A special tip from Carole

Holistic Dog Care

Take loving care of your dog with natural holistic pet care products.

Use Pet Essences Emergency after an accident, for stressful situations, trauma. Helps prevent shock and is calming. Can be put on skin if animal is unconscious. Give every few seconds then minutes until crisis is past. Caretaker can also take.

About Flower Essences

Pets are very responsive to the energetic healing of Flower Essences. The energetic bouquets from Pet Essences are both dynamic and gentle in their transformational abilities. By using the appropriate Flower Essences to balance the emotional attitudes of your dog (or cat), subtle changes occur that bring renewed energy forward and short circuit the path to illness. Appropriate times to use Flower Essences include:

  • Visits to the vet
  • Fear of loud noises (fireworks, thunderstorms etc.)
  • Excessive barking or hissing
  • Shock, trauma or mistreatment
  • Adapting to loss of companion
  • Separation anxiety
  • Adapting to new surroundings (home, kennel, stable etc.)
  • Obsessive cleanliness
  • Constant licking or nibbling of self

Don't worry about choosing an inappropriate essence: they will not harm animals, or people, as they are self-correcting - meaning that there are no unwanted side effects. Products available to purchase include:

Pets have emotions, attitudes and personalities just like humans. To care for an animal, it is helpful to observe the animal and learn how to distinguish between normal regular behaviour and behaviour that is unusual and out of balance.

Pets often reflect the emotions of the people close to them and the environment in which they live. Emotions such as fear or anxiety or worry or depression can lead to disease because they deplete the physical body of its natural vitality, thereby compromising the immune system's ability to function properly.


Do you think your dog may have suffered an allergic reaction to the chemical flea and tick control medications you are using?

Risks connected to the use of chemical flea and tick prevention drugs and medication

The newest generation of pesticides are being marketed as far less harmful than the old ones, but they are being deeply misrepresented as harmless.

Click here to read what the analysis and summary of the findings of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has to say about "Are spot-on flea and tick killers" safe and the dangers and risks of using chemical medications on your pet - this information has been known to the drug industry and many vets since as far back as 2002; including a break down of the pesticides and ingredients used by some of the larger drug companies including Frontline and Advantage.

Unsuspecting pet owners acting in good faith

Unsuspecting pet owners acting in good faith who have dogs with fleas, flea allergies and or flea and tick related skin problems are regularly spending hundreds of dollars with their vets on a variety of drugs.

  • Chemical flea protection products.
  • Steroids for treating flea allergies.
  • Antibiotics for treating bacterial infections and hot spots.
  • Tranquilizers to sooth the itchiness and emotional trauma and stress caused by infestations.

The sad but all too truthful fact, is that these toxic medications take a very serious toll on pets' internal organs, particularly their livers and immune systems; and their problems become a never-ending vicious circle of medication and illness.

In fact its more than likely, that your vet has prescribed and sold you some of these lethal concoctions for your precious pet. You may be one of the increasing number of pet owners who have seen their pet have one or more of the following reactions within a short time of being given flea medication.

You may even be one of the unfortunate owners of one of the ever increasing number of dogs which have actually died from chemical flea and tick protection medications.

Treating dogs with fleas, ticks and mosquitoes the natural way

So what is the best and safest way to go?

I have found from experience the best way is to protect your pet using a product that is relatively new but it seems to have amazing results. Its called Only Natural flea and tick tag.

0Bug!Zone Flea & Tick Tag

What makes this flea tag so darn good? as well as being a 100% safe alternative at a fraction of the cost of chemical spot-ons and flea pills, here are just a few other vital points:

  • it repels fleas, ticks, and mosquitos and all external parasites
  • it lasts up to one year
  • it is non-toxic and chemical free
  • it doesn't smell and is water resistant
  • it is 100% safe with no side-effects
  • it is effective with dogs and cats of any age (including newborns), any weight and also sick, convalescing and pregnant pets
  • there is no need to wash your hands after touching it or to stop your kids from playing with their pet.

This is what you need to do

It is of paramount importance that your pet is completely clean and free of fleas/ticks and any of their off-spring in their life cycles before placing a Flea and tick tag on its collar.

A good way to start is to

Only Natural Pet EasyDefense Herbal Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Bath your pet with an herbal shampoo follwed by a herbal conditioner. A quick bath wont do the trick, the secret is to lather up your pet and leave the shampoo on for a minimum of five minutes preferably longer. This way all fleas and any invisible eggs and larvae which form part of the flea cycle will crack open and die. This is a good time to give your pet a gentle massage and to increase your bonding with him.
  • Follow up with an herbal spot-on treatment, which will give your pet protection during the build-up time needed for the technology to fully kick in.

It is important to bear in mind a quick bath and the use of collars or combs are not sufficient to kill off existing parasites.

The last thing you want to do is to leave living parasites or any of their off-spring on you pet when you first attach a flea and tick tag to its collar. Doing this will only create a batch of parasitic larvae which will have acclimatised to the magnetic field building up around your pet and you will end up fleas on your dog which will be immune to the technology of the tags.
