Neem Farms
Internal Supplementation & Oral Care: Neem taken internally by pets can boost their immune system and provide a concentrated source of antioxidants to help combat damage caused by aging as well as environmental toxins. We typically recommend neem bark because it tastes less bitter than the leaf and contains compounds that help protect the liver and stomach lining if a dog is taking other medications.

No US company has EPA approval to sell neem products that kill or repel fleas and ticks on pests. However, we can claim that using neem on dogs or cats will soothe itchy skin and help boost their immune systems.

NEEM FARMS NOTE:
 If your dog is a chewer, ask us to send some Neem Chew Sticks" target="_blank">doggie-sized neem chew sticks with your next order. There’s no charge for them because they’re too big for human use but some dogs really love them.

Neem Bark Powder

Oral care in pets
,  try mixing equal amounts of neem bark and peanut butter, then brushing or rubbing it on their teeth. Even our occasionally grumpy old Rottweiler likes the taste of peanut butter enough that he tolerates my fingers in his mouth -- and his teeth are noticeably brighter since I started doing it.

Internal supplementation: The typical rate of usage is 1/8 teaspoon of ground neem bark per 10 pounds twice a day for 30 days, then back down to one dose a day after that. That means a 12-pound Shit-zu would get an eighth of a teaspoon, a 40-pound Shar-Pei would get a half-teaspoon and a 120-pound Rottie would get 1.5 teaspoons. Some herbalists believe that patients should take a break every weekend or one week a month.


Supercritical Neem Extract




Supercritical CO2 Extract Of Neem ~

If you would rather use Supercritical Neem Extract than neem bark powder, a dog that weighs less than 50 pounds should have one capsule every other day. Dogs over 50 pounds can handle one capsule daily.

Anti-Itch Formula


The Anti-Itch Formula was originally made for people, but dog owners are reporting great results using it on several types of skin issues. It uses the same blend of essential oils found in our dry dog shampoo and Sprout’s Spray in an all-natural formula with 30% neem oil.

Even neem fans have been amazed at how quickly this new formula stops all kinds of itches, from bug bites to chronic dry skin. Made with neem, karanja, sesame, olive and jojoba oils - plus essential oils of lavender, cedarwood and lemongrass - it soaks in quickly and soothes even stubborn itches. 4 oz.

Great Stuff for Cats
& Great Stuff for Horses
Great Stuff for Dogs ~ One of the pack”, that's what we are in the eyes of our tail-wagging, belly rub-loving friends. Of course, the “pack” traditionally “hunted” for their food, and being carnivorous, they consumed mostly animals, but they also sought out and consumed grasses, plants, and herbs to aid their digestion, healing, and elimination process. This combination of meat and plants ensured naturally good health, digestion, and extended life spans.

Unfortunately, many canines are far from the fields where hunting and foraging are possible and most have gradually lost the proper instincts to forage with each domesticated generation. This has created significant nutritional deficiencies that threaten the health of our best friends.

Canine Wellness

A dog will eat grass or search for a particular herb when it feels the need to settle the stomach - to vomit or because more vegetables are needed in the diet. Be vigilent, however that your pet does not eat grass that has been sprayed with pesticides, otherwise it will get very ill.

Dogs eat grass because they crave greens as do other animals who eat vegetables counter to popular belief. They need the enzymes and a certain amount of chlorophyll which is the essence of plant life like blood is to our own bodies. Any green plant has a certain amount of Magnesium and is essential to both human and animal life, as they have dramatic healing abilities. Herbs can also be healing for dogs from dandelion to oregano and are used for different problems. Ginger for instance will settle your pet’s stomach if they have been sick or vomiting as it does with humans. Also, as we need vitamin D for optimal heath, have you ever watched dogs sunbathe for 10-15 minutes to get Vitamin D into their bloodstream? Many qualities for wellness are shared in both animal and human kingdoms. Do note, however Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants and Ten Most Common Pet Poisons.


I believe in a raw food species appropriate diet and f
ollowing the principles of nature, dogs are not just raw meat eaters, they eat grains like brown rice, quinoa and black or Jasmin rice (few grains is better) and vegetables. I feed Diamond raw or lightly cooked hamburger meat, cooked chicken, the occasional broken egg, greenbeans, sweet potatoes and carrots. As she has matured I have learned her preferences and you will learn them because dogs will beg for the vegetables they like and spit out those they don't. However, there are harmful foods. I give small amounts of a particular vegetable mixed in with organic brown rice or quinoa (high in protein), Diamond's favorite. Vegetables can be easily added to your dog’s diet. You can also steam, stew or lightly sautee veggies in olive oil like squash, sweet potatoes and especially pumpkin.
