They don’t call dogs man’s best friend for nothin! Dogs are the best – and so are the folks who care for them. First Saturday Lime is known as a safe and easy way to help:
- kill parasite larvae
- repel insects including fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, and more
- prevent the growth of bacteria in places like water bowls
- neutralize acid from urine
- reduce the likelihood of harboring infections in equine environments
- avoid pesticide use – incredibly important!
If possible, avoid pesticides entirely. Many pesticides can cause health problems for your pets, like drooling, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, red and itchy skin, eye irritations, and respiratory problems. Think a little use if okay? Not really. Indirect contact has a big impact too. Pets often bring pesticides inside the house and their bedding by carrying it on their paws or fur.
In addition, our formula is a mineral with alkaline properties and naturally formed calcium so it’s also great for repair and restoration of:
- urine damage to yards and lawns
- calcium deficiencies in pets and animals
Note: Years of story evidence from around the world support that in small amounts, First Saturday Lime’s formula is safe for your animal to ingest. How much? Don’t set a bowl of it next to their food but don’t be afraid if some is left over after the applications listed below. Put it this way, it’s made primarily of calcium carbonate, which is regularly used to clean tap water.
