Alternative Treatments for Fleas on Pets : FLEAS - We hate them!
Diatomaceous Earth ( DE- only HUMAN grade for your pets)
Re: Alternatives to "Flea / Tick Spot" treatment /
The Frontline can be toxic to people and pets... Any of the spot treatments.. ( If you must use the monthly spot treatments - please use only 1/2 the suggested amount of the tube - Many times 1/2 the amount will Work)
DE is to be used on your pet and IN the YARD - also, I sprinkle it onto my dogs and cats ( and the Goats too)
- It is safe and natural if it is the DE - here is what I order so you know what
I am talking about...
Human Grade DE ( can be found at many FEED and FARM stores or on-line)
Diatomaceous Earth (DE)
A low cost, non-toxic, safe mineral made of crushed fossils. Pure Diatomaceous
Earth can be used during the parasite season both internally and externally to
improve health, appearance, and well-being of animals. Diatomaceous Earth is a
product that can be used as a nutritional supplement for a wide variety of
conditions. Contains the highest concentration of pure, raw Diatomaceous Earth
I buy my from Revival Animal Health - there are many places that sell it. JUST don't let anyone talk you into anything but the Human grade level of D.E. powder
PLEASE remember I am just a Pet Nurse and Not a Vet .... Thanks
