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

This is a great product. The smell is a little strong the first few days but it is not unpleasant. It seems to work just as well as the expensive stuff I was buying from my vet. My dog has not had any problems with fleas or ticks.

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

Like a lot of others here I was not happy about putting poison on my buddy, but don't want fleas in the house either. After reading up on products & reviews on this site I went with a multi-tiered approach this summer. My dog has been getting brewers yeast/garlic tablets daily, on the spot treatment once a month & a weekly spritz of the only natural flea spray. We haven't had a single flea or tick all summer (and we've spent part of it in the north woods of Michigan). All of the products combined are still cheaper than our old, chemical on the spot treatment & even though it's more work it's worth it knowing we're not poisoning our dog.

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

For 4 years we used what the Vet had told us to for Flea & Tick repelent. Every month our little Maltese would by sick for 2 to 3 days after the application. Finally I did some research and discovered your product. Even the Vet gave us the go-ahead to use it. The smell is plesant (but stong the 1st day), and most important she did not get sick!! Thank you, Thank you

I do like the easy application, but its very smelly, dogs try to roll around on back to get it off. Did find some live ticks on my dogs. Some were inbedded in skin. Did not like this. Maybe for some it works good, i would say it was fair. Could have been worse.

I decided that I wanted to stop using harsh (and expensive) chemicals on my dogs to control fleas, so I went looking for an alternative that was affordable and effective. So far, natural defense has been effective and it has shown no side effects on the dogs - and it is reasonably priced.

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

We used this on our 3 year old lhasanese this year and I am a big fan! We have had bad tick issues the last 3 years every spring no matter what product we've used. This year we've tried Natural Defense stuff (we're trying to make our life more organic in general) & I'm happy to report not a single tick yet (knock on wood)!

We did a test spot to make sure he wasn't allergic & then we applied it along his whole back the next day. We've never had a flea issue, so I can't speak to it's effectiveness for that.

The smell is very strong, but it just smells like lemon and clove and stuff, not like gross artificial perfumes so I didn't mind it. He's a very long-haired dog, and it DID leave his hair kinda greasy. the box said you could bathe them after 24 hrs... I think we gave it 3-4 days.

I'd say the smell and the oily hair are worth it! This is sooo much less toxic than other products that also stink and make them greasy, so what's the difference?

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

We began using exclusively non-chemical treatments in our house and on our pets when we got pregnant with our first child. This product is just as effective as any chemical tick prevention you'd get from a vet (still find an occasional tick), but we are confident it is not harming our pet or our son. It is much less expensive than anything from a vet also.

The day after using this product on my 3 dogs 1 of them had a tick. I assumed the product needed a day to "soak in". The next week another dog had a tick and the following week the 3rd dog had a tick.
I was so happy to find something that didn't seem as bad as the posions they advertise on T.V. only to find I may have to go back to them because this product DID NOT WORK.

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

I've been using this product for two months on 3 large dogs who spend the entire day (12 hours +) outdoors in a tree-filled yard and so far we've only had one tick, no fleas. Two years ago one of my dogs had a seizure an hour after I applied an expensive topical spot-on so I was very pleased to find this safe alternative for our animals, us and the earth. I would like to recommend to new users that if you live in a humid area prone to infestation, plan on having a multi-pronged approach to flea control. We also vacuum frequently, use the outstanding ONP All-in-One Flea Remedy on furniture, carpets, bedding and animals, and use the ONP Herbal Defense Spray on animals and bedding. It's more work than plopping poison on your pet's neck once a month but completely worth it. Not a flea in sight, and everyone is safe!

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

I had two dogs before the little cairn/silky mix I have now. I never used those spot on treatments before. I use only natural things with this new dog. She is one year old and ten pounds. I hug and pet her a lot, so did not want all this poison on me either.
I decided to try this Sentry Natural Defense. She had no side effects whatsoever. I did not even read all these reviews until today, she has had it on for about two weeks now. We live in Texas and there is always a flea problem. I brush her every day and walk her every day. She goes in everyones grass when we walk, so far no fleas. We do not have a big tick problem here, but I still check.
I checked her skin after reading all these reviews about problems of hair loss or rash and see nothing of that on her. I put it on her while on the leash and then took her for a walk, so it would be on her correctly. I used the whole tube, it came out a little fast in mostly one spot.
She still smells good after two weeks. She did not like the strong smell of the spray I was using, so I just put it on the brush to brush it on her. So far I like this spot treatment and have been using the spray on her daily brushings less. Before I used it every day before the walk. Mosquitoes love to bite me, but they seem to leave her alone.

