Flea & Worm Deterrent - Herbal Pet Products
Updated: May 28, 2019
One of the things that many dog and cat owners do to try and keep their pet as healthy as possible, is to give a preventative treat for parasites, such as fleas, worms or ticks.
This is obviously done with the pet's best interests at heart, but, have you ever thought about what it is that you are putting in to your pets system?
A chemical flea and worm treatment is a pesticide. Many owners report their pets having a bad reaction to spot on products that they are using, this can be a skin reaction, a change in behaviour, an upset stomach or worse!
There are some herbal pet products about that offer an alternative. At Holistic Hounds we have our own flea and worm deterrent that, like all of our herbal pet products, is a completely natural medicine for dogs and cats.
People will often ask, are herbal pet products that are formulated to deter fleas and worms as effective the chemical alternative. The short answer is no. But, they also do not carry any risk of side effects - which is the main reason that people choose to use natural pet products.
The chemical products for fleas and worms that you can buy are designed to kill any parasites, where as the natural pet products are designed to make your pet less appealing to these parasites.
At a time when our pets (and ourselves) are exposed to so many potentially harmful chemicals, it's a case of weighing the risk against the reward. Neither flea nor worm infestation are common in the UK, and as such it may be that you consider natural pet products, such as the Holistic Hounds Worm & Flea Deterrent, to provide an adequate level of protection.
We've been using it our own dogs for over a year now, and have had no problems whatsoever!!
