Control Your Pet's Cootie Infestations - Naturally and Effectively

In caring for our pets, many of us hold the common misconception that when the weather starts to cool down, the parasites that attack our pets slow down too. But you can't rely on the weather to give your pet relief. The most effective way to protect our pets against fleas, ticks, and other hard-to-control infestations is through prevention and (when necessary) administering pest control products.

This issue’s feature article concentrates on non-toxic, preemptive pest control methods that will keep your pet safe against these invaders. Our informative emergency section details the dangers of flea product poisoning, and our Top Ten provides a guideline on ways to stop your dog from being "pestered." Win the battle against pests - this and every season!
