for the care and protection of the dogs, but also for birds and all
kinds of pets. If you use mixed with shampoo dog wash, it eliminates

• Spray with neem oil
In many cases, washing the dog does not carry out more than
one or twice a month, so it is likely that the protective effect of
neem oil is reduced, or even disappeared. To solve this problem, a
spray can be made to use on a regular basis.
Its preparation is very simple (water + 5% liquid soap +
neem oil 5%), take a small boat from sprayer, it is filled with
water warm up to the 3/4 parts of it (to be able to shake well), 5%
of liquid soap, for example the dishwasher check (for 100 ml of liquid,
add 5 ml of soap), although it can also be potassium soap or liquid
soap prepared with soapnuts, since both are natural products, and mix
well with water (soap is necessary for neem oil to dissolve in
To this mixture of water and liquid soap, now add a 5% pure
neem oil and again mix well. The sprayer is ready to spray your pet
2-3 times per week. It is advisable to also spray the place where
sleeps the dog, for added protection.
This spray will be very useful, also, to apply it to birds,
given the ease with which these are affected by all kinds of insects
and pests. You can spray on the chicken, to protect the hens, or
about the same birds, where they are already affected, as well as in
the cage of parakeets or parrots, Canaries, finches, etc.
• Internal protection of pet
In the case of dogs, they sometimes eat grass. Specialists
say that this behaviour is that it feels good stomach and eating
forage makes them regurgitate and be better. However, many
veterinarians recommend trying to avoid this behavior, at least in
the public gardens, since these grasses tend to be sprayed with
herbicides or other chemicals, so the dog could poison and suffer
serious health disorders.
To prevent these problems
are used, which are not only good to strengthen health and human
digestion, but also that of our pets are used. We take the leaves in
tea form or in capsules (both have the same ingredient: powder of
leaves of the neem tree), while the dog can eat leaves powder mixed
directly with your meal.
The internal use of neem leaves helps against intestinal
parasites. In general, it is beneficial to the intestine, stimulates
the function of the liver and strengthens the immune system. This
will also help our dog to cope with this type of disorder.
Neem leaf powder is bitter. To facilitate that the dog eats
it, can be masked somewhat its flavor, mixing half teaspoon of
powder with your usual meal, a couple of times a day.