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

We live in a densely wooded area in Arkansas and the ticks seem to be particularly bad this year.
Abby is not an outdoor dog (SCWT) but I walk her up to three miles every day. She has some allergies so I was anxious to try the Natural Defense on her. I did not feel the smell was overpowering...not any stronger than some candles I burn!! She appeared to have absolutley no reaction to it and it has killed the ticks that I have missed during her combings. (Some of the ticks are very, very small.) It also does not leave the bad residue on her coat which the other tick control products did. I am happy I found this "natural" product to use on my dog and you sure cannot beat the price. I highly recommend it.

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

After losing both of our family's cats at an early age, we were determined not to make the same mistake again and decided not to put any chemicals on our dogs that we wouldn't use on ourselves. We were so happy to find this product because we live in NC and there are always a TON of ticks in the Spring and Summer, especially since we like to take our dogs for walks in the woods and swims in the lake. They smell like hippies ( from the essential oils) and so far the only one in the family to have a tick on them this Spring has been me! :-)

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

I have used this product for 3 months now on my Puggle and Rat Terrier. The puggle had a terrible reaction to a vet recommended product which prompted me toward natural treatments. We live near water and never considered it before becuase of the mosquito issue until this happened. The smell is strong for a couple days but it has worked great and the dogs don't seem to mind it! Versed a complete breakdown from the puggle within minutes with the other product. So far no pest have been seen. I was further pleasantly surprised to find I got 3 treatments in each box for a fraction of the cost of vet care product!

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

I really like this product. It is a great value for the money and it is safe for your pets. I have never used it on a larger pet, because my dog is a Shih-Tzu. I wanted something that was safe, but yet effective for both ticks and fleas. I have not had a problem with him having either. It has a great almost calming scent to it, another aspect I like of this product. I only wish it absorbed into his coat a little quicker. It is a mixture of natural oils, so I make sure it is dry before I let him on anything in my home. I no longer wanted to put the chemicals on him that come from leading tick and flea products that I have heard numerous dangerous things about. I would highly recommend this. Just try it!

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

The smell was initially strong but pleasant. The smell disapated in about two days. I walk my dogs in wooded areas and have not found any fleas or ticks on them. I like that I am not putting chemicals on my dogs. I lost two dogs to lymphoma and vets suspect chemicals can play a large part in the onset of lymphoma. I also noticed that the product was less irritating to my dogs. They would show a sensitivity to the application site for a few days with my old product but I noticed none with this product. This was my first month using the product but I am definitely going to give it a second try.

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

I am a huge advocate of holistic pet care, so I have used other natural flea repellents in the past. This is the first time I have used this particular brand. It squeezes on easily and my dog has had no problems. The "spice" scent is extremely strong for a day or two. Not unpleasant, just a strong clove smell. My husband and I could smell it even with the dog in the next room.

Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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

A week after we applied Sentry Natural Defense Flea & Tick Squeeze-On on our miniature poodle, he got infested with fleas (found them after brushing the dog) and started scratching badly. We were very happy when Sentry Natural Defense Flea & Tick Squeeze-On product appeared on the market. However, the product is not working, at least not in the areas which have bigger problems with fleas, such as Florida.

We used to live in California, where fleas are not such a big problem. We used Only Natural Pet's "Herbal Defense Spray" product and it worked well for several years in California. When we moved to Florida, we found a tick on a dog and were advised to switch to the more reliable protection (Frontline Plus). We were not happy at all to have to give our dog the pesticides and were very glad when the Sentry Natural Defense Flea & Tick Squeeze-On natural/herbal product appeared on the market. We were disappointed that it did not work at all.

