Flea treatments

Hi. Has anyone used a natural remedy for fleas? The more I read about the chemicals in flea treatments the less I want to use them. My dog Toby has an under active thyroid and is on permanent medication so I am extra cautious about what treatments he has. Thanks for any input

Thank you. Billy No Mates apparently has neem oil in the powder for ingestion. I’ve heard that this is bad to give orally but I’ll look at cooper and gracie website. Thanks again I know I’m probably being over protective :slight_smile:

Found another - LupoZeck. Only says it’s for tick prevention though. The Luposan UK website is here.
If you want more information, email the owner of Gentle, Beate Rothon.

I have been using the Cooper and Gracie and so far no sign of fleas. I use it every couple of weeks because my dog like to roll!

Brilliant. Thank you. I’ve looked at the reviews and they seem quite good so have ordered some. Thanks again

Hello, the best way to get rid of fleas is a spray that repels fleas, I spray it every day and there are no fleas, but your dog takes some medication, I don’t know how it works, but you can probably buy him an anti-flea collar
