I just made a talc by blending oatmeal, baking soda, rosemary and dried neem in my vitamix. We sprinkled it on the dog, rubbed it in and the fleas couldn't get away fast enough. Oatmeal and baking soda absorbs greasy dirt and odor. Rosemary is a natural flea repellent and neem is not only good for the skin but also repels mange mites and lice.
We dust our dog with DE against fleas and ticks.....it seems to work even better than those expensive "spot on" medicines like Advantage and Frontline......I haven't tried it on the cats though since they lick themselves a lot more.....
