Flea Free Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How does FLEA FREE work?

A. When FLEA FREE is added to your pet’s food or drinking water, it goes to work internally producing an enzyme which shields the protein that the female needs to lay her eggs. If she can’t find what she needs, she jumps off, without biting, in search of another host to feed on. If she doesn’t draw blood within 20 to 22 hours she will die thus interrupting the productive cycle.

Q. Does Flea Free really work?

A. We do not claim that Flea Free works on all animals just as medications do not work on all individuals, however we found that 99.3% of animals tested had favorable results. This is why we are confident in offering a 100% money back guarantee. Either Flea Free works or it’s free.

Q. Is Flea Free safe?

A. Yes!  FLEA FREE products are all natural. They do not contain any poisons, chemicals, preservatives, artificial colorings, or flavorings. Flea Free products do contain garlic, vinegar, citrus, & beneficial herbs, all essential for the health of your pet.

Q. I have heard that garlic is not safe to give to pets.  Is this true or is it a myth?

A. The ingredient in garlic that can be harmful is the allicin.  Too much of it can lead to a type of anemia.  The garlic used in the Flea Free products is air-dried garlic, which contains the least amount of allicin.   Raw garlic has a high amount of allicin, so is raw garlic that can cause problems if used in excess.

The garlic in Flea Free has been highly recommended by the American Feed Control Officials,
Inc (AFCO) and has been given a GRAS (generally recognized as safe) listing.  It contains only 397
ug/gram post allicin compounds compared to 3,192 ug/grams in raw garlic, and the allicin
content is even higher in freeze dried garlic.  According to the National Institute of Cancer, these
post-allicin compounds are actually the most beneficial and desirable.  They produce strong
garlic odor in Air Dried Garlic which is responsible for its repellent properties.


The small amount of Flea Free used in the drinking water or food is so slight  that there is no cause for any concern.

Garlic has been used for centuries as an insect repellent  and has been known for its healing properties.  You may use this product with total confidence.  It is absolutely safe and is highly recommended.  In fact, many breeders use Flea Free on their nursing mothers food or in the water, and there is no harm for the new puppies.

Q. Can you use FLEA FREE with other vitamins, supplements and medications?

A. Absolutely! Flea Free can only enhance your pets health.

Q. How long does Flea Free take to start working?

Q: What if my pet wont drink it?

A: Keep in mind it is a food supplement and animals, especially cats, consider this a change to what they normally eat or drink. You should introduce it into their diet a little at a time until they become accustom to it. If that doesn’t seem to work you may introduce it to them in their food.

Q: Can I put it in their food?

A: Yes, in fact some dogs actually like the steak marinade flavor.  Just once a day is all it takes. If they are finicky start off by putting a little bit on a snack they really like and eventually work up to the full recommended allowance.

A: It can take as little as two days or as long as three weeks before you notice your pets stop itching. Your pets metabolism and size plays a big part in the process.

Q: Does Flea Free kill the fleas and ticks?

A: No, Flea Free is not a pesticide, a chemical, or a poison.  The fleas and ticks actually can’t find the protein, they need to survive, in your pets blood because it is blocked by an enzyme produced by Flea Free. The flea and other blood sucking parasites leave the host to find a meal and typically starve to death.

Q: Are fleas and ticks the only insects your products protect against?

A: No, although fleas and ticks are the most troubling to dogs and cats it is also effective against, mosquitoes, some types of biting flies, and in some cases it has been shown effective against intestinal worms.

Q.  How much do I give my dog?  Should I give my cat less since she weighs less?

A.  On the bottle there will be instructions on how much Flea Free to add.   The recommended amount is one teaspoon added to food or one tablespoon added to one quart of water.   This is based on a medium sized dog weighing around 35 lbs.

If you’re giving Flea Free Food Supplement to a cat, the amount that is put on the food can be cut in half.   In other words, you can add 1/2 teaspoon to the food.  If you’re giving the Supplement to a tiny kitten, you would only need to give 1/4 teaspoon.

If you’re giving the Supplement to a larger sized dog, you would increase the amount given in the food.  For instance, add  2 teaspoons to the food of a dog weighing around 70 lbs., and add 3 teaspoons to a dog weighing around 100 lbs.

Q. What is Flea Free’s shelf life?

A.  As far as we know, the longest amount of time a case of Flea Free sat in a garage, through seasonal temperature changes was three years, & it was still as effective as a newly processed batch.

Q. Is the Insect Spray all natural, and how long will it work?

A. The Insect Spray contains all natural scents that insects hate (oils of sesame, neem, citronella, melaleuca, cedar, eucalyptus, aloe vera, lemongrass and rosemary.  There are no poisons or chemical and no deet.

Even when pets are free of fleas or have been treated, it’s a good idea to use an insect spray when walking through a wooded or untreated infested area.  If you’re spending time around areas where insects breed, around the water, in swampy, wooded or rocky terrain, it is wise to spray your pet and yourself to ward off unwanted bites from insects.

One spray will last two to three hours and can be used as often as needed for protection.

Q. How do I use Pet Scents Herbal FLEA FREE Shampoo?

A. Pet Scents Herbal FLEA FREE Shampoo can be mixed with water or it can be used directly from the bottle. One 8oz. bottle will make two (2) gallons of shampoo. Many groomers mix it 8 to 10 parts water to 1 part shampoo. Then they spray the dog with it, leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes and rinse it off. This will kill the fleas or ticks that are presently on the animal. Also kills head lice.

Q. Does FLEA FREE shampoo really kill head lice?

A. YES! This was discovered accidentally when one mother was at wits end with her daughters lice infestation. The mother knew that FLEA FREE contains only all natural ingredients. In her persistent effort to finally rid the head lice epidemic that had taken over her home and life, she shampooed her daughters hair every other day with Pet Scents Herbal FLEA FREE shampoo for two weeks.  The lice and newly hatched lice from eggs were then gone.


Q. How long has the company been in business ?

A. The company has been in existence since 1986.


Q.   What is FLEA FREE’s guarantee policy?

A.  All natural Flea Free products are offered with a 100% guarantee, minus shipping costs. If Flea Free is not meeting the customer’s needs, I will work with you in an attempt to figure out why. Most of the time, the issue can be resolved and there is no need to return the product.

Two possible reasons are:

1.   You have purchased too small of a bottle for the amount of animals you are trying to treat and run out of the product before all of the fleas and ticks are gone. On average this takes 3 days up to three weeks to get rid of the fleas and the other blood-sucking insects.

Pure white animals sometimes take a little longer.

     2.   You are not giving the proper amount EVERY DAY until the fleas and ticks are gone.
