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!

Is your dog licking or chewing itself?
He could be telling you something

It is more than likely he has an allergy - but how can you stop him itching?

The most common cause of allergies in dogs can be traced back to the food they are eating, and many holistic vets recommend switching any itchy dog to a complete and balanced home-prepared diet containing "real foods."

This will decrease the dog's exposure to unnecessary or complex chemicals and carbohydrate "fillers", e.g. cereals and grains used by so many of the larger commercial dog food manufacturers, and give his body the opportunity to utilise the higher-quality proteins and nutrients present in fresh foods.

Mother Nature intended dogs to be carnivores, raw is best, but whether you prepare a diet of cooked or raw, the increased nutrient quality and availability of fresh whole foods will improve the health of any dog who currently receives even the best dry or canned foods.

And in addition, fresh home cooked meals will take the pressure and strain of his pancreas of trying to produce the digestive enzyme "amylase", that is necessary for the digestion of refined carbohydrates, which is not natural for a dog.

"Feeding fresh, unprocessed, organic foods provides more of the building blocks for a healthy immune system", says Dr. Lisa Pesch, a holistic vet in Sebastopol CA. "Dogs who have allergies are more likely to be deficient in trace proteins and sugars (proteoglycans) that are needed by their immune systems. Deficiencies in these nutrients will increase dogs allergic responses".