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

I decided to look for a natural flea & tick control product to be used on my beagle instead of using a chemical based one. The essential oil smell is really strong and my beagle absolutely hates it. She would march around the house for hours and try to rid the smell by rolling on the floor and furniture. This behaviour will just last about half a day. However I will still continue to use this over the odourless chemical products. So far, it appears to be effective in flea control.

I have used this product on my 2 small dogs and have found it to be effective. During the summer I looked every day after walking my dogs.

I much prefer using oils to using harmful chemicals.

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

I used this product on my five dogs ( Chow, Lab mix, Rottie-Lab mix, fluffy Parson Russel mix and Pitt-Border Collie mix with medium lenght hair). The smell was overwelming the first day. My hubby and I got headaches. The smell did subside a lot the following day though. Also there were oily stains on the furniture wherever the kids leaned against. They stopped itching for three days. My Pitt mix girl got an irritation that wasn't too severe but did require some unti-infflamatory meds. On the day four everybody (except for Chow)started to itch again. I'm very dissapointed in this product. I really hoped that it would work 'cuz I don't want and would hate to use pesticide and insecticide containing products on my babies. Having five furry kids and being pregnant I need something natural that works fast. So now I'm at loss...

Only Natural Pet Store Response: We cannot stress enough the importance of test pacthes when using this product since results are so varied. It is so popular because its easy- but with some effort other products like the flea powder and defense sparay are highly effective.

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

I wouldn't put chemicals all over my body, and I don't want to do that to my dog, Malaki. I was delighted to find this natural oil repellent, that really works. It is important to reapply at least the once monthly per the directions, and in the heat of summer, I may do it every three weeks. But it has been very effective in keeping my dog tick and flea free.

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

I started with a skin test because I have a beagle that has sensitive skin. Neither of my dogs had an adverse reaction after 24 hours so I applied half a tube to each of my dogs. I have smaller dogs and opted to do half a tube on each dog every two weeks and it seems to be doing the trick. I did find one flea on my miniature schnauzer last night but, it had been over two weeks so they just got a fresh dose. The smell is powerful but pleasant. My dogs are actually like little air fresheners for a couple of days. haha! I am glad I decided to give this a try. I have been a dedicated frontline plus user for years and was looking for a healthier, more natural option since my beagle suffers from many health conditions including siezures. I will buy this product again and would recommend it to others.

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

This product really works. The odor is a strong natural oil smell, but it's not bad. It works the entire month and we've not found 1 flea or tick (none have even hitched a ride inside!) since we've used this product. Will definitely buy more. Super alternative to harsher treatments and the cost is fantastic.

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

Very easy to apply and I like the aroma, no chemical smell at all. My dogs don't have a problem with the smell either as they did with the toxic ones. So far I am using it as a preventive and have not been using it that long (only one time) to critique if it is totally effective. I do like it very much so far though.

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

I like this product. I can't vouch for it's effectiveness yet since I haven't been outside in the park with my dogs. The heat here in Arizona prevents that. The odor was very strong for the first day or two, but after that, it was nice to come home and smell the oils. My dog's coats were soft and smelled nice for months after.

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

I've used this the past 3 months during tick season in Nebraska, and have not found a single tick on my Old English Sheepdog since - which is impressive considering his thick coat. Also I even used the "15-40 lb" version, and it worked just fine for my 70 lb dog, and seemed to last upwards of 5-6 wks.

Prior to using, the groomers would find 2-3 ticks. NOTE: this product does not KILL the ticks like Frontline - but it does deter them really well. The drawback to this is the ticks abandon him and look for me, as I've found them on my bed & head since he's no longer a safe harbor. The good thing about this is that Sentry is not a carpet bomb treatment like frontline - there's no need to infuse your dog with pesticides to the point where their blood is seething with the stuff to make anything that touches it die on contact. Why dont you just wrap your dog in electric fencing for that matter.

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

I used this product because it was all natural - but it caused so much irritation on my 3 Great Danes that I have to take them to the vet today. Itching, scratching, huge red bumps all along the application site. The irritation is significant and causes a lot of pain for them - one cries each time I touch his back. These are huge blister-like bumps that bleed. Not happy at all.

