At least she doesn't roll in the excrement! I did have a puppy that used to do that
No Dottie, I haven't tried natural products to get rid of fleas, mites and ticks. I don't have a lot of confidence that they would work, but I could be wrong. She didn't have her annual jabs in November on the grounds that the basic ones last three years, nor did she get the Lepto2 or 4. The vet asked if she swims or goes into ditches, which she didn't, so he said no need for it. Since then the little mare has gone into ditches a few times - I could strangle her!
I have got some Thornit powder and rubbed some around the inside of her ears, I believe that gets rid of mites that cause grotty ears, hers are ok but a bit of residue around - that has gone after a few applications of Thornit. I have tried rubbing some into her skin (when I can find some under her thick hair) I think it does help but it isn't easy to apply on her and she doesn't believe in co-operating.
I will have a look at natural flea products - can you recommend any?
