Natural Flea & Tick Prevention
Let’s just jump right in, nobody wants their dogs to get fleas or ticks. Some of us even have dogs that have severe flea allergies…I know I do. Both Reckon and True literally fall apart if just one flea finds their way onto them.
Today I want to share what I do to keep the pests away naturally. Because let’s be honest, the last thing I want to do is put chemical pesticides in or on my dogs.
Pesticides have been known to cause problems with a plethora of things such as the nervous system, thyroid toxicity, thyroid cancer, liver toxicity, kidney damage, reduced fertility, and chemical burns.
Not to mention the physical issues of convulsions, loss of appetite, whining, barking, crying, motor skill impairment, loss of hair and itching.
All of these problems can be proven with a quick online search if you don’t believe me.
Does this scare you? It scares me!!
For that reason, I turn to natural alternatives.
I use a combo of sprays made with doTERRA Essential Oils, as well as DE, which is infused with doTERRA Essential Oils.
I will share, I do not recommend or promote using essential oils on a collar around your dogs neck. Let me share why…. dogs noses are 40x stronger than ours, when we have a constant source of smell coming from the collar, your dog cannot get away from that scent.
For this reason, I stick to other alternatives.
Some things to keep in mind, along the lines of the holistic thought processes, a healthy dog attracts less fleas, so looking at your dog’s whole health can be of a benefit and some say diet can play a part.
There are some additional options out there to help support your dog.
Right now, I am seriously considering the purchase of a Raw Amber Collar (specifically I am looking at the Amber Crown Co), comment below if you have one of these and have an opinion on how they work, I would love your feedback.
I have also heard of using electromagnetic tags, which honestly, I have no experience with, but since it is natural, looked into them. Most seem bulky and the reviews are 50/50. So probably not something that I will purchase.
Even if I find a new way to support my dogs, I will still stick with my oils, as they have served me well over the years. Make sure to click the link below so that you can get your hands on my favorite EO Flea & Tick Recipe Sheet.
