I looked for Fels Naptha soap and while it says it is available at places like Ace Hardware (none in Canada) and Walmarts and Bashas which is around the corner from the condo in Arizona I could not find it here in Calgary. Anyone else in Canada see it anywhere. I am going to call Home Hardware which is in the next town and see.
Besides being good for washing after contact with poison ivy it says that it is good for fleas and ticks on dogs - well we dont have fleas or ticks here in Calgary in the mountains or forested areas perhaps deer ticks but Baxter who was the most adventurous of the 4 and sometimes led Bella astray picked up something in Montana (Himself's fault) and a tick in Knowlton Quebec - the cottage we rented on the main street backed onto Coldbrook Mill Stream. I am not exactly sure if it is a preventative or a cure that is to say would bathing the dogs in Naptha prevent ticks or fleas? The tick had to be removed by the vet - ick ick ick. But I am betting that vinegar would have removed it and I just read the other day of something that removes ticks and I cant remember what it was - something household.
