With warm weather on the way, it’s safe to say we’re all itching to go outside. But we’re not the only ones who are excited. Pests are itching, too, but they’re looking to get a free ride indoors on the backs of your furry friends. That’s right, folks. Flea and tick season has arrived. That means we are dealing with the age old Catch 22: you need something strong to take care of the pests, but strong deterrents means harsh chemicals on your pet’s skin. If we aren't careful about what we are using on our best friends, it can unfortunately lead to all sorts of damage & harm (and pricey vet bills). Luckily, we’ve got great news for you! Our Earth Animal line of flea & tick products has all the strength of the “big box” stuff without the nasty chemicals.   

At first, it sounded too good to be true to us, too, but once we used it on our pets and went an entire summer without irritated skin and pesky bugs, we knew it was the real deal. It works by using natural deterrents sourced from the USA like garlic, peppermint, vervain, and even papaya! It's used like this: add a few scoops of the natural supplement powder—which even contains yummy chicken liver—to your pet’s daily meal. It works its way into their bloodstream which makes their blood repellent to pests.    

For extra outer protection, give the peppermint scented collars a try. Like the internal powder, essential oils and herbs are used that smell great to your pets (and us!) but keep bugs far away. The best part is the collars stay potent for up to three months, getting you through an entire summer of fleas and ticks!    

Want to add another line of defense? Try the spot-on oil which uses a similar blend as the collars. While you get a pleasant whiff of cedar wood and peppermint oils, pests will go running for the hills. There’s even a spray that works for humans, so while you’re taking your springtime walks and summer hikes, you’ll be just as protected from bugs and chemicals as your pets.   

Have a pest-free summer by stocking up on Earth Animal’s flea & tick line, available in-store, online, or over the phone!
