This is great, here in the south fleas are a big problem... how often should we apply this to our pooch to keep fleas away? Can it be used on cats as well?? Thanks!! ~Stephinie www.gypsyforest.com

Great idea. On a similar note. I have found that feeding a premium diet of proteins and whole grains makes a difference with fleas. In 12 years we have never had a flea problem or treated our dogs. I wonder if too much fat and fillers encourage a flea friendly pooch? We end up making dog food regularly for our pooch. It's not too costly, takes two minutes and we have few expenses with the vet bills, ect. Bet they smell great after this treatment!

Safe for dogs, cats, humans too. Apply once a day during height of flea season. It is completely benign so there is no worry of overdose. But as Paul say - feeding dogs well seems to also be quite prophylactic against flea infestations. We have a video coming very soon on homemade dog food.

How about blending it with the water, might bring out more active substances? Just thinking. Thanks for this, needed badly for my cat. Andy

My dog crawls through my rosemary bushes when the fleas are bad in the summer. This must be instinctual. Supplements the flea medicine I give him once a month. He smells good!

You seem to always be right-on-time with stuff, ironically i just found a stray dog on the street today, brought him home and BAM email shouting out for dog lovers!

Does this get rid of fleas, or just prevent them? We dont think anyone in our house has major fleas yet, but we did see one the other day, we will have to try this.

Sorry, I hadn't watched the video yet, it said it was preventative only. It looks great though!

To Paul Goldberg, Would you feel comfortable posting a recipe for the food that you make. I read the ingredients list on every dog food label. Through the years I have found that my dogs are sensitive to corn. Now that I have stopped purchasing any dog food containing corn their allergies have improved. I really don't like seeing all those preservatives and chemicals listed on the ingredients of commercial dog foods. Not having lots of time and being on a limited budget, I have not considered making my own dog food. However your comment - We end up making dog food regularly for our pooch. It's not too costly, takes two minutes and we have few expenses with the vet bills, ect. caught my eye and my interest. Please share your recipe. Thank you so much.
