Dr. Elliott's Natural Health Emporium: Fleas
How can we combat those nasty parasites? Begin with a healthy immune system!

vine, fruiting trees. It is a time when nature pours forth
all of her glory and beauty. It is also the dawn of a new
Spring brings a re-emergence of that nasty flea waiting to strike
your pet. The blood sucking, irritating little parasite can cause

How can we combat those nasty parasites? Begin with a
healthy immune system. It’s true—fleas are more attracted
to animals with a weak immune system or illness. Provide the best
nutrition, preferably organic, and keep your pet’s environment
natural, and free of chemicals.

they contain poisons that successfully kill fleas but introduce
lethal poisons into your pet’s blood stream. Nature sends
the pests but she sends the solutions!
