Garlic oil pills.  The critters hate the blood when you give your pet 3 mg for every 25 lbs. daily.  Try it over chemical products.

Be careful with that one.  Garlic is toxic to dog and cats both.

heres a reasonable article referenceing the toxicity.  I'm posting the link because of the color pictures:

remember on a per gram basis, garlic extract is up to 5 times more toxic than onion.

I remember when i was frowing up....our labs we used to give them (1) garlic pill a day when the flea season was high.

That was 25-30 years ago.  Funny how times change

I know of a few people that feed garlic cloves daily.  I have never heard that it really does anything much as far as a repellent.

 We have never had a flea problem so I never tried it myself.  When Tad joined our pack with some they left on their own (after a few weeks of a REAL FOOD diet  Cool) never taking up residence on the other dogs.

I've been giving it to both my dogs, with excellent results.  The small min-pin gets 1 in a cheese ball, while my 3 legged, Lucky gets 2.  Not a flea all year and it used to be a big problem.  I guess they would have to be allergic to make them sick, as I've been using this over chemical treatments for the season, after someone came into my store and bought a bottle and told me what it was for.  The Vet  business wouldn't want you doing this for obvious rea$ons.  For my guys, it's a great cure.  I haven't seen a flea all year, I check them all the time, they always find a way to wake up in our bed come morning Cool and it doesn't make them sick.  If you look at a can of dog food, garlic is in it. Huh

only problem is...the fleas would jump off the dogs or would not stay on them.....which can make it worse
