Neem oil, the organic, pure stuff, should never be underestimated when repelling fleas, ticks, mites, lice, and flies. It will also sort out mange but ensure there isn’t an underlying bacterial infection with mange, especially if it’s been there a while.
Why Would I Use Neem for Parasites?
- If your dog reacts to conventional flea treatments
- If you don’t like using them and want an alternative that works
- If your dog or cat (or horse) doesn’t like the Billy No Mates or Filly No Mates
- If your pet doesn’t generally get fleas, but you’d like to have something natural on hand which will fix a parasite problem

Should I Use Oil or Shampoo?
For parasite control, use Ekoneem, 100% neem oil (see diagram right.) It’s not mixed with anything else and is good to have a pot about the place (in the fridge) for first aid. Use it on dogs, horses, humans, and cats (because it’s vegetable oil, not an essential oil, it’s safe for cats) for:
- Insect bites
- Flea allergic dermatitis
- Wet eczema
- Sore, cracked skin, and paws
- Dry, flaky skin
- Fungal skin problems
