|Hey all, new to dogster and new (couple weeks) to exclusive raw. Loving the answers i'm finding on here, loving the raw though it is a lot of work! However having a major bug problem! Currently living in NC and I have never seen flies or ticks this bad. I've pulled 3 ticks off my Doberman this past week, and worse? she has a million bug bites you can see all over. I am a believer in not using topical or oral pest controls; I used to work in pest control and what people put on their pets is 50 times stronger than we used as treatment for fleas.
Anyhow, need to get the bugs under control holisticly. Done the research, oils of this and that, the lemon juice I will try, though that worries me for flies and ants? But curious about personal experiences with what has been successful for you. Bought a natural spray from the local holistic store the other day but they both got sick for a couple days as well, so I need to make sure those two things didn't coincide. (Just used it again today so we'll see.)
