Get Off MY Dog You Nasty Tick

Ticks are the bane of my existence, right after CNN, and this time of the year they are heinous here in the big woods of MInnesota. My Great Pyrenees, Zoe, is a true tick magnet and the pour-on stuff I have tried has not done a thing. Plus, it scares me to pour chemicals right onto her…if she were to have a reaction, there would be nothing I could do!

So, I Googled and searched and came up with a couple of more natural tick be-gone alternatives…

2 tablespoons vegetable or nut oil (almond oil contains sulfur, a repellent
in its own right)
10 to 25 drops Rose Geranium essential oil

Combine the ingredients in a glass jar; shake to blend. Drop onto your dog’s collar, of course this works best on a fabric collar or use a handkerchief if your dog is a nudist.
Make: 2 tablespoons with a shelf life of about six months.

I also found info on these essential oils….cedarwood, lemongrass, peppermint, rosemary or thyme have all been shown to be effective, when used sparingly, to keep fleas and ticks away from pets and their favorite haunts.

Zoe and I will be letting you know which is the best of these essential oils!

Ah, the philosophy of the Solipsistic dog can be debated for hours, as Solipsistic followers are ever-so prone to do. It is one of those "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin" type mindsets.
