Natural Tick Repellent?

This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.

I know this has been asked before, but does anyone know of any natural tick repellents that really work? Mom hates the thought of putting Front Line on me, but she'd never forgive herself if I got Lyme disease.

We heard that Tea Tree Oil is good. Has anyone ever used that?

Hey Sammy......Mama has two old friends that used to "run
bloodhounds".....one with a police dept. and one with the prison
system......BOTH of them swore by Avon Skin So Soft. They put
a dab on the back of the neck...behind the ears ... and a dab here
and there...... and head off into the woods to "track".....way to go

My Mommy bought me garlic pills once. They were flavored. I ate one but then I realized they weren't snacks, but a natural tick repellent. I stopped eating them. She gave them away.

I actually have Lyme disease but I haven't seen the effects of it.

You may want to try garlic pills.

I just got the new issue of Animal Wellness magazine in the mail, and it has a pretty decent article on natural approaches to dealing with ticks. Incidentally, it has an article on natural flea prevention, too, which you can read on the website.

Sorry to sort of change the subject. I just never heard of Animal Wellness magazine. Is it like Whole Dog Journal? Do you like this magazine? I think I might subscribe. It sounds interesting. Thank you for letting me change the subject for one second.

Fenway -- Animal Wellness is a pretty good publication. It's a little more commercial than WDJ, what with it's pages of ads and product promos, but there's some great articles and I have to admit that I enjoy looking at the ads for different natural pet products out there. I'd definitely consider a subscription if I were you!
