Looking for the ultimate in natural flea & tick protection? Try the Natural Defense Flea Protection Kit which contains a Sentry Natural Defense Squeeze-On and Only Natural Pet EasyDefense Flea & Tick Collar.

Sentry Natural Defense Natural Flea & Tick Squeeze-On for Dogs kills fleas, ticks and mosquitoes for up to four weeks, yet it’s safe to use on your pets and around your family when applied as directed. Each carton contains three monthly applications that feature natural active ingredients such as peppermint oil, cinnamon oil, lemongrass oil and thyme oil.

How Does Natural Defense Work?

Certain plants contain compounds that give them the ability to defend themselves against insects. Natural Defense is a synergistic blend of botanical extracts including peppermint oil, cinnamon oil and lemongrass oil. This combination of oils significantly enhances the pesticidal activity of Natural Defense. How? Octopamine!

Octopamine is a key neurotransmitter found in insects, it is the insect's equivalent of adrenaline. It regulates their heart rate, behavior and metabolism. The unique molecular structure targets and blocks octopamine neurotransmitter receptors in insects. Blocking octopamine results in a total breakdown of the insect's central nervous system. As mammals, fish and birds have no receptors for octopamine, the ingredients do not have this affect on them... or people!

Suggested Use

Do not use on animals under the age of 12 weeks. Do not get this product in your pet's eyes or mouth. Do not bathe pet within the first 24 hours after squeeze-on has been applied. Households with more than one pet should not allow pets to groom each other until solution has dried. Pets may be treated indoors or outdoors. Safe to repeat application as often as needed. Apply contents of one tube as a spot or stripe, starting high on the back of your pet's neck to in front of the shoulder blades. In order to help reduce the occurrence of fleas and ticks, this product is best if used year around.

How to Apply

  • Remove product tube from package.
  • Holding tube with notched end pointing up and away from the face and body, cut or tear off the narrow end at the notches.
  • While holding the animal with one hand use the other to apply the solution.
  • Invert the tube, and use the narrow end to part the animal's hair while gently squeezing to apply to the animal's skin.
  • Hold the animal for a few seconds to give the solution time to be absorbed into the animal's coat.
  • When finished, wrap the tube in paper and put into the trash.

PLEASE NOTE

We have had some reports of reactions such as skin irritation and hair loss at the site of application (see reviews below). In addition, the oils in the Sentry Natural Defense Squeeze-On may temporarily discolor white hair or fur. We recommend testing the product initially by applying a few drops in nape of the neck, and wait 24 hours to evaluate any response before applying the full dose. If you do see an adverse reaction, wash your dog with a shampoo or dishwashing liquid that contains detergents, as this is the most effective way to remove the oils causing the reaction.

    Comments about Sentry Natural Defense Flea & Tick Squeeze-On for Dogs:

    After one of my cats had a very bad reaction to a chemical flea treatment, I started using your all natural treatment. With 10 cats and 2 dogs, I really appreciate how inexpensive they are and I don't have to worry about them getting sick. I also don't have to worry about handling or petting them after they've been treated.

        Comments about Sentry Natural Defense Flea & Tick Squeeze-On for Dogs:

        I've used this product for years on my two big dogs (75 pound each or so) and have found it to be extremely effective. I live in Ohio and typically treat them in May or June with one dose lasting all summer. Unless it's a heavy tick year, then I have to treat again -- once I had to switch to chemical-based product to keep the ticks off -- but overall I love this product and suggest it to everyone.

        Works for my Golden Retriever

          • Larger Pets

          Comments about Sentry Natural Defense Flea & Tick Squeeze-On for Dogs:

          This product comes recommended by the breeder where I got my Golden. He resides in Wisconsin and uses the product on all his dogs. He's had no issues with this product and I've been using it for over a year now and have to say I've had no issues with it either. We've had no ticks or fleas after we began using it. It's terrible to hear other dog owners have issues with this product, but I'm happy with it and will continue to purchase it as it's natural and works for my Enzo.

          P.S. Yes, the smell is strong, but it smells better than any chemicals you could use on your pet.

              Comments about Sentry Natural Defense Flea & Tick Squeeze-On for Dogs:

              Last year in spring my household got an infestation of fleas. I spent months combating it by using chemicals in my house, my yard, and on my 2 dogs. I hated doing that. So this year I thought ahead and put this squeeze on and collars on my dogs starting in February. SURPRISE! NO FLEA INFESTATION THIS YEAR! And they make the house smell great for the first few days!
              They have even been around some friends dogs that had fleas and did not bring any home.
              However, when it comes to ticks I do also put the essential oil blend on their legs and bellies before going into the woods because I have found a few on them after our hikes.
              Overall, I would recommend this product to friends. If you live an outdoorsy lifestyle I would recommend using a couple natural repellents to be most effective. It is a little more work to use all these, but the products are affordable and I feel like it is worth it to not be covering my animals, and home, in chemicals.

              Comments about Sentry Natural Defense Flea & Tick Squeeze-On for Dogs:

              Works well and is natural. It smells a bit strong the first two days (like spices). After that it disipated to a good smell. I will keep buying and recommend it.

                  Found a wood tick on each dog under the flea and tick collar after it had been applied two week prior. Dogs have not been bathed or in water and both had a live tick just inches from collar and inches from where it was squeezed on them. Would not recommend.

                    I am trying this hoping it works and is so much more gentle on my dogs. I did the collars too but really don't like the smell of them, I figure if the smell bothers me it has to bother the dog. Not a bad smell just never goes away.

                    I am going to use the squeeze on all summer and I pray it works. Thanks.

                      I bought enough of these for a year. I love that there are enough for 4 months instead of 3 and have found them to work well. I do want to go to the Easy Defense tags, eventually, but for 8 dogs of my own and one foster dog, it is a lot to put out at one time. I love all of Only Natural Pet Products.
