- Tick removal tool
- Natural Essentials
- Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) - organic unpasteurized, unfiltered for disinfecting skin after removing ticks, as a cleansing rinse or soak diluted with water
- Don’t use ACV on broken skin or lesions.
- Aloe vera gel or a calendula salve - excellent for soothing irritated and inflamed skin
- Colloidal Silver for treating infections of all types including ear infections , eye infections and diarrhea.
- Witch Hazel - a natural astringent and antiseptic for treating bug bites
- Raw unpasteurized honey to treat wounds (not for puppies under 1 year of age)
- Sun Screen - for your dog’s nose and for dogs with thin or sparse fur
- Don’t use conventional human--made-for sunscreen as it contains multiple toxins as do the majority of made-for pet sunscreens, including those sold in veterinarian offices.
- Coconut oil, sesame seed oil, jojoba oil or wheat germ oil are good natural sunscreens and moisturizers.
- You can make these natural oils even more effective by adding 5 to 20 drops of therapeutic-grade lavender (or another dog-safe, cat-safe essential oil) for every ounce of coconut, sesame or jojoba oil
- To heal a sun-burned nose just apply a little vitamin E
