Home Remedies for your Dog

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!

  1. 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……

  2. 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?

  3. 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.
