Natural Tick Spray

February 24, 2016

It's tick season again in the Okanagan... thanks to Rye for first spotting and reporting ticks to us in Bertram Creek Park.

Ticks (and mosquitos carry serious blood-born illnesses,) such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. That's why it's super important to protect your pets against ticks. Read the answer to our client's most common tick questions below.

Ticks! Protect your pet naturally from these yucky pests

Apothecary Tick and Mosquito Repellant FAQs

Do we really have Lyme disease in the Okanagan Valley?

Yes, we do have Lyme disease in BC, and in the Okanagan Valley, and it is now carried by several kinds of ticks. There are more and more cases each year.

What's in the spray?

The most active ingredient is rose geranium oil from South Africa. It's a very precious, but extremely powerful deterrent to ticks. We've combined high potency rose geranium essential oil with mosquito-repelling lemongrass and lavender oils to create effective, organic tick and skeeter repellent. The essential oils are in an organic, botanical coat spray base that adds ouster and shine to a dog's coat.

Where can I get it?

How much does it cost? Pandosy Village Veterinary Hospital's own nurses make the Apothecary Tick and Mosquito Repellent spray. It's available exclusively for $22 at our clinic. You do not need a prescription to purchase the spray. Visit us at 2720 Richter Street, Kelowna. There is a parkade in the middle of the red brick building, accessible off Raymer Avenue.

Do you ship the spray to other parts of BC?

Yes! We ship worldwide. Here is the online store link: https://pandosyvet.com/collections/natural-health-solutions
