Bow & Wow pet care tip: Natural flea care for your canine friends

DO your canine home companions make up a huge part of your life. Taking good care of them and opting for  natural remedies for undesirable conditions like flea infestation should be high on your list of things to do.  

Certain medications like flea and tick preventatives are laden with strange chemicals that could have potentially harmful side effects.  Pet parents can get some help from  Bow & Wow, which  which carries a wide range of premium quality natural remedies for pooches and felines, apart from additives-free and preservative-free pet food.

Bow &Wow can help you handle the flea care for your four-legged friends all year round. Instead of constantly applying synthetic repellents, there are natural substitutes you can turn to that can help keep the little culprits at bay.  In so doing, you can prevent your beloved pets from experiencing discomforts like constant or extreme itchiness.  Here are some tips to prevent an overly itchy situation that can be very bothersome:
 
1.  Opt for all-natural repellants with essential oils

Essential oils like cinnamon, clove, cedar wood lemongrass and mint are great for pets and not so great for ticks and fleas. They are all-natural repellants.

Since essential oils are quite potent and may overwhelm your canine or feline friends’ sniffers, make sure the oils are diluted and opt for a ready-made flea and tick solution like Natural Chemistry Flea and Tick Squeeze On and Natural Chemistry Flea and Tick Spray for Dogs & Cats. An application of these all-natural flea and tick solutions will keep fleas & ticks at bay. Natural Chemistry Natural Flea Spray for Cats (with a separate one for dogs) kills fleas, mosquitos, and black flies on contact for up to seven days. It can even be used on beddings.

2.  Wash pets regularly
Washing your furry friends weekly to prevent fleas and ticks. Washing literally drowns them. Clean coats are not as welcoming to parasites as opposed to a dirty one. Try Aroma Paws Allergen Flea & Tick Repellent Shampoo to keep dogs flea- and tick-free.
For cats, you may encounter some resistance since they do not like baths, but you can wash something else…their beds. Whatever your cat nestles on throughout the day, wash it regularly to keep it clean and free from ticks and fleas that may have begun nestling in it, too. As for those cardboard boxes, old towels, and mats that furbabies tend to like much better than their expensive beds -- change them regularly, too.

3. Pay close attention to your pets outdoor
Pet fur basically attracts ticks and fleas and latches on to it. Every time your pet goes outside, you should check it to make sure nothing has “attached itself.” Observe also if your pet is continuously scratching.  Use a good natural flea and tick solution like Bobbi Panter Charlie Dog Shampoo & Outdoor Spray. 

Ease your pet’s condition the natural way. Check out the product finds at Bow & Wow, with stores located at the 6th Level of Shangri-la Plaza Mall; the lower ground level of Greenbelt 5; the 2nd level of Robinsons Magnolia; the ground level of Excelsior, Eastwood City; the 3rd level of Ayala Center Cebu; and at the ground floor of Ayala Malls Solenad 3, Nuvali, Sta.
