10 Easy Ways to Make Your Pet Green


8. Flea and tick treatments

Keeping your pet free from ticks, lice and fleas doesn’t have to involve spraying him with loads of chemicals. It’s easy to understand that rubbing toxic chemicals into your pet’s skin where it is later absorbed into the bloodstream is a harmful process. The dangers are very real especially when you repeat the process several times throughout your pet’s life. Instead of using harmful insecticides, use internal preventative measures, which include feeding your pet a diet rich in B-vitamins. Pests usually don’t enjoy the taste of those ingredients so they’ll likely avoid your pet. If you want to use external treatments, try using natural shampoos and herbal sprays to keep the pests away.
