What is Fetch! Naturals and What Makes it Special?
What makes Fetch! special is that all our products are made from 100% plant aqueous extract and are formulated to human standards, which means, you can use them too! We are the first in the Philippines to proudly share our products are for human use, FDA registered, BAI Registered, and DOST tested. We are also first to create products using 100% Neem Extract and 100% Jicama Extract.
Our Neem Pet Care System is first to have grooming, healing, and cleaning products with 100% Neem Extract as the first listed ingredient, which means that it is the main base of our products. Other pet products use a standard shampoo solution or water as base, then add Neem or other plant oils & extracts to the mix which doesn’t make it as effective. This is why our products have yellow or green color because what you get is totally pure extract.

What is Neem?
The Neem tree (or Azadirachta Indica) is a tropical plant found in India and in Southeast Asian countries. In India, the tree is known as the village pharmacy, as the seeds, bark and leaves contain compounds with proven antiseptic, antiviral, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal uses. In fact, extracts from the Neem leaves not just moisturize but also have anti-parasitic properties which repel fleas, ticks, mange mites, and ringworm.
- An important application of Neem is as a “natural pesticide” because it has azadirachtin, a hormone-like compound that disrupts the eating, mating behavior & molting of fleas, ticks, mange mites & most bugs. It also has Salannin, a compound that is found to help repel bugs.
- Neem has nimbin and related compounds that are found to have anti microbial & anti-fungal properties. This is why neem is used to help treat wounds & infections, & acts as a deodorizer.
- The plant contains Quercetin, an anti-oxidant that gives Neem its moisturizing & anti-inflammatory properties. The Neem tree is currently one of the most studied plants for pet care due to its effective yet non-toxic uses. Today, Neem based pet care products are popular in Europe and in the USA.
Benefits of Neem for Pets
Neem has many skin benefits for your dogs, cats, and furry pets:
It naturally moisturizes skin and coat without making the fur sticky or oily
Soothes irritated skin and hot spots
Naturally repels and helps gets rid of ticks and fleas
Helps clean up mange and wounds
Naturally deodorizes so no more “wet dog” smell!
Neem has been proven to be effective with different types of pest, though speed of effectiveness may vary. Remember, this is a natural remedy so just be patient and see how this safely repels bugs away from your pets.
How Does Neem Eliminate Ticks & Fleas?
You don’t need harsh chemicals to rid off creepy crawlies. This is because Neem contains azadirachtin, a non-toxic substance that interferes with the hormones of pests, which stops them from mating, reproducing, and eating. It also has salannin, an effective insect repellant which is as effective (but so much safer) than DEET. Neem has been proven to be effective with different types of pest, though speed of effectivity may vary. Remember, this is a natural remedy so just be patient and see how this safely repels bugs away from your pets.
Is Neem Safe?
It’s 100% safe! Not only is it safe for your pet’s fur, should your dog or cat accidentally lick some off him or herself, the small amount of ingested Neem can boost the immune system and kill intestinal parasites. Safe for the environment too as Neem is 100% biodegradable.
