GreenPaws Flea and Tick Products Directory

Keep your pets safe, by choosing your flea and tick treatments with care. NRDC checked the listed ingredients of more than a hundred flea and tick products and found that many contain toxic chemicals that could poison pets and harm people, even when applied as instructed on the box. Pick from the list below, or use the search boxes to the right to find out about pet care products you are considering, which chemicals they contain and the level of risk they may pose. All products have been sorted into one of three potential risk levels. When chemical control is necessary, avoid the most toxic chemicals by selecting a product marked with one crossed-out paw. For more information, see "Toxic Flea and Tick Treatments" and "How to Control Fleas Without Chemicals."
