Sergeant’s Green Natural Flea Treatment Review
Are you looking for an effective, natural flea and tick treatment for your cat?
The more we learn about the long-term, and sometimes immediate, effects of chemical pesticides, the more we want a product that kills fleas and ticks naturally.
Sergeant’s claims to have just such a product and though they make a product for dogs as well, we’re going to focus on the one made for cats today.
Let’s take a look at Sergeant’s Green Natural Flea Treatment to see if it’s a safe and effective alternative to chemical pesticides for your cat.
Sergeant’s claims that their product kills and repels:
They also claim that the product works for up to 4 weeks and is safe for kids and animals even in multi-pet households.
The treatments comes in a 3-month supply packaged in individual doses.
- Peppermint Oil 10%
- Clove Oil 7%
- Lemon Grass Oil 3%
It also has canola oil, vanillin and citric acid. It sounds like it would smell pretty good, but I see one huge issue already: essential oils are bad for cats.
How it Works
Essential oils such as clove and peppermint are toxic and repellant to fleas, ticks and mosquitoes.
In fact, they’ve been used for centuries to repel parasites; remember the citronella candles that you take camping? Yup, citronella is a natural bug repellant. Be careful though; just because a product is natural doesn’t mean that it’s safe (think arsenic!)
Cats, particularly, are extremely sensitive to essential oils and can suffer neurological damage, either temporary or permanent, and can even die from them.
What Are Users Saying?
It should be noted that peppermint oil is toxic to cats. So is clove oil, and possibly even clove oil. Use any of these products with care and it’s not a good idea to put liquid essential oils on their skins or anywhere where they can lick it.
The price, should you decide to check into this for your dog, is extremely competitive at $5 or less per dose.
Apply between the shoulder blades of your cat. Reapply every 4 weeks if you choose to use it.
Product Warnings and Side Effects
We’ve already discussed the user complaints but strangely enough, the box doesn’t say anything about any of those reactions and actually advertises the product as a safe, natural alternative.
We don’t recommend using this product on your cat. If you’re looking for a safe, natural product, this isn’t the one for your cat.
