DogTipper Review: As we’ve written about before, we live in the country…and living in the country means living with fleas and ticks, at least for some of the year. Because of our warm weather here in Texas, actually it means living with fleas and ticks for much of the year.
This year, our drought has meant an exceptionally low population of ticks and fleas for us…but we know they’ll be returning. We’re always looking for natural, safe ways to control fleas and ticks, and so we were especially interested in Pet Naturals of Vermont, a subsidiary of the FoodScience Corporation, a company that markets an extensive range of pet health products.
Pet Naturals products bear the seal of the NASC (National Animal Supplement Council), an organization which works with the FDA to regulate pet health products. The Pet Naturals product line includes dietary supplements and additives, and topical formulas designed to counter common pet ailments. The company says their products are additive free, thoroughly tested and their potency and purity guaranteed.
Pet Naturals FLEA+TICK Repellent for Dogs & Cats is intended to protect against fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and flies using an all-natural formula using these active ingredients:
- Lemongrass Oil 4%
- Cinnamon Oil 1%
- Sesame Oil 1%
- Castor Oil 0.5%.
FLEA+TICK Repellent comes in two different forms, an 8-ounce pump spray and pre-moistened towelettes. The company points out that the oils in the formula have traditionally been used by indigenous inhabitants of the Amazon forest region for pest avoidance. The formula contains no synthetic chemicals or drugs.
The repellent certainly smells nice, with a fresh lemongrass aroma. It can safely be used daily on any age of dogs and cats. It should not be applied to an animal’s eyes, nose and mouth area.
