The Parasite Dilemma

I recently did a podcast on a topic that normally comes up this time of year – pests and parasites. I can’t remember how many posts I’ve done on this topic but I’m certain quite a few of them. Just look at the tags, categories and blog posts that are linked with this post to find more.

I mentioned this topic again on a presentation on Your Pets’ Health I did for the Stream-A-Thon-for-Pets online event on May 1, 2020 recently.

Here is just one of MANY articles you can check out on this subject: Bravecto Flea Medication Suspected in Numerous Dog Deaths Worldwide.

Additionally I created an ebook, Pest-Free Dogs, on why we don’t want to use these toxic ingredients on our dogs and instead how to keep your dog pest-free, naturally. All you have to do is sign up for my newsletter and you’ll receive the link to download the ebook for free in your welcome email. You’ll find the sign up for the newsletter on the sidebar of this blog.

I’m sharing on what so many people fear, especially this time of year: pests and parasites. I think the world is in fear in this lockdown. Hopefully this topic will help release some fear so faith can reside there instead.


“…Perfect love casts out fear;...” ~1 John 4:18, NKJV

“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” ~3 John 1:2, NKJV

The greatest discovery of any generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering the attitudes of their minds.” ~Albert Schweitzer – this can determine health or dis-ease in us and our pets

Simple solutions are always considered irrelevant and inconsequential – even when they are true.” ~Chris Tiegreen


This post was meant to provide you with the resources to learn – the video, the podcast, the ebook. I hope this helps you and your dogs live a naturally pest-free spring and summer!

Until next time…

Have a PAWSitively, tail waggin’, NATUROPATHICALLY healthy day!
