Question for Dog People about Fleas
I've been using Advantage II flea control for my dogs for years and recently switched to NexGuard because I was having a reaction to the topical chemicals in the Advantage II. And if it's making me feel ill it could well be the same for the dogs. But then I realized that NexGuard is also a pesticide. It's poison. How can it possible be okay to feed poison to our dogs?? On the other hand I absolutely don't want to live with fleas and have heard that the non-toxic, all natural sorts of flea control don't really kill all the fleas. And we all know how one flea leads to millions of fleas. And tapeworm. Gross.
I would love to hear from all the dog owners out there: what kind of flea control do you use? If it's NexGuard has it worked for you for 10, 15, years with no problems at all for your dogs? I would love to know there's really no reason for me to worry about this. If it's a non-toxic approach, what is it and does it really kill all the fleas?
