Using neem powder during pregnancy
I was given a bottle of neem and yucca powder to rub on my dog to prevent fleas and ticks. The vet knew I was pregnant and said it was safe for me to use on my dog. I was supposed to rub it on my dog's fur from head to tail once a week. I put a little in my hand and decided, I should research this more before I use it.
After researching neem on the internet, I find some sites that say it is unsafe to use while pregnant. I know the skin absorbs stuff, but would my skin absorb that much from the application of it to harm the baby? I'm really scared now. I'm 4 months pregnant and don't want to hurt the baby.
