Protect Your Pet
Your veterinarian has probably recommended flea and tick treatments so your pet can live a long, healthy life without the nuisance and dangers of these parasites. But have you ever wondered if the chemicals in flea and tick spot-on treatments are safe for you and your pet?
According to the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) in April 2009, spot-on pesticide products for flea and tick control have reportedly caused the following adverse side effects1:
- Skin Irritation
- Skin Burns
The EPA has since worked on developing some safety measures for these products and strongly suggest consumer caution and education about their use.
The EPA has reported over 1,600 pet deaths related to spot-on treatments in the last five years2, yet the government agency is still not enforcing harsh regulations with the manufacturers.
The truth and enlightening education is in the ingredients. There are pyrethroid-based chemicals, organophosphate insecticides (Ops), and carbamates found in most flea and tick treatments, and these ingredients can be very hazardous to pets and children, according to the National Resources Defense Council2.
These toxic chemicals, like most chemicals and pesticides in the home, are not only dangerous for you, your family, and your pets, but also the environment. And while there are natural remedies for flea and tick control available on the market today, they can be very costly.
Don’t despair! You do not have to spend an outrageous amount of money on all-natural treatments, and you don’t have to succumb to using dangerous products on your pet!
