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!

Fleas love pets, fortunately, nowadays it's dead easy to get rid of them
