Why do wet dogs smell like digestive biscuits?
I have had dogs but not in the last 20 years as cramp ones style a bit...
I am glad all you experts now realise its a coat/skin treatment, and not orally administered.
Nope, its not, just keep them away from water for 48 hrs, after treatment, and indeed, the chemicals degrade in the soil if washed off by rain.So, washing it off their coat and into the watercourse is OK, is it?
... just keep them away from water for 48 hrs, after treatment, and indeed, the chemicals degrade in the soil if washed off by rain.
We as Scottish anglers put more s h i t into watercourses fighting off midges.
Just pointing out that dogs dont piss it into water as implied by many on this thread.
Lets start at the bottom one.Where does it say that? Or did you just make that up?
Present your data to support this claim.
Well, they do, if they are given oral treatments... which it appears many are, given the myriad advertisements for oral flea treatments?
only if they eat it plus it degrades rapidly, it certainly works for whiteflyNeem oil is as bad as some of the chemicals mentioned here.
It prevents insects reproducing forever, and kills any eggs that had been produced prior to treatment.
yes I know all that, but so is fipronol!only if they eat it plus it degrades rapidly, it certainly works for whitefly
Its used a lot on humans for loads of things
Lets start at the bottom one.
Oral treatments are not fiprinol (the point of this thread).
Present my data to support my claim we use midge repellants profusely?
Its printed on the packaging of most spot on applications...
It stops ticks and fleas infesting my dogs.
The health and welfare of those dogs is important to me, having bred and trained gun dogs for 40 odd years, I do have a bit of experience in the effects of said ticks and fleas.
Lymes disease, although the most mentioned one, is not the only disease ticks carry.
I dont want any of them.
Dont we all do that in the way we live our lives?I'm not picking out fiprinol here. Insecticides are insecticides. That is why I asked what the active insecticides were in those ones I linked in. If the oral flea treatments contain insecticides and the metabolites end up in the water course, does it matter whether or not it was fiprinol what done it?
Not what I asked. I asked you to present your data to prove that midge repellents contribute more shit to the watercourses than insecticides used in flea treatments on pets.
Sound dubious, given the reports of its longevity in the environment. Marketing shpiel???
Aye, bottom line is you put your dogs before the health of our watercourses and the invertebrate life in them. That's your choice.
So from reading the thread, we shouldn't take our dogs for a pee in the river or let them pee on a lamp post thats in the river .yes I know all that, but so is fipronol!
Natural oil that wipes out insects, or synthetised one that does same?
Most folk would plump for the natural one, but end game is still the same.
Bottom line is you have been taken to task on several points, and found wanting, and you just dont like it.
Dogs pissing fiprinol into waterways?
No seed treatment of fiprinol in uk?
Chemical use for midges?
And yes, my dogs health is very important to me, as is the health of our watercourses, but I am not going to get all het up about a very tenious link between same.
... please check the facts.
