I recently learned that the active ingredients in flea and tick pet treatments (the type that you put on the pet’s neck) are the same as some very powerful termiticides. These termiticides require that all skin is covered to avoid absorbtion through the skin. I don’t understand how it could be safe to apply these chemicals directly to our pets if it’s unsafe for us. Here is a link to an article by CBSNEWS.com that talks about the subject.
After doing your own reseach, if you find that the risk is too much for your pet give HomePro a call at 757-499-1078. We have preventative flea and tick treatment options that are as effective, but without the risk.
