Surviving Tick Season Naturally

As we embrace the warmer days, it’s crucial to remember that with them comes tick season—a time when these pesky parasites are most active. Ticks are not just a nuisance; they are arachnids, closely related to spiders, and can transmit diseases such as Lyme disease to both pets and humans.

While ticks can pose a risk, there are natural ways to minimise this threat to your dogs. Here are some effective strategies to help keep your pets tick-free:


1. Natural Repellents: Consider natural tick repellents like apple cider vinegar or a spray made from essential oils such as Chambers Natural Tick Repellent. These need to be applied before every walk to be effective.


2. Regular Grooming: Brushing your dog regularly not only keeps them clean but also allows you to check for any unusual bumps or ticks. Pay special attention to the warmer spots where ticks like to hide, such as the ears, neck, and between the toes.


3. Garlic in Diet: Adding a small amount of garlic to your dog’s diet can create a natural repellent effect from the inside out. Using tablets such as Dorwest Herbs' Garlic & Fenugreek tablets can help ensure you get dosages right.


For those times when, despite your best efforts, a tick latches onto your beloved pet, it’s important to know how to safely remove them. I’ve created a video that walks you through the safe removal of ticks from your dog using a tick twister tool, ensuring they are removed completely without harm to your furry friend. You can watch the video below.





By taking these natural precautions, you can enjoy the sunny days with your pup worry-free, keeping them safe from the dangers of ticks. Remember, always consult your veterinarian before trying new treatments on your pets to ensure their safety and health. Happy tick season!
