Hi all, I found this product while doing research on my little yorkies diabetes. I do not use Frontline very often (maybe once a year) I keep my yard treated and they are bathed every two weeks. I rarely find anything on them and if I do I just let them sit a little longer in their eucalyptus shampoo. However we sometimes like to camp or go for a hike and I need something I can use on them then. Has anyone here ever heard of this? Used it? I would appreciate any input. Thanks
I have never heard of it, so i dont know if it would work. I use pet-so-soft which is all natural spray that can used all the time. I also use a spot on called natural defense when the fleas and ticks are bad. I have never had a problem with either one, and I have never seen flea. I have removed 1 tick on of one of my five dogs. Early in the spring, she had a regular (not deer) tick over her eye. Good luck
Get some diatomaceous earth you can get food grade as well, you add it to their food and it will take care of internal parasites. Put it in the yard and it kills fleas tics, ants, spiders, flies pretty much anything with an exoskeleton.
Diatomaceous Earth - Natural Flea Control - we offer Perma Guard™ Fossil Shell Flour which is a pure, all natural, food grade diatomaceous earth. This all natural product can be used to eliminate external parasites on dogs or cats including fleas or ticks.
Diatomaceous earth is a non-toxic, safe substance made up from crushed fossils of freshwater organisms and marine life. Crushed to a fine powder and observed through a microscope, the particles resemble bits of broken glass. Deadly to any insect and completely harmless to animals, fish, fowl or food. Most insects have a waxy outer shell covering their bodies, diatomaceous earth scratches through this shell causing the insect to dehydrate leading to eventual death. For external parasites, such as fleas, you sprinkle the powder on your pets, carpets and bedding. Diatomaceous earth effectively kills ants, ticks, fleas, aphids, silverfish, cockroaches, bed bugs, carpet beetles, slugs, snails, tomato hornworm, house flies, fruit flies, red spider mites and earwigs.
Directions for Fleas and External Insects:
Lightly sprinkle on your pet and rub throughout the coat. Avoid inhaling the powder and do not let your pet breathe it in. Also avoid the eyes. At the same time, sprinkle the powder over your carpets, pet bedding, areas of the yard where your pet may go or lie on, and all other areas that come in contact with your pet. Repeat the application once to twice per week for at least 3 weeks. This is especially important as only 5-15% of the flea infestation that you see are adult fleas. The remainder of your flea infestation is flea larvae that have not yet hatched. Complete coverage on a repeat basis is necessary to eliminate the fleas as they hatch.
Other Uses for Food Grade Diatomaceuos Earth (Perma Guard™ Fossil Shell Flour):
This page is concerned with the use of Diatomaceous Earth for external fleas and insects, however, there are a wide variety of other uses to help achieve better health for your body, your family, your animals, your crops, your water, and your soil.
