Everything I’ve read says that peppermint is toxic for dogs.... but I have a flea and tick spray made for dogs that contains peppermint.
So if everything is saying peppermint is toxic, why would it be put into a product made for pets? Should I stop using it? And in that case what is the best product for fleas and ticks?

I don’t have any prior knowledge on this so I was just wondering if someone could explain this better to me.
Thanks!!

My parents used Avon skin so soft original for ticks, they’d spray it before the dogs went hunting and they never had ticks, I’m not sure if it worked for fleas as they had flea meds but they never had them. It also helped keep the gnats and mosquitos off them as well.

There’s a lot of unhealthy toxic things they still make for dogs/pets.the fda doesn’t regulate pet items like they do human items so there’s a lot of lax when it comes to what passes for pet safe
