Natural Flea Remedies For Dogs And Cats

Posted by Admin under: Health.

If you’re saying to yourself, “my dog has fleas, so what can I do about it?“, then we’re glad you stopped by, because in this short article, we’re going to reveal why chemical-based flea products are bad, not only for your pets but for you and your family too, and why we recommend TripleSure over any other natural flea treatment for dogs (and cats).

But first, we’re going to hand you over to Gary Le Mon, President and founder of Natural Wonder Products, as he explains, in the following short video (it’s only two and a half minutes long), the problems with most commercial flea spray products and why his 100% natural TripleSure product is different.


We hope you enjoyed that!

Commercial Flea Medication – The Problems

As Gary said in the video, above, using chemical-based flea products, whether that be sprays, powders, squeeze-ons, collars or whatever, is dangerous.

The chemicals used are highly toxic, and can cause a number of health issues not only for your pets (e.g. incessant whimpering, enlarged kidneys and even brain tumors), but also for you too.

We all want to look after our pets in the best way we can, but do you really want to risk breast cancer, prostate cancer and Parkinson’s Disease in the process?

And it’s not just us saying that these chemicals are dangerous! We constantly receive criticism from a variety of people (often medical “professionals”) regarding our stance on chemicals, but in this instance, there are a number of respected organizations who have confirmed the toxicity of such chemicals.

The list includes:

  • CDC
  • Department of Labor
  • Environmental Protection Agency
  • National Academy of Sciences
  • National Resources Defense Fund
  • World Wife Fund for Nature

The big drug companies would have you believe that there is no other way, but that’s only because they can make so much money from peddling their drugs. And we’re not only talking the initial cost of their products, but also the repeat visits you’ll need to make to the vet so that they can try to “fix” the problems caused by those drugs.

So, what is the answer?

Natural Flea Remedies

There are several natural products on the market that claim to get rid of dog fleas, but the one that constantly seems to get first-class reviews from people who buy and use it is TripleSure.

Testimonial for TripleSure Natural Flea & Tick Spray

This testimonial is typical of the ones we have found.

So why is TripleSure so well regarded?

TripleSure Is Effective

TripleSure Natural Flea & Tick SprayUnlike other natural flea and tick products, TripleSure only uses two ingredients, both of which were carefully selected based on their long heritage of killing bugs, and keeping them away.

There are several approaches to creating herbal products, and many companies seem to go overboard and include as many different herbs as they can.

The problem with that can be, especially for pets, that all those different tastes and scents can overload their sensory systems.

An alternative approach is to use the fewest number of herbs you need, and no more, and provided you select the best possible ones, you’ll have an effective, if not more effective, product at the end of it all.

So, what are TripleSure’s two ingredients?

Cedar oil and peppermint oil.

If you want to know more about why Gary chose these particular oils, then please read his fascinating story – after all, he’s the Board Certified Master Herbalist, not us!

An added bonus from using these two oils is the gorgeous aroma – something both you and your pets will appreciate.

Testimonial for TripleSure Natural Flea Treatment For Dogs

Why TripleSure?

So, why the name TripleSure?

The clue is, of course, in the name – it does three distinct jobs:

  1. It kills fleas and ticks (including bed bugs too) on contact.
  2. It repels fleas and ticks, as well as bees, flies and mosquitoes.
  3. It retards new insect infestations.

There’s actually a fourth good reason to use TripleSure, but maybe the name QuadroSure wouldn’t sound as good?

But seriously, what you need to realise about flea infestations is that, if you don’t deal with the problem quickly, they can turn into worm infestations (e.g. tapeworm) in a matter of two to three weeks – and that’s a much bigger issue (for which Gary also has a natural solution, of course – it’s called FourGuard)!

And the good news is that TripleSure is made in the USA with local ingredients and carefully manufactured to human grade standards.

That means that it’s deadly to fleas and ticks, but 100% safe for humans, children and, of course, your dogs!

