In any form of life wherever there is a problem, a solution or a cure if you want to call it that is never too far away. This same principle can be used when it comes to animals Specifically, in this article we want to highlight the list of the Best Essential Oils For Fleas.

Fleas for those of you who are pet owners would naturally know the issue of fleas is prominent with cats and dogs, which can be a nuisance for animal and animal owner alike. Just like with humans, it also applies to animals when using certain products, in this case for treating fleas.

Just some of the oils to avoid when using essentials are tree oil, clove oil and pennyroyal oil. Again just like with humans who can be harmed, if they use the wrong substances, animals are no different. Animals have lost their lives as a result of the use of oils, so to use the oils carefully in sensible amounts, is not only just a case of common sense, it’s case of potentially preserving the safety of an animal or animals.
 

In regards to the whole issue of oils, one should take into consideration that cats are more sensitive to EO’s than dogs, also they like to lick any smelly thing you put on them, so, for this reason, it’s essential to be more careful with cats than dogs.

It’s also worth noting that dogs naturally are animals that rely on scent, you could call them scent orientated if you like. With this in mind, a dog will know which oils are bad for them and which aren’t, something which a cat in its nature can’t do.

Although a dog may react better to oils than cats due to their sense of smell, again please be mindful of using fewer oils for animals than for animals than what you would humans. A dogs smell is approximately 20 times of humans.

As with anything in life, there’s always a way to prevent something. In the case of fleas, one should consider adding garlic to their animals diet. As is well known that fleas eat blood, but what might not be as well known is that those same fleas don’t eat garlic.

To add garlic into your pet's diet could be a challenge, but to integrate the garlic into your pet's diet doesn't mean that drastic measures have to be carried out. As with humans a way to get an animal to eat the garlic would be to mix some garlic in the form of capsules into food that they regularly have is one potential way to get your pet to eat the food, with out too much difficulty.

Please be wary that for a cat and a dog the dosage would naturally be different, another flea deterrent is cider vinegar. This deters fleas and improves skin and coat health.

The five EO’s Lavender, Thyme, Citronella, Cedarwood, Lemongrass, but other methods outside of the oils are arguably just as important.
