Chemical flea control measures are common. Yet, few people have any idea what the ingredients are, what the side effects are or how effective they are. In fact, most people have no idea what causes high populations of fleas, tricks and other parasites. Using a system of natural dogs health, you can prevent parasite population explosion without using harmful chemicals.
The common pesticides used in dog flea control products contain nerve gas ingredients. Even when they don’t, the product is still highly toxic. And it’s not just your dog who suffers either. You can be contaminated by touching your dog, by being in the vicinity of your dog or by applying the product.
Serious consequences of these hazardous products include serious brain damage, heart attacks, seizures, cancer and death. More mild reactions include shivering, salivating, dilated pupils, vomiting, tremours and skin irritation.
Be wary of anything that calls itself ‘natural’, too. Although many are, the word ‘natural’ has become a popular marketing word, whether or not it truly is. Other popular words are ‘organic’, ‘recommended by top veterinarians’. ‘toxin free’, ‘chemical free’ and others I have even seen products marketed as being ‘homeopathic’, when they aren’t. Learn to read the ingredients and then do a thorough search on those that you don’t know about.
Never assume that someone would never sell you a harmful product, however nice they appear to be. They may have been hoodwinked, too. You owe it to your dog to be thorough and sure.
Even knowing the ingredients isn’t the whole story, as how the product is made is never mentioned. Catalysts can be used to make a product. Many catalysts are extremely hazardous and will leave a trace behind, which a sensitive dog may well react to adversely.
You may have bought the product from your veterinarian, but that doesn’t mean it is safe. Your dog can still suffer. Many mainstream vets will deny a link between a product they sell and your dog’s reaction. They have not been trained to look for problems with their products. A holistic veterinarian or a natural health therapist is more likely to see problems where they do, in fact, exist.
Most people believe that parasites are a way of life with furry animals, such as cats and dogs. Nothing could be further from the truth. Although you can expect the odd flea in most furry animals, the causes of high populations are, for the most part, man-made.
