A friend recently sent me a list of several home remedies for various things. The first three had to do with dogs, so I’ve copied them below. I don’t know if any of them work, but if any of you have tried any of these and want to vouch for them, please comment below.
Eliminate ear mites. All it takes is a few drops of Wesson Corn Oil in your cat’s or dog’s ear… massage it in, then clean with a cotton ball. Repeat daily for 3 days. The oil soothes the cat’s skin, smothers the mites, and accelerates healing.
Kills fleas instantly… Dawn Dish washing Liquid does the trick. Add a few drops to your dog’s bath and shampoo the animal thoroughly. Rinse well to avoid skin irritations. Good-bye fleas.
Rainy day cure for dog odor: Next time your dog comes in from the rain, simply wipe down the animal with Bounce or any dryer sheet, instantly making your dog smell springtime fresh.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Jeannie—-you are correct about the chemicals….PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT use the dryer sheets on your pets ! I don’t even use them myself in the dryer….but they should ABSOLUTELY NOT be used on any pet !
Also, do NOT use CORN oil….use Olive oil—-cats and dogs should not consume anything made w/ corn—–even in their ears !!!!! OR you can use colloidal silver—-that is actually the BEST to use—-if has a natural antibacterial effect and it will kill the mites——if you want, you can use it in combination w/ the olive oil—-the cs first, then a little of the Olive Oil……
I thought the chemicals in dryer sheets are poisonous to dogs. Wouldn’t it be possible for them to ingest the chemicals when grooming themselves?
I’ve tried rubbing a dryer sheet on my dog when he comes in from the rain (actually I used 3 of them). It worked pretty well. In fact the scent lasted for several days. It also works as a quick “deodorant” when you are having company and your little guy is in-between baths. I’ve never rubbed it on him. I just run it lightly over his coat and I don’t use it on his head.
