How to Prevent Your Dog from Getting Fleas - Cooper & Gracie™ Limited

Fleas thrive in warm and humid conditions, putting your pets more at risk during the Summer months. However, as the warmer weather arrives, you’ll likely see more of the pesky critters from early Spring. Typically found hiding in long grass and on wildlife, your dog’s cosy coat is the perfect new home.

It’s no secret that we’re devoted to preventing fleas the natural way. We don’t believe that toxins are the answer to any animal’s flea problems. Although chemical-based flea products will kill fleas, they come with risks to pet health. Some of the potential side effects of using over the counter flea treatments are vomiting, itchy skin, hair loss, diarrhoea, tiredness, unsettled behaviour and even seizures.

To keep our beloved dogs safe, we’ve worked hard to create all-natural products. To help you understand what to use and when this flea season, we’ve explored our best-selling products and how they work.

How to Repel Fleas on Dogs Naturally
