Spring is here and flea and tick season will soon be in full swing. I see many people writing in and asking what to do to avoid buying the medicine that the vet prescribes for keeping them away from their animals and subsequently, out of their homes. There is nothing that works better than what you get at your vet!
I know it's expensive, but when you weigh the cost of the medicine against buying or using something cheaper and having to hire an exterminator to come and rid your home of fleas, as well as having to possibly pay for sick animals because they have had fleas and ticks on them, it makes way more sense to just bite the bullet and buy the stuff from the vet that you know will work. We had to have an exterminator one year. They don't just come once, they have to come at least twice and it is VERY expensive!
Sometimes paying a little, or even a lot more for a good product will end up saving you a lot more money in the long-run. It will also save your pet's health.

What about 1-800-pet-meds or what ever it is called?
Thank you Robin, I back you 100% on this. My two indoor dogs are on Frontline all year and I purchase it at lambriarvet.com.
Since they are on preventative all year, there is no chance fleas can get into my house and onto my indoor kitties.
Unfortunately, those medicines can have bad effects on the animal, longterm or allergic reactions. Basic H by Shaklee has been used by breeders and ranchers for shampoo to rid of fleas and PREVENT THEM from returning, along with natural supplements. You can email me for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or look up a distributor in your area!
