A special tip from Carole

Affordable & effective parasitic control

Going natural for flea, tick, mosquito and mite control is the most affordable and cost-effective protection available for your dog.

Compare the cost of an Easy Defense Tag with its one year life span against the expense of other flea and parasitic control medications, which must be continually reapplied on a regular basis. Not only will it save you money, it also offers these additional benefits:

  • Completely safe for your pet with no possible side effects
  • Repels mosquitoes in addition to fleas and ticks
  • Guaranteed to protect your pet from biting insects e.g. mites.

Important Note - If Your Pet Has Fleas:

The Easy Defense Tag is designed for flea and tick prevention, not eliminating infestations. If your pet is already infested by fleas, this means their environment is also infested, and the flea and tick tag on its own will not be enough to remove the infestation. To eliminate existing flea infestations, we strongly recommend complementing the tag with other natural flea removal products:

The Easy Defense Flea & Tick Tag takes just three weeks to activate, and must be clipped to a flea and tick free dog who is kept flea and tick free for the duration of the activation period until protection clicks in.

The tag offers long-lasting protection for your pooch and you will not only gain a happy healthy dog but gain more for your buck. Just clip it on and forget it!

Do you think your dog may have suffered an allergic reaction to the chemical flea and tick control medications you are using?

Risks connected to the use of chemical flea and tick prevention drugs and medication

The newest generation of pesticides are being marketed as far less harmful than the old ones, but they are being deeply misrepresented as harmless.

Click here to read what the analysis and summary of the findings of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has to say about "Are spot-on flea and tick killers" safe and the dangers and risks of using chemical medications on your pet - this information has been known to the drug industry and many vets since as far back as 2002; including a break down of the pesticides and ingredients used by some of the larger drug companies including Frontline and Advantage.

Unsuspecting pet owners acting in good faith

Unsuspecting pet owners acting in good faith who have dogs with fleas, flea allergies and or flea and tick related skin problems are regularly spending hundreds of dollars with their vets on a variety of drugs.

  • Chemical flea protection products.
  • Steroids for treating flea allergies.
  • Antibiotics for treating bacterial infections and hot spots.
  • Tranquilizers to sooth the itchiness and emotional trauma and stress caused by infestations.

The sad but all too truthful fact, is that these toxic medications take a very serious toll on pets' internal organs, particularly their livers and immune systems; and their problems become a never-ending vicious circle of medication and illness.

In fact its more than likely, that your vet has prescribed and sold you some of these lethal concoctions for your precious pet. You may be one of the increasing number of pet owners who have seen their pet have one or more of the following reactions within a short time of being given flea medication.

You may even be one of the unfortunate owners of one of the ever increasing number of dogs which have actually died from chemical flea and tick protection medications.

This is what you need to do

It is of paramount importance that your pet is completely clean and free of fleas/ticks and any of their off-spring in their life cycles before placing a Flea and tick tag on its collar.

A good way to start is to

Only Natural Pet EasyDefense Herbal Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Bath your pet with an herbal shampoo follwed by a herbal conditioner. A quick bath wont do the trick, the secret is to lather up your pet and leave the shampoo on for a minimum of five minutes preferably longer. This way all fleas and any invisible eggs and larvae which form part of the flea cycle will crack open and die. This is a good time to give your pet a gentle massage and to increase your bonding with him.
  • Follow up with an herbal spot-on treatment, which will give your pet protection during the build-up time needed for the technology to fully kick in.

It is important to bear in mind a quick bath and the use of collars or combs are not sufficient to kill off existing parasites.

The last thing you want to do is to leave living parasites or any of their off-spring on you pet when you first attach a flea and tick tag to its collar. Doing this will only create a batch of parasitic larvae which will have acclimatised to the magnetic field building up around your pet and you will end up fleas on your dog which will be immune to the technology of the tags.
