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:

      I tried to use this on my nine month old Border Collie Mix and he did not like it AT ALL. The box says, "Some dogs may experience temporary startle effects when product is applied." As soon as I applied it, he ran away and then continued to run around the house scared of me. He tried rubbing it off but it wasn't coming off. I ended up having to give him a bath. Also, the smell is quite pungent. Even after I gave him a bath, I can still smell it. The cons outweigh the pros.

          Neither dog seemed to care for the application of this product. My white beagle tolerated it and it seems to have stopped her biting. I think it smells very nice. Yes it does smell like cloves. Problem however is that her white fur has been stained yellow. My pointer disliked the application to the point that she rolled on her back and rubbed nearly all of it off. I need to have a natural product however so I will continue to use this flee control product. My dogs may not be pleased but I am.

              I used the product after I found a couple fleas on my dogs. I gave them long, sudsy baths that killed the fleas more effectively than this product. I put it on in hopes that it deter and kill anything their bath may have missed. She had relief for a few days, but apparently after the smell fades, so does the product. We're into natural products, but this product has been a major disappointment.

                  I have use this product for three years, I'm very crazy about it. I have 6 pets, which 5 of them are inside. It's all natural, and it works . I have never had fleas r ticks since I started using it. When I used the stuff from the vet it made my 2 small Dogs sick. I highly recommend it. Yes the smell is strong for the first day or 2 but it works.

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

                      I'd like to start by saying that I read every single review I could find about Sentry Natural Defense before I made the purchase. My dog has terrible reactions to K9 Advantix and Frontline Plus. She vomits and has diarrhea for days and she twitches and is restless. I had to find natural products to prevent fleas and ticks. When I started using this product she had no fleas or ticks so I am using it for a repellent, not an infestation. It does have a strong smell (like a candle store) at first, but this lasted maybe 24 hours. I liked the smell. It did leave a greasy, yellowish streak down her back for two days, but then it was gone. My dog is white with yellowish spots, that are almost the same color as the product, so this was not an issue that bothered me. I am using this as part of a layered protection. I also use diatomaceous earth in my yard and on the dog and I use Ark Naturals Flea Flicker Tick Kicker spray. This combo is working well to keep my dog free of fleas and ticks and we live in the Pocono mountains where there are lots of pests and wildlife that carries them.

                        Ticks return within about 48 hours, and by 96 hours they are about as prevalent as they were without this "treatment". I have never found an herbal flea or tick treatment that lasts very long. Perhaps it is because the oils used as ingredients are not in sufficient concentration, either due to expense or to discomfort of the animal (noticeable but not a big hindrance).

                            My fiance and I have been using this product on our Finnish Spitz because his mom recommended it and going the natural route. Well, for starters, yes it smells. The poor dog runs away everytime we pull one out for her monthly dose. She's terrified of it and once we put it on she walks around whining for days until it finally wears off. Not to mention you have to deal with the smell around your house and in your bed.

                            The best part of the ineffectiveness of the product was the tick I found on my little pup the other day. Stuck right in there on the back of her neck where we apply the preventative. Still moving I have to add.

                            Pretty certain the product is ineffective, smells terrible, scares my dog and I'll have to revert to something different.

                                Unfortunately, this product has been really disappointing. I placed it on my 4-year-old doberman. The doberman is now BALDING at the application sites. When I called the company, they advised me to bath my dog with Dawn dish detergent to remove the product from the dog. They said the balding will get worse before it gets better. They were right about that. Now, my beautiful doberman looks like she is a diseased dog. She's losing clumps of hair along her back, and now in other places even though I bathed her thoroughly. WHen I asked if her hair would grow back, their response was: "It should, but we're not guaranteeing anything." Unbelievable! I'm beside myself that there is a chance my dog will now have permanent bald spots. Not worth the risk if you ask me. She was supposed to be in a show in June. Now, she won't be able to enter.

                                  Used a prescription flea & tick from the vet and my Poochon got really sick, first time we used this specific brand, it was like poison on him that I immediately had to give him a bath to get it off of him after I realized what it was that got him so sick. That's when I sought a organic flea & tick solution and this worked perfectly on him. I don't mind the smell as it smells like cloves and he is happy little camper.
