If it moves, it dies.
AS pet owners, we are always on the lookout for great, natural sources to integrate into our pet’s daily routine. We learned that malunggay is a great super-food to add in our dog’s diet once in a while and how madre de cacao is great to treat mange. Now, there's a new favorite and must-have for pet care products: Neem!
The Neem Tree is a tropical plant found in India and Southeast Asian countries. In India, it is known as the village pharmacy, as the seeds, bark, and leaves contain compounds with antiseptic, antiviral, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, anti fungal, anti-oxidant & bug repelling properties.
For pets, Neem delivers many skin benefits. It naturally moisturizes skin and coat without making the fur sticky or oily, soothes irritated skin and hot spots, naturally repels and helps gets rid of ticks and fleas, helps clean up mange and wounds, and naturally deodorizes so no more “wet dog/cat” smell! In addition, compared to other plant or chemical based products, Neem is non-toxic when ingested by pets, which makes it safe as a house cleaner as well.
Want to try Neem? A current market bestseller is Fetch! Neem Natural Pet Care System as they are the first to use 100 percent Neem Extract as the products’ base while other Neem shampoos would add Neem oil or powder into its shampoo base or water. Because of this, Fetch! is able to maintain the potency of Neem’s healing, deodorizing, and bug repelling properties in a water soluble form. In fact, getting the extraction goes through an interesting (and meticulous) process where that lasts for 2-3 weeks, just to ensure that the efficacy of Neem is maintained. It’s because of this that Fetch’s extraction process won the silver medal at the 25th Salon International des Inventions in Geneva, Switzerland.
Currently, the Fetch! Neem Pet Care System includes Shampoo, Leave-on Rinse to clean up and deodorize your dog or cat while helps continue to repel bugs, and a House Cleaner and Deodorizer to be clean your floors or your pet’s beddings while shooing away creepy crawlies from your home. A complete solution that’s good for pets, humans, and their homes!
