Neem Oil

Since arriving at IACC we have been researching all sorts of natural remedies for skin issues.  Skin disease is the number one problem we are having with the dogs, and we hear all kinds of suggestions about what to lather on to these suffering pooches!  The remedy which seems to be the most popular, however, is neem oil.  The Neem tree is very common here and yet in order to get reasonably priced oil we have to go all the way to Pondicherry, too far to go by bicycle!  Luckily volunteer Gopika from Chile has a motorbike and offered to go with fellow activist Ingrid to pick it up!  Now we have about 6 liters of it!  We have started using it on the dogs, check in for updates on how it is working!
