Proflax Keep off Me! - A Natural Approach to Fleas & Ticks

It’s that time of the year where the weather is starting to get a little warmer, which can only mean one thing - fleas and ticks! For many dog owners, Spring and Summer are stressful times due to the level of infestations and in some warmer wooded areas these pesky parasites are a year round nightmare! All in all, it’s pretty unpleasant for dog owners and even more so for our pets.

Fleas and ticks are common parasites that can infest our pets, causing discomfort, irritation, and sometimes serious health issues. When it comes to protecting them from fleas and ticks, it's essential to choose products that are not only effective but also safe and toxic free. Understanding why our dogs can get fleas and ticks, how a natural diet can help reduce them, recognising symptoms, and adopting a holistic approach to prevention are crucial for maintaining your dog's health and wellbeing.

Why dogs get fleas and ticks

Fleas and ticks are attracted to warm blooded animals. They typically infest dogs when they come into contact with infested environments, such as grassy, wooded areas, or other animals carrying these parasites. Fleas can jump onto your dog from other animals or infested bedding, while ticks often attach themselves when dogs brush against vegetation.

How a natural diet can help reduce fleas and ticks

A natural diet for dogs can play a significant role in reducing the likelihood of flea and tick infestations. A diet rich in high quality proteins, healthy fats (such as Omega 3), and essential nutrients will support your dog's overall health and strengthen their immune system, making them less attractive to parasites. Additionally, certain ingredients like garlic and brewer's yeast can act as natural repellents against fleas and ticks.

Symptoms of fleas and ticks on dogs

  • Scratching and Biting Excessive scratching, biting, or licking, particularly around the tail, belly, and hindquarters.
  • Visible Parasites: Actual fleas or ticks may be visible on your dog's skin or fur.
  • Skin Irritation: Redness, inflammation, or sores on the skin, often accompanied by hair loss.
  • Flea Dirt: Small black specks, often referred to as flea dirt, may be present on your dog's skin or in their bedding.
  • Anaemia: In severe cases of flea infestation, dogs may develop anaemia, characterised by pale gums and weakness.

What to avoid

  • Chemical based Products: Avoid where possible using chemical based flea and tick treatments as they may contain ingredients that could be harmful to your dog's long term health.
  • Overuse of Household Chemicals: Avoid using too many chemicals in your home as they can have adverse effects on your immune system/health due to their high toxic load.
  • Processed Diets: These types of dog foods/diets lack essential nutrients which may weaken your dog's immune system, making them more susceptible to parasites.
