NOTE - With any chronic disease process including SARDS, it is vital for you to realize that many monthly, applied or oral insect repellants, are endocrine interrupters that may have helped caused the original disease process and you should absolutely avoid their use.
Please read the article on Dr. Plechner’s Corner of my website entitled, Chemical Insect Repellents and please review the links.
At the very end of the article, there will be listed natural substances that claim to create the same protective results without causing chronic diseases that do not contain endocrine interrupters.
Hopefully this kind of information will help you and your veterinarian treat chronic diseases in your pet that may have been caused by using a monthly insect repellent.

Please remember, the damage that these endocrine interrupters may have caused, can remain permanent even in the face of correcting the endocrine immune imbalance.

For more information on this subject, please consider contacting your veterinarian, the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association.
