The battle against fleas is one that many pet owners face, particularly during warmer months. The Vet's Best Flea and Tick Home Spray is one such product aimed at helping alleviate this pesky problem. With its emphasis on natural ingredients and its broad application possibilities, it has gained quite a bit of attention. As part of the Repellent Guide team, I've had the privilege of testing and reviewing this product in real-world scenarios.

Product Description

Vet's Best Flea and Tick Home Spray boasts a blend of Certified Natural Peppermint Oil and Eugenol derived from Clove plants, which it claims are potent against fleas and ticks. The product's approach is holistic, focusing not just on pets but also on their surroundings. It's designed for application on pet bedding, upholstery, carpet, and even outdoor surfaces. The manufacturer highlights its non-staining quality, but does advise a spot-test. The spray is suitable for dogs 12 weeks and older, and offers detailed guidelines for application on both pets and surfaces.

Personal Experience

I decided to test this product in two environments - my own home, which has been previously treated for fleas, and a friend's home which was in the throes of a minor flea infestation.

1. Smell: The first thing I noticed was the strong peppermint aroma mixed with a hint of clove. It's refreshing, but if you're sensitive to scents, it might come off as a tad overpowering.

2. Application: The dual spraying options - a jet stream and a mist - were handy. The mist was particularly useful for covering larger areas like rugs and upholstery, while the jet stream came in handy for focused applications on my dog.

3. Immediate Results: On applying the spray directly onto fleas, they were incapacitated almost instantly. However, I echo the sentiments of another user - while the product is wet, it's lethal to fleas, but its efficacy seems to wane as it dries or the scent dissipates.

4. Longevity: Over a week, I noticed a significant reduction in flea activity in my friend's home. However, I had to reapply the product multiple times, particularly in high-traffic areas.

Feedback from the Repellent Guide Team

Several team members, including myself, noticed a few points of contention:

1. Quantity: A single bottle doesn't last long, especially if you're dealing with a larger infestation. This could become costly over time.

2. Spray Mechanism: The last bit of liquid in the bottle doesn't spray out efficiently. It's a waste and can get messy.

3. Potency: While the product is potent upon immediate application, its longevity is questionable. Regular reapplications are necessary for continued efficacy.

4. Natural Ingredients: Many on our team, myself included, appreciated the emphasis on natural, plant-based ingredients. Not only does this reduce potential harm to pets, but it's also more environmentally friendly.


Vet's Best Flea and Tick Home Spray is a solid choice for those seeking a more natural approach to flea control. It's effective on contact, easy to apply, and smells pleasant. However, be prepared for multiple applications and consider purchasing in bulk if you're dealing with a larger problem.

It's worth noting that while this spray is a powerful tool in the battle against fleas, it's best used in conjunction with other measures like regular vacuuming, washing of pet bedding, and consistent pet treatments.
