    Hi ! Please look into using diatomaceous earth . This is an all natural substance that is safe to use around kids and pets . It is in powder form . I got the organic food grade kind off Amazon for about $10 ! Worked well and fast ! Also has tons of uses around the home and garden . Good luck !

    I second using DE. We use it outside because it's pet and chicken safe.

    Please becareful putting anything on your pet DE can cause skin irritation,should not be inhaled,eaten in excess,gotten in eyes/ears. Is Diatomaceous Earth Safe For Cats To Eat?

    Diatomaceous is an abrasive after all, and can cause damage to your pet’s digestive tract.

    It also has the potential to cause dehydration not just for your cat’s worms, but your cat as well.

    On top of this, we simply do not have very much information involving the safety of diatomaceous earth for cats.

    There have been no studies done on its effectiveness or safety as a treatment for external/internal parasites.

    For this reason, it is extremely important to only use this under a vet’s supervision. https://www.thehappycatsite.com/diatomaceous-earth-for-cats/ more info. DOSING https://elkhartferalcats.org/caretakers/de-parasite-control/

    My vet said homemade remedies aren’t always safe for pets because they can’t be specifically formulated. What has helped us tremendously is just keeping our yard free from fleas with these tips. https://chemistrycachet.com/proven-ways-to-get-rid-of-fleas-in-your-yard/
