For the best effect
Once a dog or cat pick up fleas, it can be difficult to get rid of the infestation with natural flea remedies. A dog or cat will bring fleas into the home causing fleas and eggs to fall on the carpet, pet bed, and furniture. Wherever fleas land they can breed, so itâ€™s important to assume they are everywhere.Â Diatomaceous earth must remain in contact with the fleas to continue working effectively. The diatomâ€™s porous nature dehydrates the flea and needs to be dry while itâ€™s in contact with the fleas to be effective.
Keep your petâ€™s skin moisturised
If your dog has sensitive and/or dry skin, we recommend supplementing their diet with an edible oil such as Hemp seed oil. After about 2 or 3 days youâ€™ll want to bathe your dog. Itâ€™s recommended not to bathe dogs more than once a month, since it dries out their skin, it is best to use a soap-free or moisturising shampoo. Afterwards, comb through your dogâ€™s fur with a flea comb to help rid your dog of dead fleas.
Have patience with the process
You should treat your dogâ€™s environment with diatomaceous earth twice a week, leaving it on for about 1 to 3 days. Repeat this process for 2 to 3 weeks. Diatomaceous earth is not a quick fix. It will take time for the fleas to come into contact with the diatomaceous earth, and about 48 hours to dehydrate the flea it has come in contact with. The process may take up to three weeks, but itâ€™s efficient, all natural, and dog friendly.
