Products We Recommend – Earth Animal Tick & Flea Control

The days of not needing to worry about ticks are long gone as the reports of ticks, and tick-borne diseases are mounting.  Green Acres has declined to carry many of the products available on the market promoted for flea and tick control due to the nature of the chemicals in these products and the potential toxicity for your pets. We continue to believe that it is in your pet’s best interest to purchase products containing insecticides directly from your veterinarian as they are equipped to discuss the benefits of those products as well as the risks. However, we are pleased to now offer several products from Earth Animal for protection from ticks and fleas that are both effective and safe.

Who Is Earth Animal?

Earth Animal is an American company owned by veterinarian Dr. Bob Goldstein and Susan Goldstein. Since 1979 they have been dedicated to helping thousands of dog and cat parents achieve their pets’ health and healing objectives with natural products. If your dog is a fan of No-Hide® dog chews, the safe alternative to rawhide, then you are already familiar with Earth Animal and have an understanding of their commitment to quality.

Earth Animal’s Approach to Tick & Flea Control

Earth Animal flea and tick products are NOT toxic pesticides designed to kill fleas and ticks. Instead Earth Animal uses a two-step protocol using herbs, essential oils, flower essences, nutrients, vitamins and minerals to repel ticks and fleas from both the inside and outside of your pet. All of these products are 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Green Acres Experience with Earth Animal

We started evaluating the Earth Animal flea and tick products with our own pets (and ourselves) late last summer. We liked the results we saw, along with the company’s satisfaction guarantee and commitment to quality and safety. We know that many of you, just like us, are looking for a non-toxic, yet effective product for keeping your precious pet free of fleas and ticks.

Podcast – A Holistic Approach to Vaccines for Dogs – Part 1 w/Dr. Judy Herman

< Click to Listen to Podcast >

In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from July 15th, 2017, Kate and Don talk with Dr. Judy Herman of the Animal Wellness Center in Augusta, Maine. In this show, we discuss what vaccines are and why vaccines are important for our pets. We discuss the different type of vaccines; modified live, killed, and recombinant and the differences between them and the infectious organisms they address; viruses versus bacteria. The Rabies Challenge Fund is discussed along with their latest research that indicates the Rabies vaccine is good for at least seven years. Chronic diseases that have been linked to over vaccinations are also addressed. Dr. Herman explains titer testing as an alternative to vaccinations for pets that have had reactions to vaccinations.

In the second segment of the show, Dr. Herman discusses which vaccines she recommends for puppies and older dogs starting off with an assessment of the dog’s health before she recommends anything. She stresses that it is imperative that a dog be healthy when vaccinated. The immunity puppies receive from their mother is also explained.

In the last segment of the show, we discuss the American Animal Hospital Associations (AAHA) recommended core vaccines; vaccines that the AAHA recommended for every dog. We also discuss the pros and cons of getting multiple vaccinations in a single shot or doing them singly at separate appointments. We consider dogs that are more likely to have an adverse reaction to a vaccine and some of the vaccine ingredients, like Mercury, that are suspected of causing adverse reactions. One reason why you want to ask your veterinarian about the specifics of the vaccines that they are using.

You can hear The Woof Meow Show on The Pulse AM620, WZON, and WKIT HD3 at 9 AM on Saturday. If you are not near a radio, listen on your computer at http://www.wzonthepulse.com or your smartphone or tablet with the free WZON 620 AM app. A podcast of the show is typically posted immediately after the show and can be downloaded at www.woofmeowshow.com and the Apple iTunes store.
