Let your pet enjoy the outdoors again – without worry and chemicals
DEET is the most common active ingredient in conventional, over-the-counter insect repellents. While effective, manufactures caution and recommend strict guidelines for its use, as it has been found to act as a skin irritant, and can be extremely harmful to animals that may accidently ingest it when cleaning their fur.
However, the risk of heartworm disease transmitted to pets by insects often warrants the need for some form of protection when they are spending time outdoors. Bug Defense is a safe, natural, DEET-free insect repellent for pets that utilizes six natural-repelling oils, especially formulated and allergy tested safe for sensitive skin, offering 100% protection for up to two hours.
The natural way
Areas prone to standing water, such as bird baths, gutters, storm drains or pet bowls, are breeding grounds for mosquitoes, particularly during the warmer months. So, it’s best to keep your pets away from them if possible, and clean their water bowls often. Try not to take your pet out for walks around dawn or dusk, as many mosquito species feed around those times. Consider installing protective screens around your home to help prevent you or your pet from being bitten while outside.
