Natural Flea & Tick Defence

Even with the cooler winter temperatures, ticks are already awake at 7 ° C.  These blood-sucking parasites such as ticks and fleas seek their meals on our dogs and cats.  Every year spring starts the season of ticks and the ritual for tick prevention cannot be avoided. Ticks can transmit diseases that pose a danger to humans and animals.

The tick belongs to the bloodsucking ectoparasites. They lurk in bushes and grasses on the path or forest edge and waits for their opportunity. As soon as a suitable host passes, they drop and cling to his/her coat or clothes. They look for a suitable place to suck blood. During this process, diseases can be transmitted from the tick to the host. Lyme disease is one of the most well-known diseases, but more and more dogs are also suffering from anaplasmosis. Even for humans, the tick can be very dangerous, because we can also suffer from Lyme disease or tick-borne encephalitis. While previously warned against ticks in the southern regions of Germany, they have spread today in the north. The mild winters contribute to the rest, because ticks are hardy and can tolerate minus degrees for quite a while. It is a fact they can be found nationwide.

Canis Extra Defence Complex –  the basic protection against ticks and fleas 
Our defense against ticks and fleas contains tea tree oil from certified organic farming or wild growth, neem oil and jojoba oil and lavender oil and is rubbed daily for 3 weeks in the course of the so-called primary immunization (please note application recommendation). After completion of the basic immunization, Naturavetal Defense Complex is applied 2-3 times a week, providing long-lasting and natural protection not only against ticks but also against other pests.

Canis Extra Egyptian Organic Black Cumin Oil- the all-rounder of the highest natural quality
Black cumin oil has become increasingly popular in recent years. While initially it was more about a feed-related support of the immune system in defense weaknesses and abnormalities of the respiratory tract, it soon became clear that it had other advantages. Black cumin oil contains, in addition to unsaturated omega-3, -6 and -9 fatty acids, the saponin melanthin, the bitter substance nigellin and thymoquinone. It can have a mitigating/lessening effect on allergies as well as support a healthy intestinal flora through its positive properties. In 2014, 18-year-old Alexander Betz examined the connection between black cumin oil and the absence of ticks on his dog during a pupil experiment at “Jugend forscht” (see www.jugend-forscht-bayern.de/archiv/www.2014.jugend-forscht-bayern.de/index942e.html?id=1252). The experiment might suggest that ticks, after having mixed black seed oil into their feed, found the dogs to be less attractive.

Canis Extra Organic Coconut Oil– for perfect support inside and out
Organic coconut oil is a versatile all-rounder. Used externally, it can be massaged into the coat as a helpful tool against tick defence, as well as administered internally added to the feed. If you are planning a walk in the forest and meadow, you can easily rub a small amount of coconut oil in your fingers and massage the dog or cat into the coat. The lauric acid contained is perceived as unpleasant by the ticks, so they refrain from attaching itself to the host. Coconut oil also supports internally, a specified amount can be mixed to the feed. Dogs and cats like to eat the coconut oil and inwardly benefit from the many positive properties of the coconut oil. Canis Extra Organic Coconut Oil – perfect support for both inside and out.

Canis Extra Brewers Yeast – not just for a shiny coat
Brewer’s yeast promotes the health of the coat, claws and to all sorts of abnormalities in the skin. It contains many B vitamins and enzymes that have been proven especially beneficial during the coat change and also supports the healthy intestine. But that’s not all: Brewer’s yeast can also make a positive contribution to the defense of ticks, as they dislike the smell of B vitamins.

Some of our natural, gentle aids against pests can be used together as they compliment each other, e.g. in regions where the population density of the tick is very high. It makes sense to provide an external and an internal support. If that is not enough, depending on the residential area, you can combine everything. Because with pure natural products: diversity helps!
