There is a natural formula recommended by holistic veterinarian, Dr. Karen Becker, called Natural Flea & Tick Defense. Here’s what it contains:
Natural Flea & Tick Defense
Lemongrass oil – When formulated into a spray for pets, promotes a shiny, healthy coat , and helps repel fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
Cinnamon oil – A versatile essential oil widely used in the household. It is an effective eco-friendly ingredient that helps deter mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and other pests from attacking your dog or cat.
Sesame oil – A rich, almost odorless oil derived from tiny sesame seeds. When combined with other essential oils it helps protect against pests and promotes the health of your pet’s skin and coat.
Castor oil – Castor oil has been used for years by veterinarians. When combined with other oils, helps to repel a variety of pests.
Purified water – Only the purest water is used to help blend and properly balance the unique formula of essential oils.
Results from a 2006 study showed how the Natural Flea & Tick Defense formulation was well tolerated by cats. “The Natural Flea & Tick Defense spray formula (US $17.95) of natural oils from the Amazon rainforest more than satisfies my selection criteria for a safe and natural pest deterrent for your pet,” says Dr. Becker.
