garlic for fleas-how does it work?
I am really interested in getting Mikko off of a chemical flea preventative. Right now he is on Comfortis, which isn't too bad considering he only gets it every three months or so since it seems to last so long.
I'd like to try the Springtime Bug Off, but I'm not sure it will work so great here in Florida, especially since my cats bring in fleas...
My question is how does the garlic work as a preventative since dogs don't have pores on their body that they sweat from-how is it repelling fleas? My old vet brought this up and it made sense at the time, but the garlic also seems to work for some people (he actually suggested brewer's yeast).
