Vet's Best Flea & Tick Products
Vet's Best Flea & Tick Products

The Good:  Made in the USA, affordable, all natural, made with safe, unique blend of peppermint and clove extracts, kills fleas, flea eggs, ticks, mosquitoes on contact!

The Bad: Vet’s Best is sold currently at only 6 stores nationwide, including Petco and The Vitamin Shoppe.  I found that when I called Petco, they didn’t have the complete line in stock, my recommendation would be to simply order online and have the products delivered right to your door.

The Review: We learned about Vet’s Best at the Global Pet Expo and had the opportunity to meet the representatives.  One thing we noticed at the Expo that out of the 900 vendor booths there were just a handful of booths that had all natural or organic products made in the USA.  We were ecstatic to learn more about all of the products from Vet’s Best.  We tested the Vet’s Best Flea & Tick product line which includes:

Flea & Tick Spray
Anti-Flea Easy Spray Shampoo
Flea & Tick Home Spray
Flea & Tick Yard and Kennel Spray

Our dogs, Bruce Lee and Rocco Jet, have been very lucky and haven’t had any real problems with fleas or ticks in the past.  We use Revolution, a monthly heartworm/flea & tick treatment combined with Perma-Guard and it has worked perfectly in the past at keeping the fleas and ticks at bay.  We recently relocated and moved into a new city and unfortunately found a FLEA on Bruce Lee! Luckily we had our Vet’s Best products. We grabbed the flea, put it in a ziplock bag and sprayed one small mist of the Flea & Tick Spray into the bag.  We tried this in the past with a flea, we put the flea in a bag and poured in a splash of rubbing alcohol and the flea would swim around for an hour then eventually die.  With Vet’s Best, the flea died in less than a minute!   The first thing you will immediately notice is the lovely fresh scent of peppermint oil and clove extracts.  We soaped up both Bruce Lee and Rocco Jet with the Spray Shampoo. We noticed a couple flea corpses floating in the soapy water.  The thought of any bug on my dogs is horrifying for me. I was so excited to see that this all natural, completely safe shampoo was working.

It is pointless if you remove the fleas from your dogs and do not remove the fleas from your house and surrounding environment.  So the next step is to wash all of the bedding, blankets, toys etc. Vacuum everything and immediately spray the Flea & Tick Home Spray all over EVERYTHING.  I found that you only need to spray a light mist and it works perfectly.  Don’t forget to immediately empty your vacuum outside.  I also sprayed the vacuum after I cleaned it just to make sure it killed any flea eggs that may have been trapped inside.  I also used the Yard & Kennel Spray all over my exterior courtyard and lawn. Which was very easy – when hooked up to the hose the spray misted a huge amount of product perfectly.  The lovely part of the Vet’s Best, is the incredible smell.  My yard, house and dogs all smelled like peppermint and cloves for days.

I continue to spray the Flea & Tick Spay on both of my dogs before they go outside a nighttime to protect them from mosquitoes and from any new fleas from jumping on them. The Vet’ Best Home Spray has become my favorite product.  If I could, I would wear it on a holster 24/7.  I am slightly horrified of spiders, and all bugs basically in general.  I sprayed the Home Spray on a gigantic spider on my courtyard and it curled up and died almost immediately!  In South Florida, we sometimes have these disgusting flying termites that take over at nighttime like a horror movie.  I, of course, sprayed the Home Spray on them and it stopped them in their tracks.  My courtyard was covered with thousands of little dead bugs.  It was great.

I absolutely LOVE this Vet’s Best Flea & Tick product line and you will too!  I cannot wait to try out more of all of the Vet’s Best products. Thank you Vet’s Best for providing us with an all natural, non toxic product that kills fleas, flea eggs, ticks and pretty much every other bug as well on contact!

DOGZAR Reviews . . . Perma-Guard Natural Insecticide

Perma-Guard
Perma-Guard All Natural Flea and Tick Insecticide

The Good: All natural, no chemicals,  safe, effective, easy to use.

The Bad: Not easily found in stores, best way to purchase is to order from website which requires purchasing shipping.

