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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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,
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.
