About the course

Tea tree oil is widely advocated as a home remedy for skin infections and for controlling flea infestations. Vets may therefore see animals that have been treated with tea tree oil, or owners might ask for advice about its use. This module sets out the evidence on the benefits and harms of tea tree oil in companion animals, and describes what can be done if tea tree oil has caused harm to a pet.
