Why Vet’s Best (My Vet’s Best Flea and Tick Spray Review)
Our Vet’s Best Flea and Tick Spray Review is based on our experience only. Your results may vary. Please make sure you read and follow all instructions. Seek medical attention if you experience adverse reactions to this product.
Last fall, Skynyrd, our coonhound came down with a horrible case of the
itches. That poor guy was scratching constantly. It was so bad it was keeping the wife and me up at night. We use flea drops (frontline mostly) on a regular basis so we ruled out fleas. I mean, How could there be fleas if we are using flea protection?
Well, we picked up a flea comb and sure enough, there were still signs of fleas at the base of his tail. We treated him, but there were still fleas somewhere. I suspected the couch. After all, it is where he spends 98% of his day sleeping.
Because we were going to be using it in the house, I wanted something safe. Not Just for Skynyrd, but also for the family and for the furniture itself. I started the search on Amazon.
What We Were Looking For
There are a lot of flea sprays out there. Narrowing it down to just one was tough. I needed something strong, safe and fast. And I didn’t want it to break the bank. When I typed Best Flea and tick spray into the search bar on Amazon, Vet’s Best immediately caught my eye. With over 5000 reviews Vet’s Best Home Spray had a four-star rating. Upon further digging, I found that over half of the users gave it a Five Star rating. That’s pretty impressive right there. There were some concerns listed in those reviews and I will talk about them as well.
The Vet’s Best Flea and Tick Spray review data coupled with the features of the product had me sold. It is made from plant-based ingredients, It won’t stain carpet or furniture and is safe enough to use directly on your pet. And Best of All, It’s made in the USA. How could I go wrong?
It’s Here! It’s Here!
We placed the order and since we are members of Prime, It was at the door in 2 days. If you don’t have Amazon Prime, get it. It is worth every penny. I opened the box and pulled out the bottle which was sealed inside of a plastic bag. I have to be honest here, I was a little disappointed. The cap of the bottle was loose and some of the product leaked out. Luckily the plastic bag was there to catch the spill. It wasn’t enough to file for a return or anything, Just a case of wet hands.
On the plus side, It smelled amazing. Vet’s Best Flea and Tick House Spray has Peppermint and Clove Essential oil as two main ingredients for warding off the fleas and ticks. Make sure you read the instructions before you use the product. At least one Vet’s Best flea and tick spray review on Amazon said that clove oil is highly toxic to cats. I don’t know if that is true or not, but if you have cats, you may want to be careful how and where you use the spray.
What We Liked about Vet’s Best Flea and House Spray
As I mentioned before, there were certain things that really pulled us in the direction of the Vet’s Best Flea and Tick House Spray. We liked the natural aspect of the spray. We use essential oils for other things like cleaning and personal hygiene in the house. The fact that Vet’s Best was using it to fight off fleas and ticks was a plus to us. There is a lot of inconclusive data about peppermint oil for fleas on dogs, but the fact that this is preformulated mad me feel a lot better about using it around Skynyrd.
Since we were using it on the furniture, we wanted a product that didn’t mark or stain our furniture. Listen, We have dogs. We have kids. Our furniture isn’t in the best of shape as it is, but there is no reason to make it worse by adding some kind of chemical that could stain or discolor the fabric. We tried it first on a back corner of the couch where it was hidden by the coffee table. After a couple of hours, we checked it again and decided to give it a go on the rest of the couch. No Worries.
The price was right. No arguing that. I am a huge fan of products that are Made in America. I feel a lot better when I can support our country and fellow citizens. And the biggest bonus: It made the house smell great!
But, Did It Work?
We used the spray exactly as the product packaging stated. A light spray is all they suggest. Now, we did wash all of Skynyrd’s bedding in super hot water before we used it there and gave the couch and carpet a good once over twice with the vacuum before we sprayed.
We vacuumed again the next day and reapplied and the same the next day. There was plenty in the bottle to do it. That weekend, we washed the bedding again and gave it another spray.
The effects weren’t immediate as far as the scratching goes. I figure he had some bites that still needed to heal up. We even gave him a squirt and rubbed it into his fur. A little added protection along with the Frontline.
We continued to check his coat with the comb and within the first week, signs of any fleas were gone. I do not have any experience with this product and the claims for ticks, but if it takes care of them as well as it took care of the flea problem in the house, Vet’s Best has one amazing product.
Some Vet’s best flea and tick spray reviews on Amazon that said it didn’t work for them, I don’t know what to say. Maybe they didn’t follow the directions or maybe they have a problem that was bringing more fleas into the area after it was treated. I can’t say to know for sure, but I can say that the product worked for us.
Staying Flea Free
We are going to keep Vet’s Best flea and tick spray in the house. Just in case there is another flare up. We still use it about once a month after vacuuming just to stay ahead of any issues that might be coming up, but there hasn’t been a major incident since the first time we had to use it.
If you have a flea or tick problem. I encourage you to pick up a bottle of Vet’s Best Flea and Tick Home Spray. Give it a try. Make sure you are getting the home spray. Do not confuse it with the Vet’s best kennel spray. It is for outdoor use only.
If you do give it a try, drop us a line and let us know. We would love to hear from you. If you find anything that you feel is inaccurate in our Vet’s Best Flea and Tick Spray Review, please let us know that too. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you found this post helpful and informative.