By the way, did we mention that TripleSure is also a natural flea treatment for cats too?

How Much Does TripleSure Cost?

Unlike many other products on the market, TripleSure comes in a generous 16oz. container, which will be enough, in most cases, to treat your dog for about six months.

But just because it’s a larger-than-average spray, that doesn’t mean the cost will be greater.

How does $39.95 sound?

When you compare that to many of the chemical-based flea and tick products sold by traditional pet stores, you’ll find it’s about the same price.

The only difference is, of course, that it’s natural and therefore won’t cause all of those potentially dangerous problems listed above.

And Gary is so positive that you’ll love his TripleSure Flea & Tick spray that he even offers a full 90-day unconditional guarantee.

To us, that already represents great value, but Gary wants to make sure you get the best deal you’ll find online today: we’re not sure how much longer he’s going to be running this deal, but right now, if you buy one bottle of TripleSure, he’ll give you a second one absolutely free!

That means you’ll get enough TripleSure to keep your pet free from fleas and ticks for an entire year – all for the low price of just $39.95!

How Hazardous Is Alcohol To Dogs And Cats?

Posted by Admin under: Health.

It’s outrageous, but some of the people actually enjoy giving their cat or dog alcohol and seeing how they react. As Fluffy or Fido reels around in a confused condition, their owners have a good giggle. Not each person who owns pets realizes that alcohol is toxic to dogs and cats – and exposure to outwardly innocuous amounts of alcohol can kill a pet. When alcoholic drinks are served, cats and dogs should be left out of the party – and in a safe place.

Topping up a pet’s bowl with beer or wine is not the only potential way a dog or cat can gain access to alcohol. They can also get exposure by licking up or drinking cooking products which contain alcohol, personal products like mouthwash or perfume, household cleaning products – or by getting into alcohol-containing cough syrups or other medications.

Some producers of cat and dog oral hygiene products really add 25% or more alcohol to their recipe, which may also cause injury over time. Either way, alcohol is bad for canines or cats. Cats and dogs can even get alcohol toxicity by consuming fermented foods, provided they eat sufficient of them.

Some types of alcoholic drinks are far more perilous to cats and dogs than others. Beer contains the lowest concentration of alcohol, typically around 4%. Wine averages 10% alcohol by volume, but some hard liquor can be as high as ninety percent alcohol.

Even small quantities of hard spirits can for certain kill a small dog or cat. More reason to keep that liquor cupboard locked and pets in a secure place when entertaining. Remember that all alcoholic beverages should be off-limit to pets without reference to the concentration of alcohol.

As in humans, when a dog or cat ingests alcohol, it causes depression of their central nervous system. In some ways, its effects on a pet’s nervous system are similar to that of humans. A dog or cat slows down, becomes drowsy and loses their coordination. If they’re exposed to higher degrees of alcohol, it can depress their nervous system to the extent that their breathing and heart rate slow down, and their body temperature drops.

Their blood chemistry is also changed, resulting in a threatening condition called metabolic acidosis where the blood becomes too acidic. At this stage, without treatment, death soon follows usually due to cardiac arrest. Even if a cat or dog doesn’t die of the acute results of alcohol poisoning, it can be damaging to their liver and kidneys.

What Are The Signs Of Alcohol Poisoning In Dogs And Cats?

Look out for changes in behaviour like problems standing up or walking, trouble with coordination, fatigue, a slow respiratory rate, excessive urination, puking, or a lack of responsiveness. Infrequently a dog or cat will have an odour of alcohol on their breath. If a cat or dog has had a full meal and then ingested alcohol, the signs and indications of alcohol harmfulness might be delayed for at least two hours.

Dogs and cats that are exposed to alcohol can also have perilous drops in their blood sugar level and might need to be given glucose speedily to avoid brain damage. Very low blood sugars can cause fits in pets.