Only Natural Pet Store Response: Please do not forget to test spot- especially on short haired animals or those known to have sensitive skin.

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

I was hesitant to try this product after seeing some of the negative reviews. Yes, it does have a very strong odor for a few days (but so do other flea prevention products. Yes, it did leave a little oily patch for a few days, but so do other products. Overall, I am pleased and would reccommend it to other pet owners. I know the product doesn't "wear off" as my dog has been swimming twice since the initial application and I can still detect the faint smell of the product and it is just now time to re-apply. I also love the fact that it is all natural which is my main reason for buying it.

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

I have found that at this point we need to use it every two weeks and it took two applications to see a huge difference. Now instead of 10+ ticks daily I am finding maybe one or two a week, so in my book it is working VERY well, even with the toxic flea/tick controlers you still get a few ticks. The only con is that we have to crack our windows the first day we put it on them because the smell will drive you crazy. After a couple of days the smell is almost nonexistent. It's not that it smells BAD but it is just strong. I will keep using this product!

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

I have never used flea and tick preventative such as advantage or frontline because to me it is like spraying a can of raid on your dog. I figured since I like to hike in the woods I would try the all natural option and so far so good! I also love the spice scent. We have been hiking deep into wooded areas and I check my dog everytime we come out. So far not one tick on him nor fleas. Love the product and much better option than chemicals.

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

This worked GREAT on my 2 year old Beagle and my 8 year old Siamese cat. I chose this product because it is safe around children (the Beagle actually belongs to my 6 yr old!). I felt as though it was a safer alternative than the other kinds with chemicals. I had no problems with irritation or anything else. I realize different pets can react differently just like humans taking meds. Please check a small are before applying the whole tube. I buy this year after year!!!

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

I thought I would try this because I don't like having to use chemicals on my dogs but I was so dissapointed. The first thing I didn't like was the smell, it was VERY strong , my entire house stunk. One of my dogs started itching about a day after the application, and she got a rash on her stomach. When I used a flea comb on them, I found a few fleas, and decided it just wasn't working. It might be ok if you live in an area without a lot of fleas and your dog doesn't go out to dog parks, or be out side a lot, but I wouldn't recommend it other wise.

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

I was very disappointed with this product. It said it was natural and would get rid of fleas & ticks.

This product caused a red "measles-like" rash all over genitals, rear end, legs and feet of my (2)-12 month old Schnoodles. It was awful and iched them all the time. I had to purchase medication to help them and bathed them often. It also caused yellow stain on my white dog that would not wash off! And,...worst of all,...it did not rid the dogs of fleas at all! The fleas seem to increase on dogs and all of them moved to the genital area, rear-end and legs of the dogs!

This was a waste of my money. I bought (2) packages and am going to return (1) package that has not been used. Hopefully, I will get my money back.

Sorry, but I cannot recommend this natural product to others and the smell is very strong!!!

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

Decided to give this a try after using the Frontline Plus for the past couple years. It seems to work every bit as good as the frontline, and I'm very pleased that it does not contain any of the toxic and potentially harmful pesticides that are in the other flea-prevention products commonly used. Yes, the smell is rather strong and tends to linger for several days, but I personally like it (gives hubby a headache though) and it doesn't seem to bother the dogs. I haven't noticed any adverse reactions to the product thus-far. Definitely will use again.

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

I am extremely pleased with this product. I have searched and searched for natural anti-tick concoctions and am pleased with Sentry's product. I can't believe a major industrial mfr made one to be honest and I was skeptical at first but tried it when I read reviews here. I use this product on 3 very large dogs (140, 120 and 90 pounds each) who are active in a known high tick area. NO TICKS AT ALL THIS YEAR. ZERO. I must add however that I take two other (natural) precautions. 1) I apply rose geranium essential oil to their collars as well. 2) I also spray the yard with something to deter ticks that is herbal. But these dogs are in other places often without that scented collar on and still NO TICKS! I am allergic to common pet products with insecticides and even some human bug sprays so am very pleased to find a natural product THAT WORKS! The one thing some users might not enjoy is the very very strong peppermint / clove type scent that lasts for 3-4+ days. Me? I do not care ... my dogs and my family are healthy and safe and that matters the most. Also, my white dog ended up with a faint yellowish mark as a stripe but this does not bother me ... might bother you. Please note that I have a feeling it really does run out at the 4 week mark so do not delay in applying the next dose. Even with these gentle "con's", I CAN HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!! I hope you found this review useful - please note that in other years before I found this product, I ended up with ticks on me (one had me on antibiotics) and I am PARANOID about getting them. This gives you an idea about how pleased I am personally with this product. :-)

