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:

    The first application onto my Sheltie was the middle of April. The ticks weren't out yet due to our long, cold winter. We still had snow! May 11th I applied another treatment to my dog. Only two days later I got 2 ticks off him and today another one. A "too good to be true" product. =0(

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

      My review is based on one aspect of this product - the SMELL!!! Oh my gosh...I applied the product as directed to both of my dogs and started to get a headache as the aroma was soooo strong!!! I knew that if it was bothering me, my husband would get a migraine if he smelled it. I have bathed both of my dogs twice in 6 hour time frame and can not get the odor completely off them. The aroma is also now in my couch as that is where one of them waited while I bathed the first. We have had to open all the windows in the house to try and air it out. I returned the product to the store with the empty containers inside and even the manager commented on the strong smell.

          I use this product on my very sensitive german shepherd and it works very well.
          I often have foster dogs who do have fleas and ticks however the bugs do not infest my german shepherd. The only con is that it smells strong, but I will take that over applying chemicals that my GSD reacts to any day!

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

          I have a Bichon Frise. After about an hour, a huge yellow stain was on her back where I had applied it. I haven't bathed her yet to see if it will come out but it looks horrible. And the smell is REALLY strong. But it seems to have gotten rid of the fleas, she's not scratching anymore. And it's all natural and affordable.

            I like that this is all natural but the smell is so strong it will stink up a room. even my dog hates the smell the first day and tries to roll around in the dirt to get it off. I can barely breathe around it. Luckily that subsides after a day.

                  I put this on my white Jack Russell, the smell was awful for me and for my dog. It was even in my bed from her trying to get this product off of her. This product turned her fur orangish-yellow. I even bathed her with dish dawn soap to try to get it out of her fur. It did not work.

                      I put this on my 7 year-old Corgi at 1:00pm and at 4:15 pm she vomited green/yellow liquid. She rarely throws up. This stuff smells so strong I'm sorry I did this to her. Pine scent. Who needs pine scent in a flea treatment??? I didn't notice this on the box until I got the box home, I was so busy comparing what it did and what it cost with the other brands. I am very disappointed with myself for buying this product.
