Can you use teatree oil on pets to keep fleas off of them? will it be safe for my pets?
Tea Tree Oil is not recommended for keeping fleas off of pets, because cats, birds, and small dogs are unable to process tea tree oil effectively through their central nervous system.
100% Tea tree oil, when applied to pets can cause stupor, convulsions, and even death. Using tea tree oil sparingly and in the proper concentration for specific problems like ringworm. cuts, scratches, etc. should be taken with extreme caution. There are many more pet solutions available for small animals, that are far safer.
