Practice dog


Red Rabbits:!!  He was saved from tick poisoning  by antivenine, Intravenous fluids, acupuncture, herbal medicine and homeopathy ( Lathyrus 200c). Charissa uses Nexgard as a chemical prevention for ticks, with a combination of herbal meds and homeopathics. No prevention replaces routine checking for ticks after the pet goes into tick infested country.If the pet is chemically sensitive, Nexgard is not used. It is a matter of waying the risk of tick, the possibility of vigilant non chemical programs, and the risk of chemical sensitivity.Chemical semsitivity can be high in some immune mediated diseases.