If your cat or dog has any of these danger signs, take them to a vet’s office or animal emergency center immediately. The sort of treatment a veterinarian administers to a cat or dog that has alcohol poisoning varies dependng on their symptoms, lab studies and how much they consumed. The veterinarian will probably measure the quantity of alcohol in their blood, and check other blood parameters before beginning suitable treatment.

Some pets may not require treatment if the quantity of alcohol they consumed was little. Other animals will need activated charcoal to absorb the alcohol and intravenous fluids. Dogs and cats with a very slow heart rate due to the ingestion of alcohol may even have to be on a ventilator. Fortunately, most instances of alcohol poisoning in dogs and cats can be treated effectively if that treatment is started sufficiently early.
The Bottom Line:

Giving a cat or dog alcohol at a party is not an occasion for humor. It could permanently damage or kill the animal. Similarly, it’s important to keep all dogs and cats away from personal care products and home products. Study the label and ensure you buy a non-alcoholic cat and dog dental care product. Try to get other members of your family to do the same. Cats and dogs don’t know what’s good for them and what isn’t – and they’re by nature curious creatures. Don’t allow them to accidentally or purposely play around with alcohol.

Video Testimonial From Las Vegas TV Host, Patty Chong

Posted by Admin under: Health.

To find out more about Patty’s Parvo ordeals – yes, she’s been through this twice now, once by taking her dogs to the vet’s where she spent around $13,000 USD and lost an entire litter, and once using a Home Parvo Treatment kit, where she spent less than $300 USD and saved all her litter – you should read her Case Study.

Parvo Emergency Tea Recipe – What It Is … And What It Isn’t

Posted by Admin under: Health.

The Canine Parvo virus very often strikes at the worst possible moment (although there’s never a good time for your pup to be stricken by the Parvo virus, of course) – you may find it’s 3:00am on a Sunday morning, and the vet’s center is not open.

So, what can you do?

You may already be aware that dogs suffering from Parvo are going to dehydrate extremely fast, which explains why veterinarians will likely hook them up to an IV drip; however, IV drips ordinarily are not items you’ll be able to simply purchase at your local supermarket.

Of course, if you don’t know about the dangers associated with lack of fluids, a fast bit of research on the internet will certainly soon give you the information you’re looking for.

The good news is that there is a Read the rest of this entry »

Where To Buy Parvaid – It’s Not As Obvious As You May Think

Posted by Admin under: Health.

The question of where to buy Parvaid doesn’t seem like it should be too hard – just go to the local store and pick up a bottle.

Sorry, that’s just too easy; it is a little more involved than that.

Parvaid is an herbal product that is both synthetic and chemical-free. It is both safe and effective. Lamentably, since it is not a chemical-based drug, most vets who are Read the rest of this entry »

Parvovirus Shots – What Your Vet Probably Won’t Tell You!

Posted by Admin under: Health.

Almost every dog owner assumes that they need to give their dog Parvo shots to stop them from getting the dreaded Canine Parvovirus, but if your vet told you the truth about these vaccinations, especially the three facts we’ve uncovered based on hundreds thousands of Parvo cases we’ve dealt with, as well as our extensive research, then you’d probably think differently about them.

Firstly, almost all vaccines in use nowadays are no longer protecting dogs against the latest 2c strain of Parvo.

This 2c strain, which first appeared in the United States during 2006 (although it had been present in Europe and other parts of the world for much longer), is much more aggressive and fast-acting than the older 2a and 2b strains.

For example, we had one customer, in the pacific North West, whose dog first showed symptoms of Parvo on a Sunday morning, and by late that same afternoon, it had already succumbed to this horrific virus.

As time goes on, we are witnessing an increasing number of customers who have adult dogs, as well as puppies, that are fully-vaccinated and that are contracting Parvo and are dying from it, unless they are treated in time.

