Flea collars for cats and dogs can contain a toxic cocktail of chemicals like carbaryl and propoxur, which are essentially dangerous insecticides your pets are forced to wear around their neck. To help your furry friends, try a few natural and preventative measures instead. Groom regularly and use a flea and tick comb to remove the pests from your pet's fur. Wash their bedding regularly and vacuum to help keep a clean sleep environment. And when looking for a flea repellent, talk to your vet about oral medications, which can do just as good a job as a collar.
