Amber Crown Flea and Tick Collar Review

Amber Crown flea and tick collarWe’ve talked about the benifits that Baltic amber has for babies and kids this week, now it’s the furbaby’s turn.  How could Baltic amber help your dog or cat?  Would you believe that it may actually help prevent fleas and ticks?!  I must admit that before I applied to review the Amber Crown Flea and Tick Collar, I had no idea either.

We’ve been using Frontline/Advantage/Advantix for years and years to help prevent a flea infestation again, they worked really well, but I always worried about the chemicals I was putting on my dogs.  I worried for their safety and the safety of the chemicals around Goose and the rest of us.  We really didn’t think we had a choice though.  I knew from my years of working in vet clinics that the “all natural” topical flea products from the store just didn’t work.

Amber Crown Flea and TIck CollarYou are probably asking yourself, how does a rock help prevent fleas and ticks. Well, according to the people at Amber Crown, the Baltic collars work like this.  Baltic Amber is a tree resin that has been fossilized for millions of years.  When the raw Baltic Amber rubs up against your dog or cat’s fur, it causes aromatic terpenes to be released, thus repelling fleas and ticks.  Another way that it works is causes static electricity, fleas and ticks do not like this and let go of the animal.

Amber Crown Flea and Tick COllarSophia doesn’t mind the collar at all.  She has been wearing it for almost a month now, we’ve not seen any ticks.  I have seen some fleas, however, we have been taking the collar off while she was playing with the other dogs or my sister’s dog.  The two fleas we found was when she wasn’t actually wearing the collar, and the fleas were moving really slow so I believe they were dieing.

The Amber Crown flea and tick collar has a really nice leather closure.  I was really impressed with the quality of the clasp and the leather.

 

Amber Crown Flea and Tick CollarThere was one little adjustment that I made to the collar.  The leather strap that closure does not have anything that holds the extra strap down.  I added a small rubber band just to keep that piece down.  It never bothered her, but it irritated me I don’t know how, but it did.

Overall, I am really surprised how well the Amber Crown flea and tick collar has worked.  I may not completely give up using Frontline/Advantage, but maybe not quite as often.

If you are interested in the Amber Crown Flea and Tick Collar, you can find them on Amazon (PRIME!!!).  They are currently about $31, but that is not a bad price considering they do a 100% guarantee for 100 days, and if it works for you then you will have about a year’s work of flea and tick protection in one collar.

KG Baby Amber Teething Necklace

Baltic Amber necklace

 

When Goose was a tiny baby I learned about the AMAZING effects of Baltic amber on pain and inflammation.  I was quick to try it because she was starting to cut teeth, and she needed something to help with the pain. I don’t know if it was a mental fix or if the Baltic amber really helped, but when a few days she was no longer crying in pain or drooling as much as she was.

Baltic Amber NecklaceGoose wore that necklace for the next year and a half.  Only taking it off to bathe and then when I took her to the doctor (I’ll admit it, I was trying to avoid a fight with her doctor about the effectiveness of the necklace).

In case you don’t know how Baltic Amber works, Here is the best article I’ve seen recently about everything Baltic Amber.

Baltic Amber NecklaceSo, recently Goose started complaining about growing pains.  She would tell me that her legs or knees hurt.  I remember that from when I was little, and I remember how uncomfortable it was. I instantly reached for our old trusty Baltic amber necklace, only it was no where to be found.  I don’t know if it got lost in the move or if maybe its still in a box somewhere, but it was obvious I was going to have get a new one.

KG Baby was kind enough to let me review one of their Baltic Amber Teething necklaces, and I honestly really like this Baltic Amber necklace better.  The beads of Baltic amber are bigger, which makes me believe that Goose is getting more skin contact with them.  I also like that each bead is knotted twice.  This keeps 1) the beads from going everywhere if broken, and 2) keeps the necklace from becoming as much of a choking hazard.

Baltic Amber NecklaceThe clasp itself is something very special.  The clasp is a screw clasp, so babies cannot undo the necklace and chew on the beads.

So far, the KG Baby Baltic Amber necklace seems to be really helping Goose and her growing pains.  I know that she hasn’t been complaining as much about her leg hurting, well, not until it’s time to pick up her toys or help with her chores.

If you would like to purchase a KG Baby Baltic Amber necklace, you can do so on their website or on Amazon (PRIME!!!).  The current price is $15, and I have to admit that is a TON less than what I paid for Goose’s first baltic amber necklace.

There are two different sizes you can get the Baltic Amber necklaces in on Amazon.  I got the 12″, and it fits Goose very well, and she is 4 years old. Also, if you go on KG Baby’s website, you can choose between a multi colored stand and a honey colored strand.  Both are very pretty.
