Are systemic flea treatments harmful to dogs?
Are oral and topical flea treatments, which interrupt the life cycle of fleas, harmful to your dog in any way?
Theoretically yes, since they are absorbed into the blood stream. They are pesticides. As we know, pesticides cause cancer in humans, and a dog's physiology is almost identical to ours with the obvious exceptions. If you want to try a natural flea treatment, peppermint is EXCELLENT at keeping the fleas at bay, and the ones that are already there run for cover immediately. It doesn't kill them though.

Can we travel back in time without affecting the future?Quantum superposition holds that a physical system exists partly in all particular, theoretically possible states, which makes me think that we can theoretically go back in time and it would have no impact on the future because it is already a...
