A few months ago, my dog's veterinarian informed me that my dog was allergic to flea bites. 'But he doesn't have fleas!" I responded defensively. (In my family, a dog with fleas is viewed as the equivalent of a child with lice! Ewww!)
"Well," the vet responded, "he doesn't have fleas, but fleas do bite him, and he is allergic to their bites.
It took me a few minutes to grasp what he was saying. It seems that my dog gets bitten by fleas, but they don't hang around. They bite him, and then jump off, which is why I don't see fleas when I examine him. But he is crazy itchy from their bites!
Back I was to the drawing board as soon as our vet put my dog on prescription flea meds. Hard as I fight against long-term medications for my pets, I realize that I would have to keep them permanently indoors for all my natural treatment methods to work 100 percent. I was already using an amber collar on him, (apparently that was working to get the fleas to jump off him), but I wondered if I missed something that could do even more to reduce my pup's flea bites.
The supplement is loaded with Epicor, a safe and natural proprietary fermentation of whole food that's been demonstrated to strengthen and boost the immune system. The Zesty Paws supplement also contains colostrum, pre-and-probiotics, salmon oil, licorice root....
These ingredients that are not only safe for your dogs, they are super immune system regenerators that we should probably be taking ourselves!
And you know what? I started giving these supplements to my dog about a month ago and stopped his prescription flea medicine. My vet doesn't know yet, but my boy's not scratching or biting his legs like he was. And he is not the only dog who successfully separated from his medication. Read these reviews!
I'm still watching my dog's scratching behavior and checking him for fleas; one should always do that. But so far, these Zesty Paws Allergy Immune Supplements for Dogs are doing the trick! And as far as my dog is concerned, these peanut butter flavor supplements are his morning treat!
Here's another benefit:
