Question Alternative Flea Treatment - Has Anyone Tried These?

Hi All - has anyone tried, or heard anything about, Flea Treats? (See the link below)....

flea treats, natural flea control for dogs and cats

I live in warm, sunny San Diego, and MUST treat my girls year-round against fleas (which DO NOT die, or EVER go dormant here). I absolutely abhor dousing their (my girls') precious coats with the topical chems, which make them lethargic and yucky-feeling all day (not to mention the effects monthly dosing over the course of their lives will have on them!). I met someone at the local dog park that has been using Flea Treats for over a year, and they are working beautifully - but, of course, I'm skeptical....

No idea on those but some good natural remedies include garlic, apple cider vinegar and diatomaceous earth. Essential oils also make good repellents (not sure which off top of my head) but they are highly toxic to cats

my holistic vet gives me Vetri Science wipes and spray for fleas and ticks. Good stuff and you can find it online
