats chew themselves to pieces. Just have to do the best I can, 20 to 30 can barely afford the food these day for them. But ACV doesn’t work and I did not see the Nematodes bio-organisms for the ground work. Do DE and Lemon spray and experiment from there. The Soapy/water alunaman pie pan does work, I’ve seen that but you got to watch the cats they try to drink that too.

I’m not laughing at your situation , but when I read what you said about your dog smelling like a pickle I about fell on the floor laughing so hard , I’m still having a hard time typing this without LMAO . AGAIN PLEASE EXCUSE MY IGNORANCE because I can sympathize with your situation . I am truely an animal lover , cats , dogs , birds . We are very clean people , but at one time , we had fleas so bad I had to call an exterminator to get rid of them . He used something that had IGR its a growth inhibitor for fleas , it worked extremely well . All of this is supposed to be safe for both , humans and animals . He even said they have a spray ? or something to use on the pet(s) to continue keeping your pet(s) free from fleas . I didn’t buy or try it yet but , I think I’m going to have to – the kids ( my 2 cats ) are being eaten alive and I’ve tried frontline , hartz and the other big name treatment with no luck . The treatment he used inside killed the fleas we already had plus new ones the cats would bring in from outside . It’s been over a year and , knock on wood , no fleas inside – but my kids need something . I use about a tablespoon of Adams flea shampoo and about an inch of water in the canister of my upright when I vacuum for preventive maintenance . I have found that this kills any fleas once they go into the shampoo mixture after being sucked up into the canister . Alot of people vacuum then empty the canister into the trash , well , guess what ? If you do this you are enabling the cycle of life for the fleas that you just vacuumed up – they will find a way to get out of the trash can . The only downside to doing the vacuuming with the shampoo/water mixture is , your canister will have the smell of the mixture in it after you are done – even after you clean it . When I finnish vacuuming , I empty the canister outside in the yard – it’s just hair , dirt , dead fleas ( if you have any ) and water then I wash it out . Just be carefull not to lower the handle of your vacuum to low – remember you have a little water in your canister now . People are probably going to think I’m crazy when I start laughing if someone asks me if I want pickles on anything , hang in there cuddles – love and hugs my furry little friend .

Running a fine-toothed comb through the hair of a cat is effective in eradicating fleas on cats. To successfully get rid of the fleas, the flea comb should be dragged slowly across the hair but as close as possible to the skin. It is also critical to combine the flea comb with lemon juice so that as you comb through the hair you leave behind an overwhelming smell of the lemon which helps to deter the fleas. The combing should be focused on the hiding places of fleas, such as the groin, base of the tail and armpits of the cat. You should also have a bowl of soapy water into which the fleas are drowned as they are removed from the cat’s hair.

A bath or spray of apple cider vinegar has an overwhelmingly foul smell that scares away fleas and is one of the best flea treatments for cats. To relieve your cat from fleas, mix apple cider vinegar with water in the ratio of 2:1, shake well and add to a spray bottle. Applying the spray on cats or kittens will force the fleas to jump off the pets. You may also drench your pet’s coat with the solution every day for 3 days and see your pet relieved of flea infestation. Apart from apple cider vinegar, you may also use cider chips to keep the fleas away from your cat. Just add some chips on your cat’s bedding and around outside spaces and you will repel the fleas.

My daughter brought a kitten home that the lady neglected to tell her was infested with fleas. I came home within the hour and could see them crawling on the kittens nose! It was horrible. Straight to the vet because I was worried about using a treatment as he was only 9 weeks. The vet said due to the severity, use Frontline. We treated him and our 2 other cats(as a precaution) and the fleas were gone within 36 hours and we haven’t had a problem since. On a side note, one of our other cats was bitten by one of the fleas. He developed Hemobartonella. It is carried by fleas from one infected cat to another. He passed away 3 weeks later from the disease. So, be wary when your cat has fleas. If they become withdrawn/not eating/drinking, get them to the vet ASAP. We did, and spent about $600 trying to save him with steroids and antibiotics and he passed away anyway.

Most flea products will kill adult fleas and stop them laying more viable eggs. Only 5% of the flea population actually lives on your pet, so if you are seeing 5 fleas, it means that there is another 95 fleas living in the environment.  You are only seeing the tip of the iceberg. The tiny eggs, larvae or pupae live in the environment, commonly concentrated around resting areas. This means there are usually plenty of new fleas to replace those fleas on your pet that are being killed by your flea product. In addition, many products take hours or days to kill each single flea, so you can still see up to 20 fleas on your pet even though the product is working. Check out this video of the flea life-stages.

Adult fleas will lay eggs in your cat’s bedding, deep in the carpet, and almost everyplace your cat frequents, so you won’t be able to get rid of the entire population of fleas by simply combing and washing your cat. You will need to be sure to also clean and treat the household and yard when fighting fleas. Cedar and diatomaceous earth, for example, can be used in the home to repel fleas from areas where your cats sleep.
