One of the most common uses of neem oil for dogs is as a natural pesticide and insect repellent.  Neem effectively repels and kills, mites, lice, fleas and ticks and warn off unwanted insects. The oil is completely non-toxic and safe for our dogs too!

Flea & Tick shampoo is completely nontoxic, which is great, as many medical alternatives are packed with harsh chemicals that can unfortunately make a dog poorly. Neem oil is known for its strong scent and bitter taste, and this is for a reason; to stop dogs wanting to bite and lick irritated skin. However, if they do decide to lick or bite with diluted neem oil on their coat, don’t worry! You can relax knowing your dog will be safe, thanks to neem oils non-toxic trait.

Neem oil is not just for killing and repelling unwanted pests! Its anti-fungal properties allow this herb to quickly treat conditions such as, ringworm, atopic dermatitis, and other fungal infections. Combined with its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antiviral properties, it can also be applied to fight off infections and microbes that cause itching, whilst relieving itchiness caused by food allergies, dry spots and bites.

Additionally, when neem oil is applied regularly, it is absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin and gives dogs protection from further infections or infestations for longer periods of time. It has also been shown to support blood purification, support the liver, and improve your dog’s immune system whist promoting a healthy coat with the oil’s added omega 9 benefits.