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

I absolutely regret applying this to my dog. He is miserable! About an hour after I put it on him he became severely irritated. He will not sit still for 3 seconds, he is continuously whining and crying. He is also gagging. I don't know what to do about it besides give him a bath. My skin on my face also seems to be irritated by it... and this is not the first time. I don't care if it is all natural or helps with fleas. This is torture. I say, don't take a risk...

This product works very well on my 2 1/2 yr old pit bull terrier. I previously used Revolution and it caused a horrific reaction where she lost her fur in the treatment area. The Sentry works like it says it will and hasn't bothered my dog at all. I've been using it about a year now. It does have a pungent smell of herbs but I found if you put it on before bed it is diminished by morning. It is not a "bad" smell.

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

This stuff works better than Frontline and is chemical free! I have pomeranians and one of them has skin problems. She had NONE with this and it got rid of the fleas instantly! The only fleas I found after applying were dead! I dont know about ticks as I am in the city and we dont have any problems with it. But for fleas its the best and so much cheaper than frontline!!

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

Both of our dogs and I cringed when other fleas & tick products were applied. My husband refused to apply the product! But that was before hearing about Sentry. Now we all welcome the 15th of each month because we know the dogs are being protected with a safe, effective and "natural" product.

Thank you so much for caring about our pets (almost as much as we do) :-) AND making these products available for us. Plus your customer service department is wonderful! They make the time to answer every question imaginable...

Sincerely,

Peter & Elisabeth Swiriduk

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

I have 4 dogs (20-40 lbs) from 3-12 years old. We back onto wetland and marsh area that is all natural and heavily treed. I know there is no way that anything will completely get rid of all mosquitoes/ticks/fleas due to the area that we live in unless it's chemical based. The fleas take a few days to die from the oil, so I will probably see a few, but they don't last long. Also, I apply 1/2 the amount, twice as often which seems to keep a more consistent scent on the dogs. I tried using something else, and we had 100 times more fleas - so while it's not perfect, it does make a huge difference and it's not a harmful chemical, and it's a great mosquitoe repellent too. There is nothing "natural" that is a miracle - you have to be willing to compromise for the health of your pets.

I am satisfied with this product. I am a lover of lemongrass, so I actually like the smell of this produce while others find it offensive!! So far, so good - Nannie (norwegian elk) does not seem to be having any major problems with fleas - once in a while I will see her scratching, but when I go to check her out (which is frequently) I find no evidence of any fleas. So I will continue to use this product until we have some type of problem!!

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

I am Disabled and have a Service Dog who goes into the public with me daily. I have always hated the chemical drops.. and Found this product several years ago and began using it... not just because it is not a chemcial but because it works great and it is so safe. ... for the humans we encounter daily. Children and adults of all ages tend to be unable to resist petting my girl when they meet us.. and I am thrilled knowing that even the youngest hands are safe from chemicals when they pet my speical dog.

the only time i have found a flea is when my health has kept us from returning home in time to get her treatment.

But when on this with out fail.. the fleas, flies and other bugs just stay away.

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

I used this product on my larger dog (just over 50 pounds) and it does seem to have worked at repelling ticks and fleas. He has not had either bite him since using the product. Even I got a tick but last week! The problem I have is that it is very strong and the line I put it on his back started peeling a week after I put it on and has continued to do so. It has a very strong cinnamon odor when yo put it on your pet, but my dog did not seem to mind. He was not acting uncomfortable or trying to get it off of him. I had no idea that it had any side effect until he started to peel, so I am guessing he did not feel burning at the application time. We are going to try it on my brother's lab since he has a more hearty skin and coat. My dog has very sensitive skin to start with and the chemical tick repellents never caused him to peel. It does work, but just be careful if you have a sensitive animal.

