Borax and H2O2 Bathing
Hello Mr. Ted, I have been reading up on all the remedies you have given the public reader through this great site. I have been extremely upset with the amount of money spent and the continuous desperation my poor girls face each day with these darn fleas. I have done it all! From paying a company to come a spray the yard, to bathing them with everything you can imagine, to cleaning and bombing the house, to cleaning their cages, washing the clothing,and bedding, to you name it, I have done it! lots of $$$$$$$ down the drain if you know what I mean. The latest I have started using has been the borax, purchased at Walmart for less the 3 dollars a box. I live in Florida where the weather is extremely hot most of the time and I own three female dogs: a golden retriever mix, a pure breed austrailian shepard, and my latest Chinese Crestad. It seems that one is always more infested then the other. I have spend hours washing them and taking fleas out with a hose. Can you please tell me how to use the borax with the Hydrogen Peroxide and if to use this, do I have to take the girls into my tub? Or is there a way to do this outside using the hose? Also, the same solution used in the tub is same one I would spray on them after the the bathe or should this been done days later. How long should I wait till their next bath? I have used the borax to just sprinkle it around the yard, it has kept the fleas down, but still lots remain on the girls. My oldest dog, the golden retriever mix has been losing her hair and has a severe skin infection due to these demon critters!!!! I hate them!!!!! Please HELP!!!!!!!
Thanks so much for caring enough for helping dog owners like us out here going crazy and going broke with it all!!!! Hahahahah. Look forward to hearing from you soon!!
