keep bugs off dogs

Is your dog getting bugged by creepy crawling insects? Chances are if you’re getting bit, so is your pooch. Keep him bug-free and smelling great with Oliver Bentley’s new Botanical Bath & Bug Bar ($8.25/4.25 ounces).

The Ollie B. Bath & Bug Bar is chock full of essential oils which naturally soothes the skin and coat as well as repels bugs. The key natural oils are: lavender to soothe the skin, lemongrass to enhance shine, citronella to repel bugs, eucalyptus to refresh and clean, and Cedarwood to help repels fleas. Bonus: It’s free of artificial fragrances which can cause allergies and dry out your dog’s skin and parabens which is a food preservative found in cosmetics and is linked to cancer.

During the buggy months as summer slips away, it’s important to keep ticks and mosquitoes away from your dog. These tiny pests can carry Lime Disease and Heartworm so in addition to bug repellents, also treat your pup with an annual Lime Disease vaccine and monthly heartworm prevention.

Resist the urge to buy conventional bug sprays and collars which are loaded with toxic chemicals like imidacloprid, fipronil, permethrin, methoprene, and pyriproxyfen – all of which have caused serious health problems in animals. These pesticides can cause dangerous illnesses like vomitting, diarrhea, trembling, seizures, and respiratory problems as well as long-term effects and shortened life spans.

When in doubt, skip the conventional route and always look for the holistic, natural remedies to keep your pup safe and healthy.
