If you’re looking for a safe flea protection product for your pets, be on guard. The term “safe” doesn’t always mean what you think it means.
The term safe can be used on products that have been shown to produce minimal risk of sickness or death. By definition, “not likely to be harmed or lost.” The drug commercials you see on TV with a huge list of side effects are also considered ‘safe’.
Truth be told, these chemical drugs and chemical flea products are just that… chemicals. Any time you put chemicals into your body they have to be processed by the liver, kidneys and other organs. We prefer for our cats to not deal with the side effects of chemicals in their bodies – if at all possible.
If you do a search online, you’ll find many videos and reports of cats having adverse reactions to chemical flea treatments and some of them can be pretty scary. We understand that the fleas can be a problem for some cats, but you don’t want to replace a problem with another problem. This is why natural, safe flea protection was created.
Using Safe Flea Products for Cats
Natural flea products have been used successfully to both kill and prevent fleas on cats for decades. Before big drug companies, our grandmothers treated fleas with herbs from their gardens. Kitties live much longer when they’re treated by Mother Earth. We can still take this approach with natural care for our cats.
In this day and age there’s a pill for every ill – and we’ve become accustomed to this approach. We live in a fast paced society, so finding something to act fast is appealing. Some natural flea products may take a little longer or more effort to work, but it’s so worth it.
