What to Know About Flea and Tick Preventatives on Pets

6th February, 2015
If you have a dog or cat, you probably need some sort of flea and tick preventative. Unless you’re lucky enough to live in a climate where fleas and ticks can’t flourish, you likely end up dealing with these pests once every year or two despite your best efforts. And while pills, topicals, and collars are all viable options for keeping your pets flea-free, it’s important to consider safety when choosing a preventative and moving forward with treatment. Flea and tick medicines are like any other drug or pesticide and do present a danger to pets when used incorrectly. Experts advise that you treat your pets at the start of the flea season to prevent initial infection. It’s easier to prevent a flea problem than to repair one. You should also read the label thoroughly before beginning treatment to ensure you are using the product correctly. Keep pets separate to prevent them from grooming one another and ingesting the chemicals, watch your pets for side effects after application, and contact your vet immediately if your pet begins acting strange. The FDA and EPA oversee development of flea and tick medicines to ensure they are not harmful to animals or their owners, but this only applies if you are using the product as outlined by the manufacturer. Remember: Flea, mosquito, and tick preventatives can help limit the risk of dangerous infections such as Lyme disease and heartworm.

Thank you for the peace of mind that my dog is not in discomfort anymore, thank you for this product being organic and good for our dog's ears, and seriously thank you for giving us an option to help our old pup with a product we can afford.
Melissa Block Demant
I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!
Tina Neupauer
