Hi, it's great to hear the success stories here but I was shocked to read that Borax is potentially deadly to cats.
I had a flea issue to deal with and one of my cats had horrible itchy scabs from his reaction to the fleas. Solution? Flowers Of Sulphur! 😃
I mixed 1 part Flowers Of Sulohur to 2 parts corn flour and worked it onto their skin, being careful not to make a dust cloud near their faces. I also treated their ears as I suspected mites too.
Result? Fleas slowing down or dying so it was easy to comb them out of my cats' fur with a flea comb.
Also, within a week the itchy scabs were gone.. the Flowers Of Sulphur is a great skin soother. It also deals with fungal issues.
Now my cats seem much happier and if they're happy I'm happy.
EC: Thank you for your great feedback!
Regarding borax and cats: we have a borax and peroxide feedback section for cats with mange that has posts from readers who had favorable results, so what you read about borax in another post might not be correct.
