Our products are non-toxic, they don't contain any synthetic chemicals, and are made of pure organic, therapeutic, and medicinal plants and minerals. They are designed specifically for humans, but many of them are safe for your dog and probably one of the best things you have ever used on them. Alywillow products listed here are for external use on your dog. Do not let your dog lick or eat any product as they are not intended for consumption. For more information, read the questions and answers below.
We have so many options!
Daily Care - wash and moisturize with any Elemental or Therapeutic formula. All Alywillow cleansers can be used to wash your dog, but Unscented, 3Kings, and the baby cleansers are the best if you bathe often. Don't let your dog lick or eat our cleansers. They smell great, but are not intended for consumption.
Anti-fungal Bath: Is your dog struggling itchy skin or other fungal related skin issues? If so, use the Wildwood cleansers and moisturizers. Wash with either the bar or liquid cleanser. After washing, rub Level 3 or Level 4 Wildwood moisturizers directly onto and around the itchy, flaky, or dry skin issue. Let it set for at least 1-2 minutes, and then rinse with warm water.
Ticks: GoAway can be applied directly to a tick to help it release and to disinfect the bite. Always apply a moisturizer to the area after using GoAway. The Warrior moisturizers are best in these cases. Do not use GoAway on a wet or moist animal as it can cause a chemical burn. (No licking).
Strange Bumps: GoAway can also be applied to strange bumps and infections (not open wounds). Always apply a moisturizer to the area after using GoAway. The Warrior moisturizers are best in these cases. Do not use GoAway on a wet or moist animal as it can cause a chemical burn. (No licking).
Repel Flies and Gnats: Spray Wildwood Spritzer into their fur. Native Shield, Fortify, and GoAway can be applied to a bandana or t-shirt and wrapped around them. These are not strong enough to repel fleas or ticks on dogs.
Pain and Swelling: Riverflow Spritzer can be used on painful joints and muscles or to reduce swelling and inflammation. Shake the Spritzer and spray directly onto their skin. Use around the area of pain and swelling, but not inside an open wound.
Reduce Odors: Spray Raindrop Deodorant daily on dog fur and around bedding to reduce odors.
Sickness: Is your sweet one feeling bad? You might need to check with the vet. If you want to try something natural first, try Paradigm Massage. Massage onto a wet dog that is not feeling well, let it set for up to 3 minutes, then rinse off. Use 1 squirt for every 10 pounds. A 50lb dog would get 5 squirts.
