For cats and dogs.

Cat and Dog ImageWhy your pet needs this:
Fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, biting flies and their kind are a nuisance for everyone in the family, but especially for our more vulnerable animal companions. Cats and dogs can’t protect themselves and they rely on us to keep them safe from insect parasites. Although pesticide sprays and squeeze-on products are one quick-fix solution, for most of us, the risks of using these toxic chemicals on and around our human and animal loved ones are just not worth it.


Fortunately, there is a safe and effective alternative to keep those nasty insects at bay. Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Spray is a natural insect repellent spray that's safe for dogs and cats - and their people! It contains no DEET, organophosphates, or other dangerous pesticides, and it can even be used with puppies and kittens too young for other flea remedies.


Cat and Dog ImageWhy it works:
Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Spray uses lemongrass, citronella, neem oil, catnip, and other natural herbal extracts to keep away every variety of annoying insect pest. Most people and pets don't mind the herbal-citrus scent, but insects definitely do! It keeps mosquitoes and biting flies off your pet's vulnerable ears, saving days of scratching and discomfort from itchy bites. Spraying your dog and your pant legs before your daily walk or a hike will deter ticks and reduce your risk of picking up those disease carrying hitchhikers.

Of course, you can use this natural repellent as needed with outdoor cats and with dogs before a trip to the dog park, doggy day care, training class, etc., to minimize the chances of bringing home fleas, the worst insect enemy of all. Our customers agree that this herbal spray is gentle, and best of all, effective for keeping nasty insects off their pets (please see their comments below this product description).

Our Herbal Defense Spray also works well as part of a holistic flea prevention or treatment plan. If you are preparing for flea season or already involved in a battle with fleas, please see our article, The Natural Approach to Flea Control, for helpful tips and suggestions. We've also grouped our natural flea remedies into convenient kits based on the severity of your flea situation to save you time and money in gathering your weapons to win the war on fleas, safely and naturally.

Why you should go natural:
Toxic chemical pesticides have been known to cause immediate health crises in some dogs and cats, and perhaps worse, these chemicals can circulate and accumulate in our pets' bodies, doing unseen damage to vital organs that may go undetected for years. And then there is the damage these chemical residues can do to our children, ourselves, and the environment. Pesticides used in the home and yard leave residue in our systems, too, and many pesticide residues end up in our water supply, with their lingering presence detectable in soil and water samples for many years, and perhaps indefinitely.

Current research findings suggest that beyond their immediate toxic impact on natural ecosystems, many chemical residues break down into compounds that mimic hormones and may wreak havoc on wildlife populations that are exposed to them.In many parts of the country, insect pests like fleas are becoming immune to the pesticides being used against them, creating "super pests" that become even tougher to eradicate and require even more toxic solutions to kill them. Using natural products to keep insects away prevents this problem.

Our Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense products are a natural line of insect repellent spray and bath products that are non-toxic, and safe to use for dogs, cats, and humans. These top quality natural insect repellants use herbal ingredients to safely and effectively make your pets less attractive to insect parasites, without the dangerous effects of those toxic chemical products. Herbal Defense and our other natural products for protection from fleas and ticks give you peace of mind, as well as great results.

Cat and Dog ImageComplementary Approaches:
When fighting fleas, especially a severe infestation, it is always more effective to approach the problem from more than one angle. Here are some other strategies that you may want to consider along with Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Spray:

  • Only Natural Pet All-in-One Flea Remedy is the one solution to rid your dogs, cats, carpet, furniture, and pet bedding of any annoying insects.
  • Consider our Herbal Defense Shampoo and Conditioner to keep your pet's coat clean and soft, while repelling insect parasites.
  • Many people find our Brewer's Yeast & Garlic tabs to be helpful in making their pets less attractive to fleas.
  • The quality of your pet's food is an important determinant in their ability to fight fleas. A poor diet means a weaker immune system and greater attractiveness to fleas. If you are not feeding your pet a high quality, natural food, you might want to consider changing. Any of the brands sold at Only Natural Pet Store for dogs and for cats would qualify as high quality and natural.

In general the difficulty and length of time required to win a battle against a flea infestation depends on the severity of the problem and the environment in which you live.