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

I have a mostly white haired dog, and had read that some dogs with similar hair had a colored streak when using this product. My dog had NO irritation or dyed spots in her hair. She has only used one squeeze tube so far, but I think if it really does deter bugs, I am going to use it forever. The smell was nice, it is all natural, and way cheaper than the chemical filled alternatives! Woohoo for this natural option.

I am so glad there is a natural flea & tick product available! I have been using Natural Defense since the spring and I couldn't be happier. I don't have to put toxic chemicals on my dog to keep her protected! It works really well. She spends a lot of time outdoors, in the woods and the creeks, and I haven't found a single bug on her. It has a strong potpourri smell for the first few days, but I don't mind it. It sure beats chemical smell.

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

This product should be used in conjunction with the All-in-on Flea Remedy, that is why I've given it four stars. On its own, it will not rid you of all fleas especially in the south where they are vicious.

It smelled really strong for 2-3 days, but faded after that. The smell wasn't awful, just noticeable. The dog didn't seem to care, however.

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

Was so excited to find an all-natural product to use on my dogs. My pug is highly sensitive to everything so I made the incorrect assumption that an all-natural product would be okay -- WRONG! I just spent 30 minutes outside sloughing all the hair off of him - my backyard looked like it had snowed in July. There were white flakes in his fur as well and he was very very itchy. My lab/mix had black "dirt" under her fur and it fell out in clumps as well. The smell stayed in the house for DAYS and was not pleasant at all. Very disappointed that this product did not work :-(

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

The smell is amazing. It's like putting potpourri on your pet. It's a little oily on the coat because...well, it's oil, so I rubbed it into the rest of the coat after initial application to reduce the 'oil slick' look. There was some hair loss at the 'major' application site (shoulders and tail base). However, it was only lost from the undercoat (shihpooh)and only noticeable during a bath. However, I haven't seen a flea on my pup since I started using Sentry.

I have used Natural Defense for the first time, this spring and summer on my 3 dogs. They are 3 different sizes and a wide variety of ages. I was having a tick problem before using this product and it has since disappeared. I also have not seen any fleas on any of them and one of them spends a good part of the day outside. I also love the smell (kind of like cloves and other spices) that lingers on your pet and throughout the house for a few days.

Contrary to other comments, I found the smell of this oil very appealing - my dog smells like a giant orange and clove ball for a day or two at the most. So far only 4 ticks - and they were dead when I found them. This is equally as effective as the Frontline I used to use and it's all natural. I'll not go back!

When reading all the negative comments about this product I paused a moment, but decided to try it anyway. My dog has food allergies, but I feed her a high grade dog food. The smell of this product is not offensive, there was no bad reactions. There was a yellowish stain on her all-white fur, but I washed her after 48 hours and it came out. I use this product in conjuction with the Herbal Defense Shampoo & Conditioner. Have no complaints, and am glad to use something natural on my dog.

Thank you Sergeants for coming up with a product I've been waiting years and years for, we're big environmentalist so not putting poison into landfills is an added bonus, and thank you Only Natural for carrying it.

It works just as well as the harsh, smelly poisons and where my dogs didn't enjoy their treatment before they sit and stay put no problem now. I don't have to smell bug spray for four days and they aren't bothered in the least by the natural smell.

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

I try to care for my animals holistically as much as possible and have major problems putting the other stuff on them. However, we are in the deer tick capital of the country so I do have to use something. Natural Defense is a product that I feel much better about putting on my dogs. The smell is very strong for the first few days, as others have noted, but to me that is a small sacrifice to make to be able to use a safer product. The smell dissipates after a few days and the remaining light smell is pleasant. It works just fine too.

Even after washing her right away it was still hurting her. She lost a huge patch of hair and had blisters that took days to heal. I wanted something natural instead of pumping her full of chemicals. If it works for your dog that's great but be very careful. I felt guilty for days.

