If you saw a mosquito and any other bug on your child, you would not put a chemical spray on him to get rid of it, and yet that is exactly what you are doing when you use a chemical product on your pet. It stays there and when you child touches the pet, it gets on his hand and knowing young children, right into his mouth. And of course it is not good for the pet either. Fortunately, there are products on the market now that are all natural, no chemical at all, that will not harm the animals or their humans. The products are made by different companies and over all they pretty much have the same ingredients, so what we will look at here is a comparison of the different types of products, powders, sprays and pills and you can decide which will work best for you and your animals. These are widely available, both on line and in traditional pet stores, so shop around and if you find a deal, get more than one. Although, they are not that expensive to begin with. They have a long shelf life.
