Heartworm, Fleas, and Ticks, OH MY!!  Alternative Strategies!?!

Our parasitic organisms appear to be stronger, spreading in their range and more resistant to conventional chemical strategies. The conventional treatments have harmful effects for the animals and for the environment.  Many of our clients are too ill to safety tolerate chemical approaches to parasitic issues, and need to eliminate chemical exposure or minimally to have a decreased exposure to chemical toxins. Ivermectin class of drugs have known ill effects on soil health. This webinar will explore alternative herbal approaches to Heartworm treatment and prevention, and flea and tick prevention. It will include case studies of cured Heartworm dogs and an area with historically excellent Heartworm prevention using herbal strategies.
