Yesterday we talked about treating your dog’s mild case of fleas. What if your dog has a much more serious case of fleas or other parasites? If that is the case, put 4 drops of cedarwood or lavender oil directly on a piece of cloth as we discussed yesterday and rub the material together to spread the oils before you put it on the brush. Now brush your pet and rinse the brush several times with plain warm water as you go.
If your pet has a wound, bathe the area in water mixed with thyme or lavender oil. You should use 6 drops of either one of those oils to a half gallon of water. The essential oils will help to clean the sore spot because they are natural antibiotics and disinfectants. Of course, your pet will probably lick the wound too but he won’t be ingesting any unnatural substances.