Until not long ago, the only company that manufactured vaccines that had been 100% challenge-tested against the 2c strain was Intervet, but we’ve now had customers whose dogs were vaccinated using their products, and yet still contracted Parvo.

So, don’t assume that because your dog (whether old or young) has been vaccinated, he’s safe and will be immune.

Secondly, and we know this sounds counter-intuitive, but dogs are actually getting full-blown Parvo from the Parvo vaccinations.

Once again, many of our customers have dogs that display full-scale symptoms of Parvo within literally one or two days (and even a few hours in some cases) after being given their shots.

We know that some of our customers get this, because they themselves have told us that their own children have developed ‘flu shortly after being given their ‘flu jabs.

Well, exactly the same thing is going on with dogs and their Parvovirus shots.

If you stop to consider this for a moment, the vaccines contain modified versions of the live virus, and they are designed to weaken the dog’s immune system, as that is how they are supposed to work – well, that’s the theory. To add insult to injury, many vaccines contain multiple viruses – anywhere from four to seven or eight at a time.

Lastly, and perhaps most disturbing of all, is the fact that your dog’s immune system can be weakened by any vaccinations, not just Parvo ones. The results of this are obvious: your dog will have an increased chance of becoming ill in the future.

Other side-effects of vaccinations include chronic inflammation, which will cause the obvious issues like arthritis, but it’s now been proven that inflammation is a leading cause of cancer.

To top it off, the vaccines themselves also contain a wide variety of toxic chemicals, none of which are good for your dog and could cause additional problems.

It’s good that the recommendation for annual booster shots has been reduced by the AVMA to just every three years, but even this is too much. Ongoing research has proven that vaccinations will provide immunity for at least seven years, and perhaps even life.

So in summary then, Parvo vaccinations are no longer that effective against the 2c strain, they may even give your dog full-blown Parvo, and they can cause long-term health issues such as cancer.

If you were to ask your vet, he’d probably disagree with all that we’ve said here, but please bear in mind – it’s your dog, and you have the right to be told all of the facts before coming to an informed decision about which Parvo treatment to go fo, and not be hectored into doing something you don’t want to do.

Why Buy Parvaid?

Posted by Admin under: Health.

If you buy Parvaid, together with other products such as Life Cell Immune Support, Doggie Pain Relief (aka Pet’s Pain Formula) and Vibactra Plus, then you’re giving your doggie a chance to survive the horrific Canine Parvovirus.

All of our products, including Parvaid, are 100% natural, containing herbs that are completely human-grade. There are no synthetics and no chemicals, which means that they are completely safe and have no side-effects, which is not the case with the prescription drugs and meds that your vet will try to give your dog.

We appreciate that you may be skeptical about the effectiveness of herbal products such as Parvaid, so let’s talk numbers for a moment.

How To Save Money On Costly Parvo Treatments – Part 1

Posted by Admin under: Health.

Parvo (more correctly known as Canine Parvovirus) is devastating, not only emotionally (mere words simply cannot do justice to how it feels to see your beloved dog healthy one minute, and incredibly sick the next, with vomit and blood-filled, foul-smelling diarrhea everywhere), but also financially.

From the minute you notice your dog isn’t well, the typical vet’s costs associated with treating Parvo just keep adding up (and up).

Could You Cope With A Parvo Outbreak?

Posted by Admin under: Health.

Here are some facts about Canine Parvovirus (also known as CPV, Parvo virus, or more commonly known as Parvo) that you might not know about:

  1. The problem is, once your dog has been infected, there are about 3-15 days when you will see no symptoms, but the virus is consuming large amounts of bone marrow, then moving on to consume and destroy a huge number of cells in the intestines – a lot of damage occurs at this stage.

  2. When your dog becomes infected and shows any of these symptoms (yellow frothy vomit, diarrhea [with or without blood], lethargy/no energy, wobbly, no appetite, dehydration, very depressed, etc.) then he may only have a few Read the rest of this entry »
