Prevent Fleas in Dogs


Pesky Fleas 

You are sitting in your home and you notice something oddly different with your dog; they are constantly scratching themselves or licking their fur when, at first, you thought it was nothing out of the usual. Warm weather invites many insects to come out and dance in the seemingly harmless grass. Because of this, we want to be wary and pay special attention to flea prevention during spring and summer Maybe your dog hasn't fallen victim to the "endless scratching syndrome" yet, but you want to take steps to prevent the little buggers from invading both your pet and your home.

How Can I Determine if My Dog Has Fleas Other Than Scratching?

The key indicator that your dog has fleas is if you find black specks anywhere they rest, such on the floor, bed or couch. It is flea dirt, and is fecal matter left behind from the fleas. If you do not find the black specks laying around somewhere, you can inspect your dog yourself by getting a flea comb and running it through their fur. Alternatively, you can get a paper towel and rub it across their fur to see if flea dirt appears. Fleas get take a while to get rid of so it is always best to use preventative measures to ensure your dog does not get it.

Natural Flea Prevention using Baltic Essentials Amber

Whether you have a new pup or have been best friends with your dog a while, taking care of the condition of their coat as well as the skin beneath it is important so it stays healthy. Being aware of fleas and the retributions that can come with infestation will help prevent one of the most common reasons for dermatitis (inflammation of the skin) that may result in them losing patches of fur.

A handful of pet owners use medicated foods or pills to give their dogs to prevent fleas, but it can be costly. Others prefer to find a holistic method that they can give their pets and know that it is completely safe unlike a lot of the spot-on treatments and sprays that are available. Using non-toxic, chemical free alternatives is especially important if your dog is pregnant or nursing, and you still want to prevent them from getting fleas.

Baltic Essentials Amber Necklaces are an excellent option to use as flea prevention for dogs. If your pet is allergic to certain chemicals or ingredients using traditional methods, you can give your dog this necklace knowing there are no complications that come with it. Not only is it completely natural, the attractive necklace will serve as a barrier and protect your dog(s) any time they go outside.

How Does Baltic Essentials Amber Work?

Amber is derived from tree resin that is released when your dog wears it to repel ticks from coming anywhere near them. In fact, Baltic Essentials Amber Necklaces make your dog an unappealing host to fleas because amber creates an environment that makes fleas feel uncomfortable coming near your pet. It is important to clean or change the necklace at least 1-2 times a year to continue seeing optimal results from it. Your dog will never have to worry about getting fleas when they wear this.

Prevent Lyme Disease in Dogs with Baltic Essentials Amber

Protecting Our Dogs from Ticks

We all love our pets and what to do what we can for them; we will find the perfect place for them to rest, the perfect foods for them to eat, the cleansing products to clean them with, and the perfect products to ensure they stay happy and healthy while preventing sickness or disease. Dogs enjoy to go outside when they can, and it is important that they are protected from whatever is out there such as ticks. Even a small bite can result in a wave of issues, one of which is known as Lyme disease. 

 Lyme disease is caused by infectious ticks that transfer a bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi. It can cause the dog to feel sick, be in pain, and make them susceptible to other complications if it were to get advanced.  Unfortunately, it is also possible for dogs to contract the disease as we are already aware it does to people. Nonetheless, there are ways to prevent Lyme disease in dogs when you use our Baltic Essentials Amber.

 

What is Amber?

Baltic Amber is made of fossilized resin (it is not a stone like many people originally believe) and has been around for over 40 million years. One of the best things about Amber is that it is completely natural. The resin from the amber necklace is activated when it on the neck, and its properties (succinic acid) are dispersed to the dog's coat due to friction and body heat. The greatest benefits that come with amber for your dog is that it can help with stress or pain, it promotes healing, it is an antimicrobial, it boosts immunity, and it has anti-inflammatory properties

 

Treatment Options for Tick Protection

Millions of dog owners buy tick protection products for their pets assuming that those on the market are completely safe after being tested. Pet stores and veterinarians can supply you with specialized oral or topical (for the skin) medication as well as powers and sprays to give your pet to prevent Lyme disease in dogs by keeping ticks away. A majority of these medications contain pesticides that kill the tick by paralyzing their nervous system, but it can potentially poison you or your dog in the process.  It is possible to prevent Lyme disease in dogs the safe and natural way by using Baltic Essentials Amber.

How is Baltic Essentials Amber effective for Dogs?

Think of Amber as a tool that can ward off ticks, thus it works to prevent Lyme disease in dogs. There are two ways Amber works on dogs:

  1. It Is An Electrostatic Repellant - Amber creates a highly static electrical charge when there is friction generated between it and the fur. No worries, it is not something your dog will ever notice or feel; however the tick sure will! The magnetic charge is so powerful to the tick that it gets shocked and falls off if it ever attempts to hop into the fur to make it a home. The more your dog wears this, the more effective you will be at repelling bugs.

 

  1. The Smell It Emits Acts As a Repellant - The resin from Amber has an aromatic smell to it due to substances known as terpines that are released whenever there is friction with the coat or body heat. When your dog wears Baltic Essentials Amber long enough, the aromatic substances will get absorbed into their fur. Ticks detest the terpines, and it will keep them at bay.

Since there will be no ticks that want to use your dog as a host, Baltic Essentials Amber  prevent Lyme disease from ever occurring. The necklaces are potent and long-lasting; they may be worn for up to a year at a time (changing it once per year  is recommended).
