Ingredients:

1Qt. 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
1/4 cup Baking Soda
2 tsp Dawn Liquid Dish Soap.

Steps:
  1. Do not spray your dog or cat with water yet.
  2. Mix the above ingredients together. It will fizz.
  3. Soak your dog or cat’s fur with the mix and let it soak in for about 20 minutes. Keep the mix out of your pet’s eyes. Use a sponge to clean his or her head and around their eyes.
  4. Knead the solution into the fur, be sure to get every part of your pet with the mixture.
  5. After about 20 minutes rinse thoroughly with water.
Notes:
  1. Avoid contact with your pet’s eyes. If your pet’s eyes are red and swollen, contact your vet.
  2. Don’t premix the recipe. Keep the ingredients separate until you need them.
  3. Double or triple the recipe for larger dogs. This amount should be enough for a small – medium sized dog or cat.
