Products intended to kill fleas and ticks can also poison our pets and the people who handle them.
Advantage, Frontline, flea collars, flea shampoos by Hartz, Zodiac and Sergeants all contain insecticides (poison) and can have serious health consequences to your pet.
Side effects can include vomiting, diarrhea, trembling, seizures, respiratory problems, and long term side effects can be tumors and cancer. Deaths have been reported from using these products.
An alternative to poisons is to have your home treated by Fleabusters. They use boric acid and offer a 1 year money back guarantee. I have used them and it really works.
