Blue Dawn Dishwashing Liquid
This is our Rottweiler/black lab mix, Kojack. When we first got him, he was so skinny you could see his ribs and was infested with fleas and ticks. He was 1 year old when we got him and has been the best dog we've ever had. He is my favorite child. About 3 years ago, we started having problems with him getting hot spots from what we think is an allergy to fleas. The first year, his hotspot got infected and we almost lost him but he's ok now. But about the Dawn. This year I was determined that we were not going to get any hotspots since last year he was naked from about his midsection down he lost so much hair. I had read on Pinterest (are you seeing a trend here?) about a recipe for a homemade flea shampoo that fleas just jump off the animal and it's ok to use on cats or dogs. It's 1 cup blue Dawn, 1 cup vinegar or apple cider vinegar and 1 cup water. You pour this mixture over the animal and scrub it in. You let it set about 5 minutes while trying to keep the animal in the tub. Then rinse. I did this and then used just the Hartz flea drops that are about 5$ at Walmart every 3 weeks. NO HOT SPOTS!!! It's amazing! I used the Dawn mixture on the cat also. Every other year I have tried commercial shampoos and got nowhere. I know I posted earlier about the Dawn Platinum but for the animals you have to use the blue Dawn. Dawn is just good all around. Anyway you look at it.
