Flea & Tick

New Beginnings German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue is a holistic/alternative rescue. We subscribe to a natural, holistic approach to animal care. Holistic medicine, by its very nature, is humane to the core.

Conventional medicine, dictates the use of pharmaceutical drugs and chemicals that have proven harmful and/or fatal to many unsuspecting pets and pet owners. New Beginnings encourages the use of natural products for the control of fleas and ticks.

If you currently have a dog who has taken Bravecto (fluralaner), Nexgard (afoxolaner), Trifexis, Simparica (sarolaner) or other chemical flea and tick preventatives and suspect ANY adverse reaction, check our resource links for information on what you can do.

This page is dedicated to informing the public to the dangers of using commonly prescribed toxic, sometimes fatal, flea and tick preventatives. We will also provide you with alternative options to safely and effectively treat fleas on your dog.
