It’s flea and tick season.
Is your furbaby protected?
According to the AKC the Flea and Tick Season in Florida is Year-Round!
Remy has been scratching up a storm. I think his flea collar is done. Let’s hope the same thing as last time doesn’t happen. I hate putting those chemicalized flea and tick collars on him. Almost every time I put a new one on Remy, his neck gets irritated and I end up taking it off. Waste of money if you ask me!
Although the last one I got him wasn’t too bad. I decided I wanted to try this new all natural one I saw. So I went ahead and ordered it.
When it arrived I could smell it immediately. It was that strong. It was still inside the bag, the box and the shipping package! Sheesh! This thing is POTENT! Upon opening the box, the bag that the flea and tick collar was in had a sticker:
The Flea and Tick Collar
I opened the bag and was quite surprised how cute the flea and tick collar is. It’s bright green and in circle shapes. With a cute little bone shaped clasp. Two of the circles clip inside the bone shaped clasp so it’s widely adjustable.
It’s actually quite long Max 62 cm/ 25″, which is good because Remy got a big neck! I have actually bought a flea and tick collar for him that said it was for large dogs and it didn’t fit him. But this collar fit Remy’s neck perfect and can even get bigger!
It can also be made pretty small and you can cut the extra off. Actually when I had small dogs growing up, I used to put the extra flea collar length inside their dog bed. A little tip for those of you who have small furbabies!
At first Remy did not want to have anything to do with the flea and tick collar. I think the smell was a little too overpowering to his nose. Dog’s noses tend to be more sensitive than humans and if I couldn’t deal with the smell at first I am sure he couldn’t either!
I ended up taking the collar off and setting it on a chair on my front porch to allow it to “air out”.
A week later
About a week later, I felt the flea and tick collar smell has dissipated enough.
Remy has happily been wearing the flea and tick collar for a week now. With no irritation like others have caused. I have also noticed him scratching less since he’s wearing it.