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

I have a seven year old male Akita. I recently moved to Virginia, where deer ticks carry lime disease. I ordered two boxes of this product. Initial application did not seem to deter the ticks at all. I then tried doubling the recommended application. I counted three new ticks on my hound in the following two weeks. This product has not worked at all for me and my dog. I am ordering a non-natural flea/tick repellant as I write this. On a side note, the product does smell nice, but will discolor (temporarily) your dog's coat if it is light in color.

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

I recieved Natural Defense today. I put a small amount on my dog just to make sure she wasn't allegeric. Last month we used the harsh & harmful vet flea & tick, so I wanted to make sure there wasn't a lapse in between. She used to hide in her cage all day, today she acted like I had petted her. This could be a love story, I haven't had time to verify the effectiveness of keeping fleas & ticks off her yet, but we both love her new smell!! She is a white Jack Russell I saw no discoloration either. Fingers crossed!

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

It is really too early for me to tell, as I have only applied one application. My older cat Jaycee couldn't care less. My younger cat Tikki did run around and try to lick it off, but there was no hair loss. I took someones suggestion from the reviews on this site, that stated they applied half the tube, and then the other half 2 weeks later. This seems to work fine. My dog harley, had a better reaction to it then with frontline. He was not as thursty, and did not hid under the table after I applied it. However, it has turned his white coat yellow, but if that is the only side affect, I will stick with all natural. I will continue to use it and will comment at a later date with the results.

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

The feedback for the mfg. would be to tone down the scent with a neutralizing oil. I make many of my own herbal medicines, and the product was a bit too strong. Also, if they are using pure essential oils, it really should not be that overpowering.

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

This product surprised me. I wasn't sure it would work. However, it did and the smell wasn't bad either! In Texas we constantly worry about fleas. Having a natural product was great! I don't think it lasts as long as the ones from the vets office, but thankfully it is a natural product!!

 
I would buy this product again!

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

I have 2 mini-schnauzers and a beagle. We back onto a river and there are all kinds of fleas, ticks and other bugs. I use 1/2 the recommended dose per dog, but apply it twice as often - this seems to work best. I have seen 1 flea on one dog, but none of them have any bite marks, so the fleas die quickly. The dogs don't mind the product, and it repels mosquitoes too!

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

I really like that Sentry Natural Defense is all natural. I feel so much better putting this on my pet than one of those chemical products. However after several monthly doses of Sentry all four of my dogs continue to have fleas on their underside---chest, stomach, inside of hind legs and at the base of the tail. The parts of the body closest to where the Sentry was applied are flea-free: shoulders, neck and head. I would like to note that I had been using Frontline for the past several years (and always felt guilty about putting a potentially dangerous product on my pet) with the same results as Sentry: fleas remained on some areas of the body, but not near the point of application.

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

I initially bought this as an alternative to the other leading flea items. I liked that it had natural ingredients. I didn't like that I really couldn't get the product down to the skin level by time you get through the dogs coat. A good deal of it ends up on their coats and then because it sits there on top, it collects dirt and the dogs look dirty. However, this product does at least smell better than the other leading flea products. I didn't find it that effective though. Sorry Sentry!

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

Maybe it is because we live in Florida, or maybe because he is such a big dog (105lbs, or maybe I just am not using it correctly... but poor Jake is still being driven crazy by fleas. I do know that it works some because I assume that there are less fleas on him since there are more on me.

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

I switched to this after wanting to get away from the chemical squeeze-on applications that my vet sells. I have a 105lb German Shepherd, live in Texas where it's flea and tick heaven and it works great! My dog is outdoors several hours each day. The smell is strong at first, but I kind of like the smell and my dog does not seem to mind. Not sure if I would put it on my cats, because the smell might be too intense. I just flea comb them regularly and that works fine.

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

We like the fact that this product does not contain chemicals. And, we like the smell. It is not quite as effective as the previous product we used that did contain chemicals because we did find 1 tick on our German Shepherd while using this product. We have been using this product for about a year.

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

My dog's skin was red and irritated where the product was applied, but worse (so far-keeping a close eye on the skin irritation) was the smell! It gave me a nasty headache and sore troat. I had to wash it off the same day I applied it. I will never buy this again and would tell others not to buy it.

