Tea Tree Oil

I put it in my hands and rub down the fur. Very simple and effective IMO. I haven't had any ticks on the dogs-except one-in two years of doing this.

Ok great thanks! Mosquitos are everywhere in Texas. What would be good for dry skin? Any ideas?

You could use the spray also. I mix it up in a bottle with a bit of olive oil and water to be able to mist it. You could also try adding eucalyptus oil as well.

Akeyla - fish oil works good for dry skin and coat - feed as supplement or buy treats with fish in them.

I use this a lot during the winter months. Makes a noticeable difference in their coat.

Okay great! I'll try the fish oil. She is acting like she has fleas, but I know she doesn't so I'm guessing it's dry skin.

What are you feeding her? Could be allergies to the food….

I was just going to suggest this. It could be allergies to food or anything else.

Fish oil will still help even if it's allergy related (along with changing the food if it is a food allergy). I give Kananga Benadryl every now and then when he's frustrated. Calms him down and he doesn't seem to be as affected anymore. But his allergies are beyond food related. I'm already using a 100% grain free food.

That's good to know about. Noel just ripped up my new cushions on my patio funiture. I'll have to try this.

Where do you get tea tree oil. I went to the pet store today and couldn't find it.

Try a CVS or Walgreens. They have it. But keep in mind it doesn't come cheap. I think I picked up an oz for around $10.

Another place is a health food store or the health food section of a supermarket.

It is typically not in a pet store as it is a human item…... it is usually in the health food/medicine section of your local grocery store...

I found a tea tree spray (aka melaluca) at the local, large feed store. In the horse sections with all the other good stuff.
