You know the risks of using chemical flea meds on your cat, but you’ve tried everything else to no avail. The natural products just don’t seem to suffice for your situation, so you’ve resorted to the traditional flea treatments. Now you’re worried and want to detoxify your cat from flea medications. You’ve come to the right place.
We always suggest using a natural flea treatment and preventative if at all possible. In the cases where this isn’t possible, we recommend using the lowest effective dosage of the traditional treatment and rotating that with a more natural solution. This is just to lessen the effects that these toxins have on the organs of our kitties.
The reason the traditional flea treatments work so well is because they leak into your cat’s bloodstream and make him toxic. This insures that the fleas die if they jump on your kitty. However, it also insures that your cat has chemicals running through the body, trying to be processed through the liver and kidneys.
Most reactions to flea medications don’t come until much later than initial application. If your kitty is given flea treatments monthly, these chemicals stay in the body and build up over time. If your cat suddenly becomes ill or starts acting out of sorts, 9 times out of 10 you and your vet won’t relate it to the normal treatment of fleas.
This is why you want to detoxify your cat of flea medications when you use them. Milk thistle is an amazing way to help push through the toxins and support the regeneration of the liver. It’s also great at detoxifying the kidneys. Simply adding a little milk thistle into your cats daily meal for 6 weeks during flea season can help keep him healthy and counter side effects!
