Mosquito season is upon us. Clouds of these wonderful insects have arrived and what can we do?
The APCC does not recommend the use of mosquito control products that contain DEET. Dogs and cats are extremely sensitive to DEET and may develop neurological problems if a product formulated with DEET is applied to them.
* Some topical flea and tick control products for dogs such as Frontline and K9 Advantix contain mosquito repellent. I find Activyl to work very well on my dogs.
* Avoid using pest control products with concentrated essential oils such as tea tree, pennyroyal and d-limonine. These concentrates have caused weakness, paralysis, liver problems and seizures in pets, plus their effectiveness is not proven.
One of the more effective natural mosquito repellents Repel Lemon Eucalyptus.
A repellent called Bite Blocker ranks second. And don’t forget Skin So Soft as an option.
Do you have any good remedies? Please share them with us. And remember, cats are not little dogs and products that are safe for dogs are often fatal when used on a cat so be safe before applying to your feline friend.
This is Seeker playing “Fetch-It” for the first time at an Ultimate Air Dogs event this past weekend. It’s similar to extreme vertical, except the the bumper is kept at a set height and is moved out horizontally over the pool in 1 foot increments. EV keeps it 8 feet out, but moves it up vertically in 2 inch increments starting at 4’6″.
People often ask what is the difference in a food formulated for an active dog versus a dog that may be more stay at home orientated. With activity, dogs tend to have a gastrointestinal tract that could expedite movement of the food through its lumen, or the inside of the GI tract. read more
