Toxins are all around us; they are in the stuff that many of us use on a daily basis and they can be very detrimental to our health and our dogs health. First let's take the flea treatments like Frontline, Advantage etc. I use to use the topical type; they seemed like a miracle cure at first didn't they? No fleas, no ticks? But what we weren't considering then and many don't consider now is what's in this stuff? There are articles everywhere on the net if you want to find out the real goods; here are just a few.
People in general are becoming so much more aware these days. Do you really want to put that toxic substance right onto your dog when it says keep children away? Do you want to give your dog a pill that will stop the cycle of fleas from the inside out? I didn't think so. If you do a small amount of research there are so many way to treat your dog safely; for both your dog and the humans. Phramaceuticals and pet products are big business these days; for the health and safety of your dog don't blindly grab the newest product on the market.
Some safe ideas for natural flea repellants but just look it up on the net and you will find a plethora of products to keep you flea free. Also remember that fleas drown even with a regular shampoo bath; suds up your dog and watch the fleas try to get away. Wash them down the drain and be rid of those pests.
