Natural Dog Care Tips {April}

Posted Apr 28 2010 9:13am

I love helping dog owners find alternative methods of care for their pets.  My company, Spot Organics gives me a great platform to educate and share these methods with you.  This is one of the reasons I love to post at least one helpful natural dog care tip on Twitter each day.

I realize that a lot of our customers don’t follow us on Twitter or Facebook so I thought we would do a monthly round-up of our best Twitter tips just for you!

  • Use your nose to see if your dog has an ear infection. If an infection is brewing the ear may smell yeasty, moldy, or cheesy.
  • Think your dog might be depressed? Lack of appetite? Citrus oils can help ~ we love pink grapefruit and sweet orange!
  • Natural toothpaste for your dog: Mix baking soda, water and a drop of peppermint oil. Apply with gauze pad and scrub away plaque!
  • Got an allergic dog? Get them started on an essential fatty acid supplement to help reduce inflammation.
  • Did you know? Lavender oil isn’t just for relaxing. It’s a great skin healing oil that’s perfect for a sensitive or allergic dog.
  • Dog Tick Remedy: Place a drop of pure Lavender oil on the spot where the tick was attached to your dog to help prevent disease and infection.
  • Cut your dog’s nails after a bath. They will be softer and much easier to cut!
  • Rosemary leaves are a flea and tick repellent. Simply dust rosemary powder onto the pet or areas where the pet sleeps.

We hope you enjoyed this months tips and hopefully you learned something useful!  I encourage you to leave your own useful tips on natural dog care in our comments section below.  Until next month…
