Flea and Tick Meds for Pets
The EPA has recently increased its scrutiny of flea and tick control products for pets. Apparently many of the well known flea and tick repellents pet owners use may cause the animals to have adverse reactions ranging from skin irritation to more serious effects such as seizures and, in some cases, death of the pet. I guess I never really thought about flea and tick repellent as being a pesticide, but that’s exactly what it is. I think I’ll be searching for a more natural repellent to use on my dog from now on.
