    So does that mean you have used these more natural remedies and the have worked for you? I am so making a batch of that spray tomorrow.

  • First Basenji's

    Sergeant? It's a cheaper brand? i didn't see anyone mention it? My furkid is almost old enough for the flea dip? Is Sergeant okay? I use other sergeant flea & tic products for outside & around the house? Any opinions


  • Does the comfortis protect against tics, also? I skimmed through the web site and did not catch that it mentioned tics.

    There have been reports in our local news about neurological problems from their products as well as chemical burns. Do an internet search and I'm sure you'll find some info about it.

    I don't know but I also was wondering about that and after searching the net it (comfortis) doesn't seem to protect against ticks.


  • While the show is not on yet, there was a snippet for World News Tonight about flea and tick meds making dogs sick… should be on out here on the west coast in about 10 minutes.

    Thanks for the snippet Tanza


  • The ONLY Seargent product that I use is an all natural ingredient flea and tick spray - and I don't appear to be able to find it anymore either. The nautral ones that I linked too - work on ticks as well . If you have a dog that is outdoors all day - I might look at it differently but my couch potatos are fine.


  • When we have to deal with fleas, which is extremely seldom, I always use Adam's flea shampoo on the animals and their carpet spray on the carpets. I guess it's every 4 - 5 yrs we'll see a few fleas. The shampoo doesn't smell like insecticide, it leaves their coats soft, and is really effective. I know it's available coast to coast b/c my sister who used to work in an Army vet clinic in North Carolina is who got me using it here in Washington. It's the only product their clinic used – and I've noticed it the background in some of the clinics on the Animal Planet Animal Precinct shows, LOL
