Flea and Tick Control Products and Our Pets

As pet owners, we want to do our best to keep our companion animals parasite free, not only for their comfort, but to avoid the diseases that parasites can bring along with them.

While the standard flea and tick control products are very effective, we also need to consider what the cost is to the health of our animals, and to the environment in general.

Most commercially available flea and tick treatments contain neurotoxins that can cause devastating reactions in our pets, up to and including death, and since there are readily available safe, effective and natural alternatives, why gamble with their lives and health?

In my quest to use only safe and natural pest repellents for my own dogs, I've created some effective alternatives using essential oils and other natural ingredients that are very safe when used in appropriate dilutions. These work quite effectively against our local spring and summer tick outbreaks, and my dogs rarely have any fleas, and the few they do encounter typically don't stick around long. These home prepared pest repellents also cost mere pennies per spray bottle to make, so a great value as well, and are safe for our pets, and for the environment.

Most importantly, to help your dog or cat avoid parasite infestation, remember that a healthy pet with a strong immune system is the best pest repellent of all! Parasites don't typically select strong, healthy animals as hosts, but prefer animals with weak immune systems because they have fewer defenses against them.

If you would like to discuss how to help your dog or cat avoid pests naturally, feel free to contact me. I look forward to guiding you on your own unique wellness journey with your animal companions.

Yours in Health and Wellness,
