We recently had an enquiry regarding the use of garlic in Flee Flea so decided to take this opportunity to explore the matter further as there is a huge amount of negativity regarding feeding garlic to animals on the internet. We hope that the following will help to allay any fears you may have regarding feeding garlic to your beloved pets.
The following text has been taken from the Flee Flea manufacturer's website:
I have heard garlic is poisonous for animals. Flee Flea contains garlic, is it safe?
We have heard that too, but we were originally given the recipe for Flee Flea from a veterinarian who was a customer at our Health Shop, and have since double checked this with some of our other veterinarian customers who use and sell Flee Flea.
One of our biggest stockists is the Animal Health Centre in Orewa who sell a lot of Flee Flea to their customers. Owner Sarndra Urwin, Animal Naturopath, confirms that Flee Flea has proved very popular with their clients, who use it to repel fleas and also as a general tonic, and they have not had one adverse report.
