Flea Treatments

According to a new EPA report at least 44,000 pets were injured from topical and on-spot flea and tick medications. The study examined EPA registered product found mostly in grocery and drug stores in 2008.
It seems that pet foods and treats are not the only things we as pet owners need to be wary of. With the ever looming threat of recalls and unsafe manufacturing practices, it is important for all pet owners to do the proper due diligence when shopping for pet supplies. The days of trusting a product simply because it has made it's way to the store shelf is a thing of the past.

Keeping your pet clean and healthy is key. Start by getting regular grooming either at home or at your professional groomer. A clean body is no place for a flea to be. Next keep them healthy by what you feed them. A strong immune system will help war off those pesky bugs. Supplements are a must and a good one is NuVet Plus.
