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!

Are you vertically challenged getting rid of fleas in your curtains and drapes?

Whilst fleas love to live and lay their eggs on pets and carpets, they are equally at home in curtains and drapes.

We hang curtains and drapes to keep the sun out in summer and the warm air in during winter. In doing so, we inadvertently provide a perfect haven for fleas to set up home - warmth and accumulated dust, year in and year out.

The accumulation of dust comes from the fact that people tend to only wash or dry-clean curtains and drapes during an annual spring clean.

If your home has fleas don't stop with the family pet, carpets and furniture, carry on and do an early spring clean.

Most curtains can be safely washed at home in a washing machine. however it is advisable to check labels for any specific directions/laundry instructions before you start.

The fabric of your drapes and their size will be the determining factors of whether you can wash your drapes safely at home or not. Again check labels for cleaning instructions.

Once your curtains and drapes are clean and rehung it's a good idea to give them a spray with an indoor flea repellant spray. Before you start, do a spot check first in an area that isn't noticeable - a good area to use is the turn section, which wont be noticed if your fabric reacts adversely to the spray.

You best weapon against fleas in your home is your vacuum cleaner, so once your curtains are nice and clean follow up with a through vacuuming, and then vacuum again and again, every time you think of it vacuum.
