Frequently Asked Questions
How often do I need to feed it to my pet?
Our soft chews should be given daily to help your pet build and maintain deterrence against fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
How long does it take to start working?
It should take about 4 weeks of daily consumption for the full effects to kick in.
So after the initial 4 weeks, do I need to continue feeding the chews?
Yes, consistency is key! We strongly recommend continuing the daily feeding to maintain the natural resistance your pet has built up from the chews. The benefits of our product are only in effect while your pet(s) are given them so once you stop, the effects of the chews may go away.
What if I only get fleas in my area seasonally?
Since the benefits of our product are only in effect while your pet(s) are given them, it is up to you when your pet needs the flea protection. If you want the peace of mind of having deterrence all year round, then we recommend using them year round. We do have both customers who order seasonally and customers who order year round, depending on their environment and what they've experienced with fleas and other pests at their location.
Where is it made?
Our products are manufactured in the state of Illinois in a FDA-approved facility with SQF Level 3 certification.
Does your product contain any chemicals or medication?
Absolutely not! There are no chemicals or medication in any of our chews. We believe in taking a natural and holistic approach to pet care and our products reflect those values.
Does your product kill fleas?
No, our product does not work to kill fleas since it does not contain any chemicals, like insecticides in traditional flea treatments. Instead, it works to help your pet build a natural resistance to fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes to prevent an active infestation from taking place on your lovely pet.
What if my pet already has fleas? Can they take your product? Will the Natural Flea Deterrent chews kill the fleas?
As you use our Natural Flea Deterrent, the natural ingredients build up in your pet’s system and create a natural shield that helps protect against infestation. Over time, the deterring properties of our soft chews should eventually stop an active infestation, but best use of our product is in a preventative fashion, to keep pests from taking up residence with your lovely pet.
We recommend getting rid of the fleas first and then supplementing our chews to keep the fleas off your pet so you don’t have to fight an active infestation! In the case of an active infestation, our product works best in conjunction with other natural home remedies, such as flea shampoo and flea combs.
We tend to think of our product as a safe, healthy first defense that can help you avoid the need to use toxic chemicals on your pets. Here are some natural home remedies to treat fleas and ticks that may be of use to you:
Are your products safe for puppies/kittens?
Although our product is painstakingly manufactured to be safe for all ages, we recommend checking in with a veterinarian as puppies/kittens usually have not been tested for allergies. If your dog/cat has allergies that haven't been identified - for example to chicken or grains used in our chew - they may have a reaction.
Are your products safe for pregnant/nursing pets?
Although our product is safe for all dogs, our product is not intended for pregnant dogs and we recommend consulting with a veterinarian before feeding our chews.
Are your products safe for pets on medication or with medical conditions?
Our products are formulated without any chemicals or medication, so it should be safe for all pets. However, we always recommend screening the product with your veterinarian if your pet has a medical condition or is currently taking any prescription medication.
Is it safe to use if my pet is currently taking prescription flea medication or using another flea treatment?
Our chews are made with all natural ingredients and formulated without any chemicals or medication, so it should not cause any danger to be used simultaneously with other flea medication. However, we always recommend consulting with your veterinarian.
What’s the difference between your Natural Flea Deterrent chews for Cats and Dogs?
Both have the same great flea-deterring formula! The main difference is the ingredients we use for flavoring to tailor to each animal’s palatability. The dog chews are flavored with real chicken heart and liver. The cat chews are flavored with catnip, cat-specific chicken and cream flavor.
My pet is allergic to chicken and/or grains.
We do not recommend our Natural Flea Deterrent chews to your pet, since we include chicken and grains in this product. However, we do have some hypoallergenic formulas available, that are free of chicken and grains, such as our Omega-3 Fish Oil chews for Dogs and Pre+Probiotic chews for Dogs!
My pet is having a reaction (diarrhea, vomiting, lethargic)!
We’d recommend to stop feeding the chews for a few days and see if the symptoms resolve. Then start again and if symptoms return, then discontinue the use of our product. We also recommend consulting with your vet to check for any potential unidentified allergies your dog may have with any of the ingredients we include in our chews.
