18. Cheap Flea Repellent
When shopping for flea prevention products, many just grab whatever box the store has on sale. The cheap products may work somewhat, but they are inferior to the better ones containing trusted ingredients. Better to look for the generic brand of a good topical product if you are on a budget than getting one of those powdery collars. The cheap stuff is smelly, messy and your pet may end up infested, although you did “treat” them. You will only pay in vet bills when their skin becomes infected. Still, the bargain brands fly off the shelves and many pet owners swear they are “just as good”. If only we could ask the pet.
