Getting rid of pesky fleas and ticks is only half the battle. Doing it safely is a challenge in itself. Since many pet products contain hazardous chemicals, safety is a concern to both pets and humans. 


Parasite prevention tips

After each walk in the countryside, meticulous manual inspection of your companions fur followed by brushing. Also check the bottom of your pants before you go home: ticks can sometimes hide there.

To avoid fleas and ticks, we suggest to:

 - Regularly bathe your pet with natural cleaners 
 - Vacuum the home once a week
