Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Tips & Tidbits

Like humans… U.S. Pets are being over medicated and over exposed to chemicals and drugs


We all can and should use as many natural home remedies as we can so our babies aren’t filled with awful chemicals!!!

One of the major culprits are the flea and tick meds… especially the push to keep your pets on them all year round.

Here are some alternatives:

Natural Flea Fighter

One dropperful of each: eucalyptus, lavendar, pennyroyal, and citronella in a quart of water

Pour mixture into a spray bottle and use every time before you take your pets outside.

Always dilute pennyroyal, never use full strength cuz it is toxic, but this is better and in smaller doses than what is in the leading commercial remedies!!

You can buy the ingredients at a health food store or market with a homeopathic, herbal section


Just adding a ‘little’ garlic powder to your pets’ food can remedy the flea and tick problem; about a 1/4 of a teaspoon for a 15 pound dog, and about 1 tsp for up to a 90 lb dog;also increases their immune system.

Also, use natural orange extract and water based sprays for around the house or yard, instead of chemicals.


Some Other Natural Remedies…


For upset tummy’s, try the Herb Slippery Elm, found at any health food store and even in Walmart I believe.

For nerves, he said, a few drops of Spearmint, the juice of grated Ginger, or even a small sprinkle of Catnip in their water.

Give Thuja (can be found or ordered from a health food store) after having a Rabies vaccination, about a 30c dose for an adult dog.

Freelife’s Himalayan Goji Juice and GoChi are great additions to all your pets’ diet plus CanineCare for the doggies…

As you can see, they love it!!

“Never believe that animals suffer less than humans.
Pain is the same for them that it is for us.
Even worse, because they cannot help themselves.”
— Dr. Louis J. Camuti (1893-1981)
