Description:The pet beagle depicted here, was being treated with a flea and tick powder, which would kill any fleas or ticks on the pet, but not harm the dog.
Insecticides like flea and tick powders are used on domesticated pets in order to control flea populations in area also occupied by human beings, thereby, curbing the spread of vector-borne diseases transmitted by way of flea bites. Permethrin or Sevin will kill most fleas, but have a very low toxicity for mammals.
