Best Flea and Tick Tool and Giveaway

It can be lurking anywhere...right in your back yard. Those awful little bugs crawling around, waiting to jump on your dog and make him itch or worse.
 1. Fleas not only cause itching--my vet described the discomfort of flea bites as a fiery burning pain that is beyond uncomfortable for most dogs.
2. Many dogs have allergies to fleas causing even worse reactions.
3. Most flea treatments contain strong chemicals that you have to apply to your dog's skin, which we all would like to try to avoid when possible.

4. Fleas are a nightmare to try to get rid of, requiring you to treat your whole house, bedding, rugs, furniture, etc.
5. Ticks embed in the dogs and feed on their blood and...okay just gross.
6. Many ticks carry diseases, some of which humans may get too
7. Deer ticks may carry Lyme Disease. May is National Lyme Disease awareness month. Lyme Disease is a serious condition if left undiagnosed and untreated.

How about a giveaway?
The best way to take care of flea and tick problems is to discover it quickly. Check your dog when she comes in from outside. They don't need to be playing in the woods to get fleas or ticks. Kelly and our lab before her, Hudson, both got ticks in our back yard, and they both got Lyme disease. Luckily they were treated and recovered completely. Kelly gets the Lyme vaccine and flea and tick preventative. And I also check her fur for little invaders. The Company of Animals has a handy Tick and Flea Comb, with one side to comb to pick up the tiny little flea residue and eggs. The other side has a slit designed to capture complete ticks. It's a great little tool that will be a big help. They sent us one to try out, and it's easy to use, even through all Kelly's thick fur.

Luckily, we found no fleas or ticks!

We gave away two Tick and Flea Combs on PPP Pawsitively Pets newsletter, and now we have 3 more to give away here. Enter for your chance to win!

  7. i had the hardest time w/ fleas for a yr b/c i babysat a friend's dog for several months off and on. she brought fleas w/ her w/ every visit. i was so mad. i have lived in my house for 12 yrs and never had fleas, ticks -yes b/c i live in the country, but never fleas. i tried everything. spent hundreds of dollars on all natural products, and natural yard products, finally had to resort to comfortis. just did 1 time and it worked....thank goodness. never babysitting for that dog again. my daycare is closed to outsiders.

  8. I would like to use something other than topical treatments for fleas and ticks. This would do the trick.

  9. I have a little tick key we use. The problem is the deer ticks, they are super tiny and even engorged are hard to detect. :-(

  10. i use the freeze spray on ticks, kills them, easy to pull off. i inspect my dogs several times a day. the ticks are bad this yr, fleas bad last yr, ticks bad this yr. also use diatrimetris ? earth in the pens....and use homeopathic spray for ticks, fleas...

  12. Perineoplasty (or Perineorrhaphy) has an objective
    of making this area look normal by cutting out excess skin and flaccid skin tags.

    The good news is that normally they are benign tumors that won't affect your health. There are many different reasons that could lead to the development of these tags on the skin.
