Flea & Tick Prevention: Protect Your Dog Naturally
Fleas and ticks are not only an itchy nuisance, but can transmit a number of diseases, and put your pets, and you at risk. Before heading outdoors, it's important to prepare for flea and tick season by taking precautionary measures that
protect your pet and family. When taking these preventative steps, pet parents may mistakenly use harmful flea and tick methods. These methods include sprays with dangerous toxins, chemical-filled shampoos, and certain medications that are considered unsafe for dogs. Unfortunately, there have been many reports warning pet parents about the negative side effects of toxic flea and tick products. Certain
medications can cause neurological problems (such as tremors seizures, ataxia), vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, skin irritations, and lethargy. Even if your dog is
currently wearing a traditional flea collar and rubs it on your couch, your entire family could be exposed to toxic pesticides that come from the collar.

opt for natural alternatives to avoid the risk of accidentally poisoning their pet.
