Are Flea Treats only for dogs? No. Flea Treats are for dogs and cats.

Will my pets like them? Yes. Flea Treats are flavored with real liver--not an artificial flavoring. Pets love the taste of Flea Treats. You can even use them as training rewards for your pet.

Should I feed my pets Flea Treats in the winter? We think so, and here's why: First, your pet has grown accustomed to a tasty treat. How do you explain to Rex that he's cut off because it's too cold out for fleas? Second, the B vitamins in Flea Treats are good for your pet even when the fleas aren't terribly active. Third, in many parts of the world (like here in Southern California, where we live), fleas don't take a winter vacation. Finally, because it takes about 10 to 20 days for the Flea Treats to develop your pet's natural flea repellent, you may have fleas in the spring unless you're very good at predicting when the local weather will warm up.

I've tried brewer's yeast, or brewer's yeast and garlic. How is this different? We use brewer's yeast simply as the base for our tablet. Brewer's yeast alone is very hit-or-miss as a vitamin source. We use a special brewer's yeast that hasn't had all the vitamins leached out of it. Then we add in additional B vitamins so we know there's an adequate quantity in the Flea Treats to protect your pets. Flea Treats are also made to the same standards of quality and purity as vitamins for people. That's how we can guarantee our Flea Treats--we know we have enough vitamin B inside to do the job. As for garlic, commonly in cats, and less frequently in dogs, ongoing ingestion of garlic can cause anemia. Besides, we've never seen any convincing evidence that garlic repels the bugs. We know the B vitamins work, and we know they're safe for your pets. So we stick with what we know.

Will I smell the repellent emitted by the Flea Treats? No, neither you nor your pet will notice an odor. Fleas can smell it, though, and they don't like it a bit.

If pets don't sweat, how does the repellent come out? Dogs do sweat, but only through their pads and tongues. The odor is emitted by the skin cells themselves. That's why it takes a little time for the Flea Treats to start working. The skin cells manufactured by your pet once you've started feeding the Flea Treats have to work their way to the surface of your pet's skin.

My pet is pregnant. Can I use Flea Treats? Yes! Flea Treats are not only safe for pregnant and nursing dogs and cats, they're actually good for them. Bitches and queens in reproductive mode need higher doses of Flea Treats, because their metabolic rate is higher. But if you give a nursing mom a high dose of Flea Treats, some of the excess vitamin B is shed through her milk, so the pups or kittens get some protection right from birth.

I have a 6 week old puppy or kitten. What about Flea Treats for a baby? Again, Flea Treats are not only safe, they're good for your baby pet. Growing "kids" need higher doses than adult dogs or cats, though. We send you detailed instructions for babies with your first order.

My pet is elderly. Are Flea Treats okay? Flea Treats are a super choice for an aged pet. By choosing Flea Treats, you're keeping the pet healthy and comfortable in its sunset years and avoiding exposure to potentially stressful hormones and insecticides at the same time.

I have an exotic pet. Are Flea Treats okay? We've done extensive testing with dogs and cats, and we guarantee Flea Treats for those pets. Beyond those species, our customers tell us that with other types of pets that are natural carnivores, they've had good results. We don't recommend Flea Treats for rabbits, for example, because the liver that flavors the Flea Treats isn't a natural part of a rabbit's diet. But if you have a ferret, a rat, or another type of pet that eats meat, Flea Treats are a fine choice.

Do fleas have to bite my pet for Flea Treats to work? No. With Flea Treats, the fleas simply won't get on your pet in the first place, no matter where your pet goes.

Will Flea Treats keep fleas out of my carpet? Because Flea Treats don't kill fleas, they won't remove fleas from your carpet. We provide you with a suggestion for a safe, inexpensive way to remove fleas from your carpet with your first order of Flea Treats. Once you remove those fleas, as long as your pet is using Flea Treats, you shouldn't have a problem in your home. The fleas won't get on your pet to hitchhike into the house.

How soon will I notice Flea Treats' effectiveness? 10 to 20 days is typical for most pets.

Do I need to feed the Flea Treats every day? Yes. The B vitamins in Flea Treats are water soluble, so they can't build up in your pet's system. That's a nice safety factor. Your pet could eat a whole jar, and whatever isn't metabolized flushes right through. The other side of that coin is that in order for Flea Treats to be effective, your pet is depending on you to keep the Flea Treats in the pet's system. That's why we make them taste good--feeding Flea Treats is fun, rather than a struggle or a chore.

Do you make Flea Treats in powder, or in another flavor? Flea Treats come in tablet form, flavored with liver. If you have a pet who isn't fond of treats, or who has dental problems, it's easy to pulverize the tablets. You can twist them between your thumbs, or run them through a coffee grinder. Then you can stir the resulting Flea Treat powder into your pet's food, or sprinkle it over your pet's food.

My pet ate a whole jar of Flea Treats! Should I worry? Because the B vitamins are water-soluble, whatever your pet can't metabolize flushes harmlessly through the pet's system. The same is true for people, by the way. If a child gets into a bottle of Flea Treats and eats them, the ingredients are harmless to the child.

