Above is a rare picture of me and both our babies, Bear and Petunia (we're usually hard to pin down in one spot). My last post was about a rescue we picked up so she's staying with us too and as of last night, the flea situation is out of control!!! We've used a cream flea medicine before but it just doesn't do the job so last week we finally broke down and spent $180 to get them each a 6 month supply of the heartworm & flea pill trifexis but we're waiting on shipment and something went wrong with the prescription so that's another delay and now we've brought in a mystery dog and suddenly everyone is scratching so badly that my head is ready to explode!! This morning I got up and did some research and decided to try spraying everyone and everything with watered down vinegar and to salt the rugs. I've heard you can't mix flea treatments if you put your pets on pill form flea treatment so I'm hesitant to try anything that's not a natural remedy without consulting our vet first. Cross your fingers for me and hopefully the scratching party will ease up till we can get this fancy medicine to work. Anyone used vinegar as a flea killer before? Salt? Success or disappointment?
