It is just like seeing one of your loved ones suffer and not being able to do anything about it. Well we have a solution that proves effective and it is flea and tick dips.
The Origin of Flea Dips
This is something that has actually been around since the late 1800’s. Pet owners used the same dips that were used by farmers to help them get rid of fleas and ticks that would affect their cattle. This product was once known as sheep dip but then took on the name of any concentrated flea-killing chemical diluted in water. The product wasn’t dangerous, as it included an ingredient called carbolic acid, which is also in many facial soaps that are commonly used today. However, as time passed, some of the chemicals being used to fight flea and ticks became harmful to pets. The harmful chemical known as DDT was used in many of these products but was later banned in early 1970’s. Today, the chemicals used in the dips that treat fleas and ticks are natural insecticides that are derived from flowers and plants.
Safe and Effective Flea/Tick Dips
If the dips didn’t work it is unlikely that we would still be using it today. As safe and effective as they are, it is still important that they are administered properly. Our Salt Lake City groomers at SLC Mobile Pet Groomers have the necessary skills and qualifications needed to safely treat your pets with flea and tick dips. In most instances someone with the right training administers the dips. If they are not correctly handled, they could be dangerous to humans, which is why only someone with the right credentials should handle the product.
