TEA TREE OIL – MELALEUCA – USE WITH DOGS AND CATS

TEA TREE OIL_PETSVENTURA I advocate using tea tree oil for dog shampoo, particularly for larger breed dogs. When I use a tea tree oil shampoo it seems to keep the fleas and ticks away for several days after a bath.

With smaller dogs, miniature breeds like small poodles, Chihuahua's, and felines; you should avoid shampoos with concentrations of tea tree oil or other essential oils like menthol, in concentrations greater than 1%.

Cats and small dogs are highly at risk to central nervous system depressants (CNS depression) like some essential oils.

Never use directly tea tree oil, mint, or pennyroyal essential oils on any small animal.

Although some of these oils have proven themselves effective in repelling fleas and ticks, they can be dangerous or deadly to your small pets.
