Lemon spray repellent- try a fresh lemon. it’s a natural remedy that advises cutting a lemon into quarters, cover with boiling water, and let it sit overnight. the next day, spray the mixture on your cat or dog. make sure it does not get in his eyes, but do try to aim the spray at behind his ears, around and along the tail, and under his legs and paws. If your dog can’t tolerate spray, try rubbing the juice from a freshly squeezed lemon or orange on your dog or cat’s fur. Try to use fresh citrus and not citrus essential oil, which can be dangerous to your furry friend.

    Do NOT use essential oils on cats. They are very sensitive. If you plan to use them on your dog, do plenty of research about diluting them, etc. Essential oils can be very effective and they can cause harm if not used correctly.

    Hi. Thanks for the helpful hints. You just might want to be careful of suggesting that people use essential oils on their pets, especially cats, as they can actually be deadly for them.

    Thank you very much. After reading this article (& a few others) I used a Chinese medicated oil containing Eucalyptus and Citronella (Cang Moa Yew), and I have to say it does help repels the fleas. Thanks!
