Traditional flea preventatives are not something I use on my pets.
I was motivated to study herbalism by the items themselves.
My vet once recommended a single big-brand flea and tick medication for my young terrier.
The tablet had a severe reaction on my child, and he was in a fight for his life.
Thankfully, he lived. I became more aware of what I placed on and in him.
Instead, I consulted holistic vets and researched.
My dogs have only had three ticks and no fleas in 12 years after this terrifying experience.
