5 Natural Flea and Tick Remedies You'll Love

Posted on May 31, 2017 , 0 comments

One of the best things about living in Southern California is the weather. It’s nice, really nice, and, unfortunately, fleas and ticks think so too. In fact, the weather is so ideal for them that it’s always flea and tick season and it only gets worse during the warmer summer months. While big box stores offer treatments that utilize harsh chemicals that can result in oily coats and even burns, we prefer to go a more natural route with chemical-free treatments to keep fleas and ticks in check. We are sweetening the deal by throwing 10% off all Flea and Tick items both in-store and online!  Here are our 5 favorite chemical-free flea and tick options to help your pet avoid an itchy summer.

Wholistic Pet Organic: Diatomaceous Earth

Made from the dried skeletons of microscopic sea creatures called diatoms. Their skeletons have razor sharp edges that pierce the bodies of fleas and ticks. Because the diatoms are so small, they pose no threat to dogs, cats, humans or the environment. It’s best used if your pet already has fleas, as it won’t repel or prevent fleas or ticks, but rather just kills them on site