The Review: Treat your dog and your home. It is important to first wash your dog thoroughly, hopefully washing away some of the fleas. After your dog is dry, use Perma-Guard Pet and Animal Powder. Perma-Guard is Diatomaceous Earth (all natural, non-toxic), which is a fossilized deposit of microscopic shells created by one celled plants called Diatoms. Perma-Guard’s insecticides kill by physical action, not chemical. First by being abrasive to the insects exoskeleton and absorbing its body fluids, thus posing no harm to warm-blooded life. Only use Pet and Animal approved DE powder, never use Diatomaceous Earth from a pool supply store, several toxic chemicals are added to pool DE that will seriously harm your dog if applied. You only need to apply a tiny amount (1 tsp) to your dogs coat, rub into several locations throughout the coat. DO NOT INHALE! Apply cautiously, not allowing you or your dog to breathe in any of the powder. Next, clean your carpets and pet beds -vacuum, vacuum and vacuum some more. After each time you vacuum, you MUST dispose of the vacuum bag (fleas and ticks can find their way out of the vacuum quickly). Also apply to carpet and dog beds.

I have two dogs, both are very active outdoors running through the grass and also playing with other dogs.  We have only had a couple issues with fleas in 9 years and that was before I purchased Perma-Guard.  Since using Perma-Guard there hasn’t been a single flea or tick issue.  I also discussed the use of Perma-Guard with a professional pest control company and they approved the use of this product for our dogs also.  They actually stated that the main ingredients are not only safe, but also some of the ingredients they use in homes with children and pets.

Non Toxic Alternatives to Rid your Dog from Fleas

If left untreated they can lead to life-threatening anemia, blood loss, disease and allergies.

Fleas, ticks and mites are external parasites that live on or burrow into your dogs skin. If left untreated they can lead to life-threatening anemia, blood loss, disease and allergies.

Examine your Dog. Do you notice that your dog is scratching more often, shaking its head or visibly uncomfortable? Look at your dogs skin, do you see “flea dirt”, black flea droppings left on your dogs skin? If you see a flea, just know that there are several more you can’t see. Fleas can be found bouncing about anywhere on your dog. Ticks are usually found already burrowed into your dogs skin, between the paw pads, around the ears and within the skin folds. If you see a tick immediately take tweezers and remove the tick. Pull the tick straight out at closest point of attachment to the skin- do NOT puncture the tick – just place tick in a ziplock bag with rubbing alcohol to kill it.

Treat your dog and your home. It is important to first wash your dog thoroughly, hopefully washing away some of the fleas. After your dog is dry, use Perma-Guard Pet and Animal Powder. Perma-Guard is Diatomaceous Earth (all natural, non-toxic), which is a fossilized deposit of microscopic shells created by one celled plants called Diatoms. Perma-Guard’s insecticides kill by physical action, not chemical. First by being abrasive to the insects exoskeleton and absorbing its body fluids, thus posing no harm to warm-blooded life. Only use Pet and Animal approved DE powder, never use Diatomaceous Earth from a pool supply store, several toxic chemicals are added to pool DE that will seriously harm your dog if applied. You only need to apply a tiny amount (1 tsp) to your dogs coat, rub into several locations throughout the coat. DO NOT INHALE! Apply cautiously, not allowing you or your dog to breathe in any of the powder. Next, clean your carpets and pet beds -vacuum, vacuum and vacuum some more. After each time you vacuum, you MUST dispose of the vacuum bag (fleas and ticks can find their way out of the vacuum quickly). Apply 20 Mule Team Borax to your carpet and dog bedding. Borax is a naturally occurring substance, also known as sodium borate or sodium tetraborate. Remove dogs from the room before you begin. Sprinkle borax on carpet and pet bedding, brush in with a broom, let stand overnight, then vacuum up and throw away vacuum bag. Ta Da! Fresh, Clean, Safe, Non-Toxic, Earth Friendly, Dog Friendly parasite killer! You will be so happy and so will your dog!

Another thing to remember is when walking your dog, be very careful of grass that has been treated with pesticides. Avoid walking your dog anywhere near the area. Your dog will step on the grass then lick their paws and ingest the poison. Knowing what foods and plants can harm your dog is critical. It is easy to unknowingly poison your dog when you think you are just giving your dog a healthy snack.

It is very important to also apply a monthly heartworm and flea/tick treatment for your dog, such as Revolution.