Review Rating: 4

Country of Origin: USA

Manufacturer: Only Natural Pet

Shipping Weight: 0.6

Ingredients - SD 40 Alcohol (corn-derived); Sierra Nevada Spring Water, Essential Oils of Organic Lemongrass, Citronella, Patchouli, Clove, Neem Oil, Pennyroyal, and Catnip; and Soybean Oil

Suggested Use

For Dogs

  • Spray thoroughly on fur, including legs and stomach, rubbing it in if necessary.
  • Repeat weekly, or as needed depending on the severity of the insect problem.
  • Always reapply after bathing or when your dog gets completely wet.
  • Be careful not to spray in the eyes, nose, or mouth.

For Cats

The essential oils used in this formula are very diluted and should be well tolerated by most cats, however, a small number of cats may be sensitive to them, so use the spray lightly, particularly on the first application. For cats that dislike having spray applied directly on them, spray Herbal Defense lightly on a cloth and then rub the cloth over your cat, or apply sparingly with a cotton ball around ears or other vulnerable areas, avoiding the eyes, nose, and mouth.

Caution

Discontinue use if your pet shows any change in condition that concerns you, and contact your veterinarian if problem persists.

Please remember, this product is a repellant and you may use small amounts, especially before going outside. In large amounts, the essential oils may temporarily discolor white hair or fur. If you notice discoloration that you dislike on your pet, wash your dog with a shampoo or dishwashing liquid that contains detergents, as this is the most effective way to remove the oils.

    Comments about Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Spray:

    We used this on our 13 year old Shiba Inu while on a camping trip and the flies, gnats and other bugs were terrible. He is usually not very cooperative when using things like this, I sprayed some on him then put some on a cloth and wiped it on his ears. He didn't seem to mind it at all and was not bothered by the bugs for the remainder of the trip. I love this product and especially knowing that it is all natural and safe for him. Smells good too!

    Comments about Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Spray:

    This was a pleasure to have because it was a full coverage product used once a week in conjunction with brewers yeast worked 100% effective and I had no reservations about a chemical reaction or sensitivity to it. I like that my family members weren't faced with chemicals either. This is what pest control is about 100% safety first and 100% effective Hallelujah free at last.

    Repellent doesn't repel

    Comments about Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Spray:

    Though the repellent sprays on easily and has a pleasant spicy smell, my tri-colored rat terriers HATE it and, worse, it really doesn't seem to be working all that well! Both dogs will run if they see the bottle, but if I'm sneaky(and I have all sorts of strategies to "annoint" them before each daily walk on the nature trails near home) I can stand them up on hind legs and spray their bellies and legs, then spray my hand to rub on their heads, backs and necks. They immediately begin to roll in the grass or rub against bushes to remove the oily spray. But, long story short, it doesn't really work. We have ticks galore here in SW Virginia, and I find at least one on each dog every day. Sometimes more. The rubbing they do isn't sufficient to really remove the spray--I can smell it for hours afterward--and maybe it's keeping most of the ticks off them, but it's not a very happy situation to still be finding inflated buggers on them VERY frequently. I check them over at least twice a day, but ticks are still finding their way to attaching. So, to prevent the worse problem of infection, I'll have to go back to pesticides. VERY disappointing!

      Comments about Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Spray:

      I enjoy essential oils so it was easy to order this product. My Min Pin has short fur and is exposed to a lot of pests and flora that irritate her skin so this spray addresses both the biting bugs and the abrasions and hotspots she gets while outside. Not sure of all the ingredients that are actually in the product since the label indicates a list then mentions other ingredients not listed. I like that the product can be used daily or weekly. My dog (and I) experienced no hypersensitivity issues after application. Fast shipping and well-packaged. The item came undamaged and the spray cap was secured with strong tape. Nothing leaked :) Will be buying this again since it's economical and cost-effective when compared with my home brew of the same ingredients. Thanks!

        Comments about Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Spray:

        I bought this last Spring and used it throughout the whole summer. I have a white boxer with many sensitivitys and allergies. He didn't have any side effects to this spray. When I sprayed his body with it, I never saw bug bites on him or mosquitos or other bugs pestering him. It worked the same for my other boxer as well. I sprayed it on them daily if we were camping and weekly if we were home. It lasts a long time and works well even in the deep woods which is where we camp often with our dogs. I am very pleased with this product.

                This spray is wonderful. I use it first thing in the morning so it dries quickly and protects him all day. I enjoy the smell but hubby not thrilled about it, but since the dog doesn't scratch all day, hubby accepts the smell :)

                Product works as well as pesticde laced products but does not eliminate all fleas. You must use after bathing pet and before letting pet outdoors.
