Ark Naturals is always concerned about flea and tick product use on cats. One issue with cats is that they self groom – the issue of how much they ingest and what problem can be caused is difficult to determine. Please read the directions on the label as it specifically informs to spray between the shoulder blades as it minimizes the cat’s ability to ingest the herbal ingredients.
Additionally, because of our concerns we advise cat owners as follows:
- If the cat is an indoor cat and is a single pet in a household – we generally don’t see the need for herbal or pharmaceutical flea and tick products.
- Flea and ticks present a greater problem when the cat resides in a dog/cat family household, and/or the cat is an indoor/outside cat.
- Think about your family’s lifestyle – and then make your decision.
If you choose to use a flea/tick product, please remember less is more. We urge you to read the manufacturers recommended use. We also urge you to do some homework. While the ingredients in Flea Flicker! Tick Kicker! historically have fewer adverse effects than other herbal ingredients – no product and no ingredient in the natural/botanical flea and tick category is 100% safe. The pet’s guardian should always process the overall health and or age of their dog or cat. Both issues factor into the safety of using our product as well as any other type of product in the category.
