8 oz apple cider vinegar
4 oz warm water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

Mix dry ingredients first then slowly add to wet as the vinegar and baking soda will react slightly. Be careful not to get in pets eyes.

Do you have to just use it on your dog or can you spray it on yourself an around the house? And is it safe to use on two day old kittens and their year old mother?

Tried this morning and although I didn't see the fleas drop off my dog dead, she did stop scratching within about two or three minutes.

It has to be apple cider vinegar people, white vinegar isnt safe for human or animals. Its best used for cleaning and disinfecting. ACV is totally safe to spray on urself, ur kids even newborn pups.

I used this yesterday but added conditioner cuz my dog has sensitive skin. Put soap on all over him 1st, then water & lathered him up, rinsed him, sprayed that on him let it sit for bout 5 mins put conditioner on wit the spray & more fleas com off him then Ive ever seen! Washed his bed & blanket & sprayed around the living room, furniture & all. Havent seen any fleas on him yet.

I have a question after mixing the ingredients how long can u keep it in a spray bottle? Does it lose its effect? And how much do u put on the dogs and cats? I mixed one bottle I have 6 cats and 4 dogs I still have half of it left. Is that ok or should I not have that much left? I wasn't sure how much to use my dogs are all under 20 pounds cats also. Please let me know about how much to use I use enough to wet the fur but not where it is dripping. Thank you for all the advice.

IF YOU PUT ONE CAPSEL OF VINAGER IN THERE DRINKING WATER, EVEYDAY WHEN THE FLEES BITE THEY DIE. AND VINAGER IS NOT TO BE USED ON CATS AT ALL.AND IT CAN HARM THEM DOGS,IT BURNS THIER SKIN. IT ALSO SAID IN MY BOOK,TO CUT A ORANGEIN HALF AND RUB IT ON THE DOG . THE FLEES HATE THE CITRUS SO THEY LEAVE THE ANIMAL ALONE.

PLEASE DO NOT PUT THIS ON YOUR DOGS!! Think about it the fleas are biting you dog, and the dog is scratching and biting. Therefore creating scratches, cuts, scabs . . . And what happens if you put VINEGAR or SALT on owies it FREAKING BURNS!! Come on now guys, people literally put salt on wounds in movies as torture, don't put your pup through any more pain than need be, they're already in enough pain from the pests. Just use soap! A good 'Dawn Dish Soap' bath is perfect, the soap literaly has comercials were its used on animals, the baby ducks covered in oil. I heard the blue one is best. The degreaser in the dish soap breaks down a barrier around the flea that makes them impossible to pick off. Give a good lather let it sit a good minute or so and rinse. And #2 biggest flea be gone, is VACUUM VACUUM VACUUM as many times as you can a day. Under the couches, on the couches. The vibration kills them. Empty the bag immediatly after vacuuming. Good Luck and remember PLEASE Dont Put Salt Or Vinegar On Your Dog When They Have Flea Wounds!!
