The ~Green Pet~

Yelp it is that time of the year. Last summer We tried a few new ideas instead of the traditional flea and tick stuff they sell for us dogs, that worked very well!

What can you do to avoid fleas and ticks without the toxic fleaandtick collar...

Most chemically-based products pose a real danger to the health of your pet, your kids and yourself. After all, a pesticide flea collar is nothing but a poison necklace around your pet's head. It emits a constant toxic cloud that your pet inhales, as do you and your kids every time you hug or kiss your pet. And what about those insecticidal flea and tick shampoos and powders, sprays and dips? Labels warn you not to get them on your skin, to use rubber gloves and wash your hands. Yet the instructions also tell you to work them into your animal's coat, where they absorb into your pet's skin and are licked!
