Book review: Natural Flea Control for Cats by Liz Eastwood
Liz Eastwood is a writer, certified nutritionist, and the publisher of the Natural Cat Care Blog. Liz and I share the same views on a lot of things when it comes to cat care, which is why I was delighted when she told me that she had put together a small e-book titled Natural Flea Control for Cats Made Simple. I expected it to contain solid, well-researched information, and I wasn’t disappointed.
If you’re still using chemical flea products on your cat, please educate yourself about the dangers of these products, and about how to control fleas without chemicals.
Liz’s book offers a simple and safe method to keep these pesky parasites away from your cat. In her book, Liz will tell you how to
- Get rid of and prevent fleas with clear, simple steps
- Avoid natural flea products that are toxic to cats and hazardous to eyes and lungs
- Save the money you would have spent on chemical products
- Do it all without fighting with your cat over things like flea dips
- How to get rid of fleas naturally
- Easy year-round flea prevention plan
- Flea control checklist
- Problem solving
- Natural flea control methods to avoid
- The trouble with chemical products
- Resource list
Even though I (thankfully) can’t speak from personal experience, I feel comfortable recommending Liz’s approach. I especially like that she states at the beginning of the book that essential oils are not safe for cats. This is a controversial topic, and many aromatherapists and manufacturers of essential oils claim that their products are safe to use around cats. Like Liz, I’m not convinced that this is true. I wouldn’t trust a manufacturer’s claims unless an independent source verifies them. Many of the natural flea control products on the market contain essential oils, which makes them unsafe for use around cats. Liz also mentions safety concerns with some other natural remedies such as garlic and diatomaceous earth.
The book is available on Amazon for Kindle or download to your PC. This may be the best $1.99 you’ll ever spend to keep your cat flea free withour risking her health.
I received a review copy of this book from the author. The complimentary copy did not influence my review.
