Using Neem and Neem Oil
For Pets and Other Animals

Can you use neem oil for pets? Sure you can! I have already written about the use of neem and neem oil in dogs and cats on other pages of this site.

But of course pets are not the only animals we may want to use neem products on. Farm animals may also need some help from neem. Some readers are concerned about the safety of neem in wild animals. (Neem is NOT safe for aquatic animals!)

Also, readers still sometimes have additional questions about the use of neem products in their pets.

And then there are also some great reports and success stories that my readers have sent me after they used neem leaf or neem oil for their pets or other animals.

This page is a collection of all those reports and questions. I hope it helps.
