Tell me about your packaging

Eezapet is housed in glass amber pottles. Fully recyclable.

Our courier bags are made using recycled materials.

Our pottles are all wrapped in recycled bubble wrap to ensure safe delivery.

As from October 2018 we are phasing in cardboard packaging wrap to replace our recycled bubble wrap.

We are also transitioning to Eco Bags for couriered parcels. These bags are made from corn starch and are fully compostable in the home compost or landfill

 

How many times should I apply Eezapet?
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.
At what stage should I apply Eezapet?
Apply Eezapet at first sign of any irritation. As soon as you see a rash developing, or your dog scratching – apply Eezapet. It soothes the itch which in turn stops the dog from licking and scratching which in turn stops the spread. The quicker you halt the rash the more manageable it is.
My dog has got into my Eezapet jar, what do I do?
We have had one crafty dog open the jar and lick out the contents (twice) with no adverse effects. Eezapet is made from beeswax, oil and herbs so may make their toileting a bit more slippery!  If you are at all concerned contact your vet.
How should I store my Eezapet?
The Eezapet balm is contained in dark glass to help against light deterioration . Do not store in the direct sunlight, store under 30 degrees celsius.
My dog's rash seems redder after using Eezapet, what should I do?
In the unlikely event of an allergic reaction please seek professional advice from a veterinary professional.
My dog just keeps getting rashes what can I do?
Elimination of the allergen is important.  Often keeping a daily diary can form a pattern not otherwise seen. Note all places they have been, foods eaten, treats given, any interactions, note any rashes or itching developing. Looking back can sometimes highlight a pattern. We have over 30 blogs explaining various allergens with tips and tricks to get you through. View the collection here: https://eezapet.com/blogs/news
How did Eezapet start?
Eezapet was launched into the market in 2014. Heather's first dog Coco, was allergic to a number of things – beef, wheat, eggs, grass seeds, wandering dew, onion weed, fleas and flea dust  to name a few. In her first year she had 4 steroid treatments that were not working. Trying to apply neotopic lotion did not work as she would hide when the tube came out. Wanting a natural treatment to alleviate her constant rashes led Heather develop Eezapet.  This was Coco's life saver, whenever the pot of Eezapet came out Coco would lie down, roll over and wait for Eezapet to be applied.

My dog is intent on licking off the Eezapet balm, how can I manage this?
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.
What are some of the allergens that can cause rashes?

Dogs are similar to humans in that they can be allergic to many different things. These can be Contact, Environmental, Ingestion.

Wandering Dew causes reactions in 70% of dogs, Grass & grass seeds are another. Dust mites, flea eggs, dust and fleas can also cause skin rashes. 

Ingestion allergies can be caused from high wheat content in food and beef is another common allergy.
