About Us

We know how stressful it can be having an itchy dog or pet in your home. After trying all sorts of methods to reduce my beloved allergy dog Coco’s scratching, I began my search for a natural product. At the time I was one half of a team that made natural skincare for people and I was a dog handler at the SPCA, so it was an easy jump to apply my knowledge to help my furry friends. We tested and tested until we found an effective itch relief for small pets, cats and dogs, made from all-natural ingredients. Eezapet was born.

In February 2014, we launched at the re–opening of the SPCA headquarters in Wellington. Our product was warmly welcomed, as many people saw how effective it was. Word of our product spread and demand quickly grew. 

Eezapet is now available in over 100 stockists around Aotearoa New Zealand. Animal lovers all over the country are successfully helping relieve their pets’ itches and scratches. In June 2015 we launched our online store to service our growing international customer base. 

We are proudly on a mission for a scratch-free world and would love for you to join us.

Most Asked Questions

Well asides from humans (as we tested on humans first!) - Eezapet has been used on many animals - dogs, cats, horses, donkeys, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice to name a few. They can all suffer from the itch - and need help for their skin to repair. We've even helped birds like chickens and finches too.

As all dogs are different, some like to lick, some don't - we suggest applying our Eezapet balm before a walk, play time, training time, cuddle time. That way Eezapet has time to activate while your dog is preoccupied.

We recommend at least twice a day. It depends on how severe the rash is, and how frequently your dog is scratching. Eezapet soothes the itch, so as soon as they start scratching again apply Eezapet to the area - re-apply as often as needed.
