With so many serious insect born diseases, choosing the right insect protection
for ones pet is important. Flea and tick drops such as Advantage and Frontline
are often recommended as they give continuous protection and are highly effective.
Yet there are several reasons for choosing natural insect repellents such
Dog’s Bug N’Out or the natural Defy
the Fly insect collar.
First, using these products in conjunction with drops is a smart and effective
choice. Bug N’Out and other natural repellents typically repel more
types of biting insects like gnats, mosquitoes, and flies that drops often
don’t. Also, no product is 100% effective so doubling up provides extra
protection for your pet. If a pet spends a majority of its time outside then
drops are the most effective singular treatment. However, pets can have difficulties
with flea and tick drops. Some pets are allergic or sensitive to these treatments.
This is another reason for choosing a natural solution. Finally, for pets
that are primarily indoor pets the natural treatments provide a needed protection
and reduce ones pet’s and ones family’s exposure to harsh chemical
treatments. Picking the right insect treatment for your pet is an important
decision based on individual circumstances.
