If you have an outdoor pet, dog or cat, put some cedar shavings in its house. Fleas don’t like it. The Cedar shavings will help repel fleas while keeping the animal warm. Its better than old blankets, the blankets will get full of fleas and get wet too. Put a good thick layer in the bedding so the animal can bury itself in the shavings to keep warm. If it gets real cold where you live you really should bring the animal inside cause they get frostbite too. You can get the cedar shavings at any pet store. Cedar shavings are a natural way to prevent fleas however i dont think they are as effective as frontline flea medicine or any of the other brands of flea medications.
I heard somewhere a long time ago that if you give your dog one tablet of brewers yeast once a day it will repel fleas – a natural flea repellant. The reasoning was the odor that the dog gave off after eating the yeast repelled the fleas. I tried it along time ago on one of my dogs, this was before frontline was available and it didn’t work. Garlic is another natural flea repellent or so some people claim. I don’t know, I’ve never tried it before. I have heard it is dangerous to give a dog garlic because it is poison to their systems. I also heard that grapes, chocolate and onions were poisonous to dogs too.
Flea and tick season is here again. My dogs aren’t infested yet. I am going to treat them with Frontline plus like I do every year. I forget to use the flea medicine in the winter cause I don’t see the fleas on my dogs. however, this is not a good idea. Cause when you see a flea you are infested. Its best to treat fleas and ticks before you see them.

New Flea Medications – Vectra 3D
When I took my dogs to the vet last month, I wanted a flea medication I could use on both dogs. There is a considerable weight difference between the two cause my beagle is extremely overweight. My vet recommended a new flea med called Vectra 3D for dogs weighing between 21 and 55 lbs. It does the same thing frontline does …. repels and kills fleas, ticks and mosquitoes for one month. Its a topical flea treatment with an applicator which you have to apply in 3 areas back of neck under collar, middle of the back and base of tail. It remains effective after bathing and swimming. It kills 96% of fleas in 6 hours.
