Ticks on my pets

(Glendale, Az.)

I recently had the change to use TripleSure on my pet, which my girlfriend purchased. Excellent product and plan on ordering several of the Natural Wonder Pet items. I have the pleasure to chat with Gary on sprays for outside in reference to being natural with Diatramatious Earth. The Company Truly Nolen is sending me a msds sheet of ingredients. So far they told me that it is powder form, and not Industrial grade.

I also wanted to let everyone know that after my research for weeks, that these are the best I have found. On one web site I found an article on Organic Apple Cidar Vinegar which I wanted to share with everyone. This also helps with ticks among other natural cures in animals and humans.
Web Earth Clinic.com

I will be ordering these products together with Organic apple cider vinegar.

Thank you so much for you information on this web page Gary.


Every home with dogs should have apple cider vinegar. It's a remedy with multiple uses for dogs: alleviating allergies, arthritis, establishing correct pH balance. You can also give apple cider vinegar to cats and horses.

"...If your dog has itchy skin, the beginnings of a hot spot, incessantly washes its feet, has smelly ears, or is picky about his food, the application of ACV may change things around. For poor appetite, use it in the food - 1 tablespoon, two times a day for a 50 lb. dog. For itchy skin or beginning hot spots, put ACV into a spray bottle, part the hair and spray on. Any skin eruption will dry up in 24 hours and will save you having to shave the dog. If the skin is already broken, dilute ACV with an equal amount of water and spray on.

Taken internally, ACV is credited with maintaining the acid/alkaline balance of the digestive tract. To check your dog's pH balance, pick up some pH strips at the drug store, and first thing in the morning test the dog's urine. If it reads anywhere from 6.2 - 6.5, your dog's system is exactly where it should be. If it is 7.5 or higher, the diet you are feeding is too alkaline, and ACV will re-establish the correct balance.

If you have a dog that has clear, watery discharge from the eyes, a runny nose, or coughs with a liquid sound, use ACV in his or her food. One teaspoon twice a day for a 50 lb. dog will do the job.

After your weekly grooming sessions, use a few drops in his or her ears after cleaning them to avoid ear infections. Other uses for ACV are the prevention of muscle weakness, cramps, feeling the cold, calluses on elbows and hock joints, constipation, bruising too easily, pimples on skin surfaces, twitching of facial muscles, sore joints, arthritis and pus in the urine. There are also reports that it is useful in the prevention of bladder and kidney stones.

Fleas, flies, ticks and bacteria, external parasites, ring worm, fungus, staphylococcus, streptococcus, pneumococcus, mange, etc., are unlikely to inhabit a dog whose system is acidic inside and out. Should you ever experience any of these with your dog, bathe with a nice gentle herbal shampoo -- one that you would use on your own hair -- rinse thoroughly, and then sponge on ACV diluted with equal amounts of warm water. Allow your dog to drip dry. It is not necessary to use harsh chemicals for minor flea infestations. All fleas drown in soapy water and the ACV rinse makes the skin too acidic for a re-infestation. If you are worried about picking up fleas when you take your dog away from home, keep some ACV in a spray bottle, and spray your dog before you leave home, and when you get back. Take some with you and keep it in the car, just in case you need it any time. Obviously for major infestations, more drastic measures are necessary. ACV normalizes the pH levels of the skin, makes your dog unpalatable to even the nastiest of bacteria and you have a dog that smells like a salad, a small price to pay! "

I like to take the time once again to thank you for your reply and getting back to me on my phone calltoday. When you asked me, about TripleSure and if I used it, I like to correct my self as I think I said I didn't use it, but ment I didn't purchase yet.

My Girlfriend when I spoke to here about the tick problem and your products said she got several items sent to here as a gift from a family member. This was a surprise to me.

My girlfriend stopped over with a bottle that had enough for about a few day for my 7 Shih Tzu's, the smell is wonderful. When I went outside with them and as I do everyday, I check their long coats when brushing. No ticks so far on the one side of my yard were I let them out. I know it will work on the side of my home were my neighbor had ticks, that is how confident I'am.

When I get a chance I will be posting more information on Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and the 2 web page's which I narrowed down from several web sites. I focussed on what I felt I could find organic and answered all my questions concerning my pets and myself.

My # 1 Web Page Is Natural Wonder Pets. I feel every products here is what you need, natural and organic.

I like to get the vitamins also. Only thing is being I have 7 dogs that is about 210 capsules a month. Will you maybe in the future make a jar that has a bigger amount in it? I figure I have to get about 3 jar a month and 1 week for all 7 of them.

I give my 1 older dogs Glucosamine Chondroitin by Country Life. I empty the Vegerterian Capsule in his food and he love's it. Also for the past 1 1/2 years Sammy who wll be 12 years old on Christmas Day has become more active with no pain in his legs. He runs and jumps with ease, the Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is a plus also.

Thank you again Gary, and have a wonderful day.


Thanks for sharing

Hello Theresa,

Thank you so much for your generous comments. If there is one thing I remember from our phone conversation, it's that you do your research - meaning, you make recommendations only with the utmost care and certainty.

Thanks also for sharing the information about apple cider vinegar and its many uses on our precious pets. I like the part about how ACV will make your dog smell like a salad. What comes to mind is a Waldorf.

Take care!
