Organic Diatomaceous Earth -- Natural Topical Pest Control Powder for Pets

diaearth.jpg

Diatomaceous earth is formed from soft, siliceous sedimentary rock crushed into a fine light-colored powder. It is derived from freshwater sources and does not pose a significant health risk to pets or humans. Due to its absorbency, it is used as a primary ingredient in a type of cat litter.

Because food-grade diatomaceous earth is harmless to all animals, fish, and birds, it makes an excellent natural insecticide. Use it as a topical dusting powder for your pets with fleas, ticks, lice and other external pests. The D.E. (Diatomaceous Earth) scratches the insect's waxy outer shell causing death by dehydration.

This is a refreshing change from toxic pesticides. Get your own Diatomaceous Earth.

Hip Assist Harness for Senior and Injured Dogs

dogharness711.jpg

None of us are getting any younger, including our best buddies. No matter how enthusiastic our doggies might be, hip dysplasia, surgery, and muscle pain can sometimes make the act of actually getting up a challenge for them.

Not to despair. You can easily help your dog up into a standing position, steady him/her on the stairs, or ease entry and exit from a vehicle. This easy-to-use Hip Assist Harness cradles your dog completely and comfortably by lifting from the chest, not the legs. A nice soothing muscle massage (and a few cookies) may help as well.

CERTIFECT -- A New Flea and Tick Medicine for Your Dog, But Not Your Cat

dog_scratching.jpg

Odds are you or someone you know has had a tick-related disease. Most likely you treat your pets for tick and flea infestation. News is out that the patent that Merial holds on fipronil, one of the active ingredients in FRONTLINE Plus, is expiring with cheaper generic versions available or soon to be (see our pertinent post here).

certifect.jpg

Merial, the company responsible for the popular FRONTLINE flea and tick control products, has now kicked things up a notch with their latest topical treatment CERTIFECT. CERTIFECT kills ticks in 18 hours, rather than the current 24-48 hour time frame, and is also the only topical product that dislodges ticks. As with FRONTLINE Plus, CERTIFECT destroys the flea life cycle.

CERTIFECT should not be used on cats. For the PR announcement, click here. For a vet's take on the new product, click here.

All Stop Dead Bed Bugs Contact Killing Spray -- Non-Toxic Eco-Friendly Bed Bug Spray

bedbugspray.jpg

Bedbugs are on the rampage, and they are most common during the months of July, August and September, heavy travel months in the US. If you are on the road this summer or find them in your home, they could torment your pets as well.

Since our dogs spend most of their time lounging around on our beds, furniture and even our laundry, they are also vulnerable to bed bugs. Owners may not notice the bites under a dog's furry coat, and our pets suffer in silence.

This fresh, peppermint-scented All Stop Dead Bed Bugs Contact Killing Spray effectively will kill bed bugs and their eggs on contact--simply spray directly on the infested areas. Dead Bed Bugs Contact Killing Spray is eco-friendly and does not include harsh pesticides or carcinogens.

How to Choose Between Brand Name Pet Products and Generics -- Frontline Flea Treatment Court Battle

Frontline Plus for Dogs 6 Mths 45-88 Lbs.

Recently we saw a generic flea product at a department store that claimed to have the same active ingredients as FRONTLINE Plus. It is called PetArmor Plus and is only $28 for 3 months. Naturally first we wonder: Is it as effective? Then we think, Is the price difference worth testing a new, strange product on our best buddies?

Actually it's too late for now, since a U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia has ruled that sales of PetArmor Plus by Cipla Ltd. and Velcera Inc. infringes on Merial's patents covering its flea-and-tick product FRONTLINE Plus. The court barred the two companies from further sales of PetArmor Plus in the United States and ordered the seizure of existing inventory starting in the next 60 days.

In the meantime, we had found this answer online from veterinarian Dr Michael Watts in Star Exponent | How to choose between generic and a brand name product:

A: The short answer is I don't know. The active ingredient in Frontline is fipronil. There are now generic pet parasite products with the same active ingredient. However, that does not mean it is will work as well or be as safe as Frontline. At this point, these products have not been out long enough for me to make a personal determination.

My general rule of thumb is to wait for a year after a new product has been released before I will make a recommendation for my clients. I want someone else's pets to be the guinea pigs. Several times in my career this cautionary approach has kept me from recommending something that was later pulled from the market for safety reasons. If these generics prove to be just as safe and effective as Frontline over a year or more, then I will feel more comfortable with them.

The active ingredient is only one factor in the effectiveness of a topical flea and tick preventive. There are ant and roach baits at your local hardware store that use fipronil as their active ingredients. I would never suggest it would be alright to cut one open and put it onto your dog.
