Such a relief to find something to help my pup that is not going to harm him like all the flea and tick meds that truly believe messed up his immune system originally.
But I do want to comment on the fantastic customer service of this company. A rare find these day. I am also very pleased with the quality of the other products I ordered from them, including the companion Kin Kind flea spray that I use when we go on walks.
