And so it begins – dry hot weather and the onset of little buggies, just trying to get at your furbaby. Warm weather and the outdoors are a perfect combo for the little critters. Before you get bugged, or if you discover a problem, come into Kriser’s and ask a Pack Member which is the best natural product for your pet.
Here is a quick breakdown of the products we carry and recommend:
ALZOO Ez-On drops repel fleas and ticks, with a combination of natural essential oils and compounds, including gereniol, an alcohol which smells like roses, peppermint oil and almond oil. Available in a packet of three single-dose squeeze applicators. Available in two different varieties specifically formulated for your dog or cat.
Organic Raw Amber Crown Collars is a great way to prevent ticks and fleas from attacking your furry friends without resorting to toxic chemicals. Natural unpolished amber releases repellent aromatic terpenes and generates static electricity that prevents insects from clinging onto your pet’s fur. This pet necklace is safe for humans and animals, with no secondary effects on your pet, family or home.
Ark Naturals Neem ‘Protect’ Shampoo is a gentle, non-drying formula that cleans dirt and oil from your pet’s skin. The active ingredient, neem oil, naturally kills and repels fleas and ticks. If there is a current infestation, lather up your pet and let it sit for five minutes to kill off the bugs. Coconut oil in the product will also help moisturize and heal irritated skin. Ark Naturals Neem ‘Protect’ Spray features neem and citronella oils to also kill and repel fleas and ticks. Great for dogs, but use both products with caution on cats.
