Ticking timebomb…

With dog owners being warned about the abundance of ticks this summer, CSJ is highlighting its Skinny range of cream, shampoo and spray.

“Ticks aren't just pests that feast on your dog and cause him to itch; they can also be carriers of some serious diseases,” a spokesman said. “UK ticks can carry a devastating condition called Lyme disease caused by serious bacteria, which affects both muscle and nerve cells.

“Skinny Cream is an effective, natural cream that is extremely kind to skin – for both dogs and owners. Specially formulated against fleas, ticks, mites (including mange), lice and flies  as well as pesky midges.”

Skinny Cream contains no preservatives, sulphates or artificial colours while smelling of coconuts and is now available in the new 100ml size.

The product is for dogs and horses, but not suitable for use on cats because of the essential oils used. It can also be used on pet bedding and sleeping areas.

“Insects can cause irritation and spoil pets’ and owners’ enjoyment of the outdoors but this year experts have particularly warned people to be aware of ticks and the diseases they can carry. We have seen an uplift in sales of our Skinny products and feedback has been terrific…we are happy to know that we are ‘doing our bit’ to foil the critters.”
