Neem is a natural birth control as well as having many fantastic medical properties

To Make a Neem Shampoo

Use an oatmeal dog shampoo mix neem oil into your normal dog shampoo at a rate of 1 to 5 ml for every 100 ml of shampoo. Just mix neem oil into your normal dog shampoo at a rate of 1 to 5 ml for every 100 ml of shampoo.

 

To Make a Spray

A 0.5% – 1% solution is strong enough as a repellent spray to protect dogs from mosquitoes, fleas etc. However, if your dog already has a problem with fleas or ticks you can use a stronger solution. (I found this too much for two chis, so unless you have a lot of chihuahua, I would make half. It doesn’t keep for more than a few hours)

For 0.5 liters of a 0.5% solution of neem oil dog spray you need:

  • 5 ml neem oil (1 tsp)
  • 1 ml mild soap or detergent
  • 0.5 liter warm water

For 0.5 liters of a 1% solution of neem oil dog spray you need:

  • 5 ml neem oil
  • 2 ml mild soap or detergent
  • 0.5 liter warm water

Method:

  • Use warm (not hot!) water, the oil will dissolve much better.
  • Mix the warm water with the soap first!
  • Then slowly add the oil while stirring vigorously.
  • Fill the mix into your sprayer.
  • Use immediately it only keeps for a day.

Please note Neem Oil is a natural birth control, do not use on pregnant bitches or dogs that you intend to breed from. (feel free to wash your teenagers in it!)
