The animals that live inside our home are exposed to fleas and ticks. Having pets at home brings as a consequence those unwanted visitors that not only affect our dog or cat, but also us.
In addition, they can cause diseases in animals and people so you must extinguish them completely and forever.
Home remedies to eliminate ticks:
The places where we can find ticks in our pet are: behind the ears, around the anus or in the neck, every time your pet returns from the outside you should check it very well, since these insects reproduce very quickly .
Alcohol and oil: mixes two parts of alcohol (antiseptic) and a part of oil, soaks a cloth and passes several times on the tick until it comes off.
Citrus: boil water with a citrus (lemon, grapefruit) and apply it on the animal with a poker. Use a healing cream if the tick leaves a wound on your pet.
Apple cider vinegar: apple cider vinegar is very good for exterminating ticks. Mix in equal parts vinegar and water, wet a cotton or clean cloth, drain well and moisten the skin of your pet. You can do it as last rinse after the bath.
