Fleas and ticks are common pests that pose significant health risks to our beloved companions. While traditional flea and tick products often contain harmful chemicals and concerns for pet owners, there’s a growing interest in herbal alternatives because of their repellent of the pests in the first place, vs traditional chemicals that require the bugs to bite to properly perform. At Hungry Hound, we have a variety of herbal interventions that can help protect your dogs from the nuisance and danger of fleas and ticks. The Earth Animal Nature’s Protection line tends to be a favorite. We carry Earth Animal’s internal protection powder that’s added to food, herbal prevention collars, bug sprays, and spot-on creams that all produce stellar results and protect in a variety of different ways. It’s recommended that before fully switching your flea/tick prevention routine, perform a patch test to make sure there are no adverse skin reactions to anything applied topically. The key to using herbal products is to stay on top of things! Perform regular checks on your dog’s coat to ensure the products are doing their job. Make sure to replace/reapply products in accordance with instructions, and you and your furry friend will be well on your way to a naturally pest-free summer!
