Vinegar and organic soap kills ticks on dogs
by Raven Sati
We live in a Bangkok neighborhood that has many trees and flowering plants and almost everybody has at least one dog in their yard.
Our dog picked up ticks whenever she went out and we even found them in the house.
Recently I read about mixing white vinegar in a 1:1 ratio by volume with plain antibacterial liquid soap for dog washing.
Now if our dog has ticks they die during her wash and fall off into the suds or rinse water. Also she smells better, her hair seems softer, and she doesn't nibble on her feet like she used to.
If you live in a tick area, I advise bathing dogs this way at least once a week, even more often if you need to.
