IMG_0599

Fleas are the bane of every dog and every dog owner, but unfortunately most commercial flea treatment products are highly toxic, often doing more harm to your dog’s health than good. With Keeping Your Dog Flea Free from The Whole Dog Journal, you’ll discover the alarming truths about these dangerous products, and the natural alternatives that are available

WHAT NOT TO DO!
Flea collars, shampoos, sprays, and dips contain many toxic chemicals that are harmful to your dog, and are known to be responsible for pet poisonings.
Spot-On Flea Killers are popular because of their effectiveness and ease of use, but contain ingredients that have been linked to serious health effects including nasal cancers, anemia, and liver damage.
Flea Traps are relatively safe, but results are inconsistent at best, as the light-bait never seems to attract fleas.
WHAT YOU CAN DO!
Your Dog’s Overall Health plays a vital role in flea prevention. A proper diet and stress-free environment act as immune-boosters, and will make your dog a less likely target for fleas.
Vitamins, supplements, oils and herbs can act as a flea repellent, and also are beneficial to your dog’s overall health.
Diatomaceous Earth, or DE, is calcium dust that you can use inside your house and in your yard to destroy adult fleas and flea larvae – and fleas cannot develop resistance!
Practical and Common Sense Solutions such as frequent vacuuming and diligent flea combing are obvious, but there are many other simple things you can do in and around your home – and we’ll tell you what they are!
Also examined are why “live” fleas are not necessarily the problem, the risk of using corticoids, and even when and how to decide if a chemical treatment is needed.
