Feverfew Flea Rinse For Cats

Feverfew Flea Rinse for Cats

Feverfew flowers

I first became interested in feverfew as a treatment for an older cat of mine. Feverfew can be used as a pain reliever in cats, (or dogs) as an alternative to aspirin which are toxic to felines. You can use a glycerin-based tincture or a teaspoon dose cooled tea in drinking water. I could never get my cat to drink it, however, feverfew did work well for a flea rinse. Feverfew contain compounds known to paralyze fleas. Works best as a rinse made from fresh flowers.

Recipe Instructions: Tincture :Chop a few handfuls of the fresh flowering tops. Infuse in a few cups of hot water. Let cool, strain and pour over cat, in a small basin. Do your best to keep the cat wet for at least ten minutes so fleas will drop off. No need to rinse. Your cat will likely not approve of the whole procedure, but will appreciate being flea free.