My pet has a skin condition. Every summer it gets these bumps and raw spots. Many pets are allergic to fleas. In dogs, the allergy typically presents as a "hot spot" at the base of the dog's tail or along the flanks. It's worse in summer, not so bad in the winter. Cats get scabby spots along their necks and down their backs. Again, the allergy is usually worse in the summer months. This seasonality may not present itself if you live in a very mild-winter climate. Flea Treats are an especially good choice for pets with allergies, for two reasons: First, Flea Treats are the only approach to flea control that prevent the fleas from ever getting on the pet in the first place. And if the fleas aren't on your pet, they can't bite to aggravate the allergy. Second, Flea Treats contain B vitamins, which are the vitamins for the skin and coat. Once the pet isn't being bitten anymore, they'll go to work to help heal that irritated skin. Some of our most devoted customers have pets with allergies to fleas.

Do you accept checks or credit cards? Yes. You can mail us a check, or your credit card number and expiration date. Or you can order right over the internet, using your credit card. See our order form for details.

What is the shelf life for a bottle of Flea Treats? Always store Flea Treats in a cool, dark place with the lid on the jar (but not in the refrigerator). We recommend that you use up your supply of Flea Treats within a year of opening the jar. An unopened jar can be stored a year prior to opening and still last for a year once opened. If you have some "old" Flea Treats lying around, they won't hurt your pets, but their potency and effectiveness may be reduced. Your pets may not enjoy the flavor after all that time, either.

Do you offer wholesale pricing? Yes, we do make our product available at wholesale to qualified wholesale purchasers. Contact us for further details.

My pet is under a veterinarian's care. Are Flea Treats safe? Flea Treats are good for your pet and shouldn't interfere with any veterinary treatment. Ask your vet if you're unsure. If your pet has diabetes and requires supplemental insulin, be sure to ask your veterinarian if the additional B vitamins will affect the amount of insulin your pet requires.

I've used B vitamins to repel mosquito bites on camping trips. Do Flea Treats work the same way? Yes.

Do Flea Treats repel ticks? We offer an unconditional money back guarantee on our Flea Treats. We developed them to repel fleas. But so many customers told us that their pets' tick troubles were over too, that in 1997 we extended our guarantee to include ticks. So far we've had very good results.

When is a puppy or kitten old enough for a bath? Opinion varies on this one. As a general rule, don't bathe your baby until all vaccinations are completed, usually around 4 months of age. At any age, too-frequent bathing can dry and irritate your pet's skin.

Do shampoos kill fleas? Yes. Any soapy water kills fleas. But once bathed, shampoos won't keep the fleas off your pets. That's why you need to add Flea Treats to your pet's routine. Keep those fleas off your pet no matter where you take it. And if you rinse the shampoo properly, no shampoo, insecticidal or not, will provide residual relief from fleas.

If I eat Flea Treats, will the fleas stay away from me? Flea Treats would keep fleas from you and they're safe for human consumption. But unless you're really fond of the flavor of real liver, we suggest that you get a high potency B vitamin complex formulated for humans.

We dip our pets now. Do we need Flea Treats? If you began now with the Flea Treats, you could discontinue the dips, drops, powders, sprays, collars, shampoos, and all the other insecticidal flea control products. Those products don't begin to work until after the flea is on your pet and they expose your pet, and all the humans around the pet, to insecticides. Flea Treats prevent the fleas from getting on your pet in the first place, and they're insecticide free. They're actually good for your pet.

What if I'm not satisfied? We offer an unconditional money-back guarantee. Use up a bottle of Flea Treats. If you're not pleased with what we've done for your pet, send the empty bottle back to us (our address is right on the label) and we'll refund your money. We think you'll be pleased, though.

How often should I bathe my dog? Don't bathe your dog any more frequently than is necessary to keep the pet reasonably clean. Do comb or brush your pet regularly, however. Most dogs and cats enjoy the attention and grooming removes dirt, debris, and tangles from the coat.

Why does my pet have dry skin? Excessive bathing, arid climates, nutritional deficiencies, or a poorly chosen shampoo can all cause skin problems.

What causes bad odors on pets? This problem is more common with dogs. If the dog isn't dirty, but stinks, likely culprits are teeth, ears, and anal sacs. Your vet can assist you in determining the source of the problem and the best course of action. Our FTI pets get regular tooth brushing and ear cleaning, and they all smell lovely.

Should I bathe my cat? Your cat may need a bath if a health condition prevents the cat from normal grooming, or if the cat has gotten a toxic substance (motor oil, antifreeze, etc., etc.) on its coat. Trim claws before you begin and proceed with patience, love, and caution.

I feed my pet a good pet food. Why do I need Flea Treats for my pet? Even the best quality pet foods don't contain the specific proportions and quantities of B vitamins needed to keep the fleas off your pets. And none of the pet foods guarantee that they'll keep fleas away. We do. Continue to feed the best quality pet food that you can afford. Add Flea Treats for safe, natural, effective flea control.

Could I just give my pet my B vitamins? You could, but we can't guarantee the results. Flea Treats are specially formulated for dogs and cats. The proportions and quantities of the various B vitamins are specially made for pets, as well. They differ from what's ideal for people. Without the real liver for flavor, your pet might not want to eat the vitamins. Finally, if you're using good quality vitamins, you probably won't save any money using human vitamins for your pet.
