Any shampoo will kill fleas,Brewer's Yeast(with or with out Garlic) has always worked for me I don't like using chemicals on my dogs at all.

Thanks people. And bubbad I've just done a bit of research into that brewers yeast. Sounds great so I've just ordered us some. Hope it will keep the nasy bugs off my lil baby xx

Yep Bubbard we give the girls a clove of garlic each a day and yes me harping on a vinegar and water squirt. Never had a problem.Citrus as well - if you squeeze a couple lemons or oranges and a little bit of water then whipe them down.

I still maintain that fox poo works best!! My hound stinks to high heaven this morning, and that's after a bath 2 days ago, fox poo has a lingering scent, no fleas on my hound.!!

I've not heard the brewers yeast one either, going to look it up. It might smell a bit better than Bella's self prescribed cure. In saying that her odour will keep the in laws away, so it's not all bad.
