...You name it, they’re out and about in springtime. As the weather gets warmer, you’ll no doubt start to notice more bugs and insects around the house and garden, and when it comes to walking areas like local fields and forests, some of these critters are ready and waiting to cling to your dog!
Coming across a tick or two on your dog or cat from time to time is completely normal around this time of year, and whilst they are generally harmless, it is of course very important that they’re removed thoroughly. We stock the fantastic Tick Twister, which makes removal of ticks super easy and keeps discomfort for your pet to a minimum.
Of course, fleas, ticks and worms are a potential issue all year round, but springtime brings heightened risk. Check out just a few of our great preventative products below:
Billy No Mates
Billy No Mates is a totally natural herbal supplement mix that is absolutely hated by ticks, fleas and mites. Simply sprinkle over your dog's food for protection from the inside out!
Whilst raw-fed dogs are far less likely to harbour worms, Four Seasons is a very gentle worming treatment that can be given from around 2 weeks of age. In the wild, animals would naturally select herbs that help to cleanse their digestive system; this specially formulated treatment works in the same way.
A firm favourite with the Nurturing by Nature team and customers alike, Neem oil is a fantastic addition to your pet care routine. We stock a number of pet shampoos including this wonder ingredient, which not only soothes sensitive skin and leaves coats soft and shiny but also offers antibacterial and anti-insect properties. Check out our Neem and Coconut pet shampoo.
Tip from Nettie:
"Before I take my dog for a walk, I like to give her coat a very light mist with Neem Shield pet spray to help deter pests such as ticks whilst we’re out exploring.”
