Do All-Natural Flea and Tick Prevention Products Really Work for Pets?

All-natural pet products are becoming more and more popular, but they don’t always offer the best
treatment for your pet. Because fleas and ticks can transmit diseases and cause infection, it’s
important to use flea and tick prevention methods that actually work. Here’s a look at whether all-
natural flea and tick prevention products do what they promise.

Evaluating Natural Flea and Tick Remedies

There are many recipes or suggestions for all-natural flea and tick prevention methods, treatments,
and remedies available online. Before using one on your cat or dog, you should evaluate the
ingredients and method to consider if it will really be effective. You should also always talk to your
veterinarian before choosing an all-natural treatment method for any condition, symptoms, or illness
that your pet has. Sometimes, all-natural treatments can be more dangerous to your pet than
prescription treatments.

Problems with Natural Flea and Tick Prevention

All-natural flea and tick prevention remedies and treatments are not evaluated by the FDA or any
other safety or regulatory agency. There is no guarantee that they will be safe or effective, and they
can actually do more harm than good. All-natural treatments can cause allergic reactions, skin
infections, and poisoning. They also typically don’t eradicate the problem or prevent flea and tick
infestation, so your pet suffers more and for longer.

Protecting Your Pets Effectively from Fleas and Ticks

To safely and adequately protect your pet from fleas and ticks, you should consult with your
veterinarian. Your veterinarian will evaluate your pet’s health and risk level, and also take into
consideration your pet’s age, weight, and size to determine the best possible flea and tick prevention
medication to prescribe.

To learn more about which flea and tick prevention methods and medications will work best for your
pet’s age, health, and size, make an appointment with your veterinarian.
