Spring Into.... Fleas AHHHH!!

Spring Into.... Fleas AHHHH!!

Spring is in the air and right now all pets and their owners are EXCITED to hit the doggie park, to go for a run or to hit those walking trails. But wait! Do you have everything that you need for the outdoors?

Collar(check), leash(check), poop bags & holder(check), all-natural treats & portable water bowl(check)! All-Natural Flea and Tick protection…….HMMMMM! You had to think about that one! An all-natural flea & tick spray or squeeze-on that is safe for pets and humans alike! Natural Chemistry is my favorite go to flea & tick line. While there are many flea & tick repellents in the market most do not use ALL-Natural ingredients. Most actually contain chemicals that can be quite harmful to your fur baby. According to the EPA most of these chemicals enter into the body and can be contained in fat, organs, urine and feces of dogs. These chemicals when used over periods of time can cause nervous system and thyroid toxicity, thyroid cancer, liver toxicity, kidney damage, convulsions, loss of appetite……A few of these chemicals when exposed to light can become even more dangerous to your dog.  


So why not go ALL-NATURAL! By using All-Natural Flea & Tick Products that God created rather than using chemical based products that man has created in a lab? We can be doing something better for our pets and also for ourselves.  Like I said before I use Natural Chemistry, not only does it protect me but it also protects my beautiful, vivacious girl and it smells GREAT!  Natural Chemistry Spray contains all-natural active ingredients such as Cinnamon Oil, Cedar Wood Oil and Clove oil that are both safe and effective for up to 7 days.  They also make Squeeze-On for Dogs that not only contains Cinnamon Oil but it also contains Mint Oil and Lemongrass Oil to round out its natural ingredients. This product kills fleas on contact and can keep those pesky black flies and mosquitoes at bay.

I encourage you to try one for yourself, whether it be a homemade Flea &Tick Remedy (listed below are some recipes)  using Essential Oils or the Natural Chemistry line of Flea & Tick products that we sell here at Aristopets.
