Copper on the path in our backyard.
Welcome to my backyard! I love our backyard – and so do our dogs. We live on a heavily wooded hillside where 80% of the yard is left “wild.”
While I love the low maintenance aspect of our wooded lot, the dogs love that it attracts all types of wildlife.
Unfortunately, that wildlife includes all manner of creepy and crawly insects.
While fleas aren’t a huge concern in my part of Colorado, we definitely have ticks. And ticks love heavily wooded areas. Areas just like my backyard.
I fear ticks. While most people know about Lyme disease, did you know ticks can also carry Colorado tick fever?
Finding an all natural solution to flea and tick control is important to my pets and my family.
Any time I sit down in the house, I end up with Nina on my lap.
Having the constant contact between Nina and myself means I’m very aware that any little creepy crawlies that attach themselves to her feathery fur can easily get transferred to me.
I recently was able to try Only Natural Pets Flea and Tick Control products. With their all natural dog care line, I learned you can effectively fight fleas and ticks without pesticides.
The products I instantly fell in love with use essential oils. Their Easy Defense Herbal Oil Blend contains neem, citronella, lavender, cedar, and other essential oils. It’s easy to apply using a dropper then rubbing it in.
I love the smell of this herbal oil blend. Copper thinks it smells great too!
Having animals that smell nice is a plus in my book.
While the dropper is great on Copper’s short coat, I love the Easy Defense Herbal Spray for Nina’s long hair.
The smell is definitely stronger. However, since Nina can start to stink in between groomings, it has the added benefit of being like a doggie perfume on her. 🙂
I’d definitely recommend spraying it on outside because it is potent.
I could still smell the herbal spray on her 7 days after applying it. It is that potent.
The other product that is a huge hit in our house is the Only Natural Pets Barrier Bites. These bites contain both brewer’s yeast and garlic. The dogs love them but they have no idea that ingesting them makes them less appetizing to biting insects.
It’s an easy way to get your dogs natural protection. I would definitely recommend adding these treats to your natural dog care routine. If you are going to give your dogs treats anyway, they may as well have some added benefits, am I right?
If you are like me, and you look for non-toxic but effective all natural dog care solutions, I’d love for you to give any of the Only Natural Pet Products a try. They have an entire line of products designed to prevent, control and repel fleas and ticks.
