6 Ways to Naturally Prevent and Get Rid of Fleas on Dogs
Natural flea repellent for dogs, cats, and humans -- kill fleas organically!
Flea Away is a vitamin complex, specifically formulated for dogs and cats. Flavored with real liver, your pet will love them. What makes Flea Away different from alternate flea repellents is that fleas don’t get on the dog or cat’s skin and bite before finding chemicals and going away. The pests simply stay away from your pet because of the odor (undetected by humans) that your pets skin gives off. With Flea Away your dog or cat’s skin gives off a natural smell caused by the special safe mixture of vitamins. If your dog or cat has an allergic reaction to flea bites, then Flea Away is the way to go. The fleas, ticks and mosquitoes are naturally repelled before biting your pet.
Like the Vet’s Best, this product can be sprayed directly on dogs or on furniture. It immediately kills, fleas, flea eggs and larvae, and ticks, while also repelling mosquitoes. It differs from Vet’s Best in that this uses chemical formulations instead of natural oils, which might contribute to better performance but also could be a concern for some buyers. This version of the product removes the permethrin, which means it can be used on both cats and dogs, if you have a mixed household. A few reviews noted that the recommended dosage seems high, so read the instructions and use your best judgement when treating your pet. This is a good all-purpose solution that should get the job done.
