Yes, it's called cloud nine herbal. You can find it in the flea control aisle, hopefully, at your local petshp. It has cedar and lemon oil, things fleas hate. It comes in a little tiny bottle. You mix just a tea spoon in shampoo or spray bottle. Hopefully you can find it at your petshop.

Well I know one thing, if my baby makes it through this thing with her leg, I will never, ever, put anything else on them. If you can find a natural sub. then if I were you that is what I would use if you just have too. But, for me, I'm not putting anymore of this stuff on my babies.
Wow dusty, I wish I had had that article to give to one or our clients. She refused to put her dog on heartworm preventative because she sweared that she fed the dog garlic and that the garlic repelled the mosquitos. Well, maybe some of them but at least one of those pesky things got a hold of the dog and it came up positive for heartworms. So sad, then the dog had a reaction to the heartworm treatment and almost died.......at least in this case I'm for heartworm preventative all the way. I do use frontline, but have also used an organcic flea/tick shampoo called "Super R". It is only a shampoo so it has no residual effects, but its very effective at removing adult fleas that are on the dog when you bathe it. And it smells great too!
