Hi! I am getting a new puppy soon and I don't want to have to use topical or oral flea stuff. My last dog had a horrible reactin to frontline and k9 advantix. He was ok but I honestly don't want to use any medications if I can help it. Any suggestions?
Whether naturally derived or synthetic, all substances are made of chemicals. Some naturally derived substances are quite toxic, 'natural' does not automatically mean 'safe'.
Some individual dogs have reactions to particular substances. Because your last dog had reactions to particular flea medications, it does not follow that this puppy will have the same reactions.
Some dogs, as humans may have sensetivities to some things, so using caution at first should always be. All living things have a chemical make up, and there is a difference between those and all the man made chemical pesticides.
