To his complete delight, Dr Mercola has discovered a pest deterrent with essential oils that fits the bill—it is called Flea & Tick Defense.
There is one very important point about the ingredients in Flea & Tick Defense, it is not the individual elements that make it so effective, but the expert blending and balancing of the Brazilian oils with the pure water. This is what distinguishes a natural deterrent product from just natural ingredients.
The Flea & Tick Defense can be used by itself or in combination with other Mercola Healthy Pets pest repellent products for maximum protection. Give your best friend the protection it needs today!
Product Complete Label with Usage Directions
This product contains essential oils. Check to make sure your pet is not sensitive to essential oils. See the FAQs.
Q : Can I use the Herbal Repellent Collar, Spot On Topical Herbal Repellent, and Flea & Tick Defense together?
A : Yes, all three repellent products were designed to be used either individually or together, depending on where you live and your pet’s exposure to pests. It is recommended to use all three together if you live in an area heavily populated with fleas and ticks.
Q : Could the wintergreen essential oil (or any of the other oils in these products) have a negative effect on my pet’s health?
A : Outdated, conventional veterinary medicine has suggested that all essential oils (including wintergreen), could pose a risk to an animal’s health. However, professionally blended essential oils are and have been used for holistic pet remedies safely and effectively for many years. When used correctly, the well-researched oils included in our formulas should not pose any negative health effects, unless your pet is allergic to essential oils or has a medical condition where essential oils should not be used. It is important to apply the product correctly. If your pet has a medical condition, consult with your vet before using this product.
Q : How can I tell if my pet is sensitive to the essential oils in these products?
A : You should always check to make sure that your pet is not sensitive to essential oils prior to using the entire dose. To determine if your pet may be sensitive to the essential oils in Flea & Tick Defense or Spot On Topical Herbal Repellent, apply a small amount of product (one drop) using your finger tip, between the shoulder blades and wait 24 hours to evaluate if a red rash appears or if you observe any other effects. If there is no reaction, apply the remaining amount of product as directed. If itching, flaking, scratching or redness appears, wash the area with soap and water and discontinue use.
Q : What if my pet has any medical or health conditions?
A : It is important that you consult your veterinarian prior to use or application if your pet has a medical or health condition or allergies.
Q : How do I apply the Spot On Topical Herbal Repellent and the Flea & Tick Defense?
A : Snap the cap off the tip of the Spot On Topical Herbal Repellent applicator. Complete sensitivity testing. Part the fur between your pet’s shoulder blades until you can see their skin. Place the applicator tip directly on their skin and apply the recommended amount by gently squeezing the tube. You can apply the repellent in three spots, an inch apart, between the shoulder blades. Wash hands immediately with soap and water after application.
For the Flea & Tick Defense — Shake well before use. Spray generously on your pet, including legs and stomach. Work into the coat. Depending on your pet, spray may require additional rubbing to get product through their entire coat. Avoid contact with mucous membranes by covering your animal’s nose, mouth and eyes when applying near your animal’s head. To apply product to your pet’s head, spray solution onto a paper towel and wipe your pet’s neck, ears and face, carefully avoiding eyes and nose.
Q : Can my pet consume the Spot On or Flea & Tick Defense products?
A : Essential oils do not taste good to dogs and cats. You should avoid contact with the mouth, nose and eyes as noted in the instructions. If contact does occur, you may find your pet salivates or foams from the mouth profusely until the taste is gone. To avoid hypersalivation response, do not allow your pet to lick off the product.
Q : Are herbal pest repellents as effective as harsh commercial repellants?
A : Many people choose harsh chemical-based spot-on products and collars because they are convenient and effective. Herbal pest repellants deter fleas, ticks and mosquitos utilizing essential oils. Herbal pest repellents combined with a regimen of daily grooming and nose-to-tail body checks are useful alternatives.
