Four Natural Remedies to Keep Your Dog Pest Free at Home

From oils to fruit, these items will keep your furry friend toxic free this summer

The convenience of chemical-based bug repellents are plentiful, but why not test out some natural products this summer for your four-legged friend. If the product you’re using now says it’s not safe for your children, then how can it be safe for Fido?

Lavender and Lemon Eucalyptus Oil. A company called Daisy Paw has taken all the hard work out of blending the right oils for your dog and sells not only the essential oilbut a cool collar that you can put the oil into.

Lemongrass or Citronella Oil. A recommendation from my favorite essential oil book, The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy, is to add one drop of either essential oil to his/her shampoo.

Rose Geranium Oil. According to Kelly at the blog PrimarilyInspired.com, this essential oil worked wonders on her dog when it came to avoiding ticks. Just a few drops on the shoulder blade and tail and no more ticks. Be sure to pick up Pelargonium capitatum x radens (not Pelargonium graveolens) and no carrier oil needed if used in small amounts.

Lemon. This recipe from Everydayroots.com is so simple that all you need is some lemons and water.

Of course check with your veterinarian before introducing any new product to your pet, especially if they are taking any medications.
