Flea & Tick Products – Poisoning More than Pests
It’s that time of year again when people start to think about slathering their pets in toxic pesticides in order to control fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, etc. Not only is that not a good idea, it can be very detrimental to the overall long-term health of your pets, not to mention the immediate adverse effects that can happen!
If the instructions say to wear gloves when applying to your pet and to take extra caution throwing away the containers of these toxins, why then do we think it’s okay to apply this to our pets? It does not make any sense.
This article shares in depth how these toxic pest control products are also causing harm to humans and of course the environment – which is no surprise to us: FLEA CONTROL PRODUCTS THREATEN PETS AND HUMANS
A better way to control pests is to not invite them in the first place – by honoring the laws of health which has species appropriate nutrition as the foundation, pests are NATURALLY controlled. Nature has its own form of pest control which is really a balance, and there is nothing toxic about it!
Our pets deserve to be cared for in a way that respects and honors them as the species they are and as our companions – toxic pest control is in direct violation of both not to mention it violates the laws of health.
