Has anyone else tried this? I bought a Flea Treatment from the vets for Buster but it made his hair fall out. Not going to make that mistake again! so i bought some Virgin Olive Oil- a large bottle for £2.39 from old faithful Lidls. Was watching tv tonight with the pooches and noticed Buster kept biting his bottom. I had a closer look and he had two fleas. Little blighters! and poor Buster! So i ran a few inches of water and dunked him in. Smothered him in olive oil then rinsed it off using normal dog shampoo- how gratifiying seeing the little bodies in the water! Did Che has well while i was there and he had a few as well. Tomorrow the carpets will be cleaned and ALL the rugs etc. This is the first time i have actual had the fleas- It was a preventative measure before. It makes me feel dirty! So, does anyone else use Olive oil for this purpose? Someone also told me to sprinkle salt on the carpet before hoovering as the fleas dont like it. Not sure i'd go that far! they might want some vinegar or tomato sauce next. hahaha!
