It’s Flea and Tick Season

You don’t have to poison your pet to rid them of fleas, there is an alternative…

Many people have noticed that dousing their pet with harsh chemicals like Advantage and Frontline aren’t controlling fleas and ticks like they once did. That’s because the pests are becoming chemical resistant mutants. That’s right, just like something in the movies.

The chemical companies are responding with even harsher chemical compounds to poison the pests.

Rather than subject your pet to even higher levels of toxicity, consider a more natural solution.

Spinosad is the active component in both Comfortis and Trifexis. Spinosad is derived from a bacterium found in sugar cane. It’s natural, and in many countries, it’s approved for insect control for organic agriculture. It’s been shown to be deadly effective on insects, and not harmful to mammals. And, it’s given to your pet in the form of a chewable tablet, with no exposure of toxins to you or your family.


At Santa Rosa Veterinary Hospital, we are dedicated to helping your pets with the most natural products available. We’d be happy to discuss if either of these alternatives would be right for you!