This product gave my cat MASSIVE diarrhea, made him sneeze, and smell bad. I applied it 4 days ago, and he is still having bad bathroom issues and scratching like crazy. Now the other cats don't want any thing to do with him. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE!!!!!!!!!!

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

My maltese, who weights about 7 lbs, had an allergic reaction to this. Be careful at first, maybe try a small amount before putting the whole application on to see how it goes. His reaction was running around the house going crazy scratching; I put him in the tub and bathed him to get it off and he was ok after that.

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

I have been using another popular flea & tick product but it seemed to iritate our Mandy. She would hide for a day after application & I felt like it was poison going into my dogs body. I was so grateful to find something natural that would also take care of the mosquitoes. She didn't mind at all, seems to be working well, and she smells so good and makes the whole house smell good. Keep up the good work. The price is great also, especially for retired people.

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

This is a safe and healthy alternative product to frontline. I have been using this on my dogs for two years now and have not seen one tick or flea on them. It smells great and gives me satisfaction knowing I am not harming my animals. That fact it is so reasonably price is just a bonus.

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

I was a little apprehensive at first, reading the reviews of hair loss. But I do not use chemicals on my dogs so a little hair loss wasn't going to be so bad. After first applications on my 2 Pomeranians, I anticipated the gobs of hair falling out, but nothing, no reactions, no hair loss and a pleasant smell. I do feed my dogs high-grade, human-grade dog food, though, not the cheap store-bought junk I find all over. I do believe because my dogs are healthy, they have no reactions to natural products.

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

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

My dog had his first topical reaction with this. His skin got irritated and eventually scabbed up at all points where it was applied. The rest of his skin got dry, flaky, red, and smelled. I ended up having to get antibiotics and special skin infection shampoo for him. I will never use this again.

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

I'm in my second season of using this product on my standard poodle. Although she was never infested, I've seen no sign of ticks or fleas even after switching from the highly toxic flea/tick meds sold at the vet. I recommend to everyone I know who's interested in a natural and non-toxic alternative to flea/tick prevention.

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

I bought two three packs for my two shelties to have each thier own supply. I put one on them and the smell is so strong ( not pleasant) and the next day along BOTH thier backs were red irritated rashed dry and flaky paths on them ! I couldn't believe it. My vet warned me I didn't listen. I tired washing it off it didn't work, I treated them for their dry flaky skin for awhile and threw out the rest of the package, i won't even give that to a shelter !

I will never ever put that stuff in any form on my dogs again ! I am sorry I did.

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

While the fleas no longer travelled the path along the dogs' backs, they still continued to attack their legs, necks, and tails. There was no evidence of 'killing' fleas at all, just forced them elsewhere on the pooches.

Decent Natural Alternative
By PersonVerified Reviewer from US on 3/28/2007
Pros:
Good Value, Natural
Cons:
Causes Irritation, Stong Scent
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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

The smell is very overwhelming at first, smells like a really strong cinnamon candle. I only needed to use half of the tube since my dog is 5 pounds and I was using the "up to 15 pound" tube. Shortly after applying it did leave the skin irritated and pink at the application site. Because of the irritation I washed my dog right away after the 24 hours. It seemed to work fine. No fleas, keeps the mosquitos away too, and we reapply about every 4 to 5 weeks during flea season.

Great Natural Alternative

Pros:
Effective, Gentle, Good Value, Smells great
Best Uses:
Larger Pets, Older Pets, Smaller Pets

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

Great Natural Alternative. I used it in combination with Brewers yeast and garlic tablets and the itching stopped within a day. My dogs smell great too! They do not run away, like they did when I applied the chemical treatment. Only disadvantage is that i need to apply it every three weeks for effectiveness. It is still a great deal.

Problem with product

hair loss with Pug as well
By ClaireandRoofusVerified Reviewer from Seattle, WA on 9/25/2006
Pros:
Natural approach
Cons:
Very strong smell

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

For only being 15-40 lbs application there was a lot in the tube. It made my whole house smell like citronella, way too strong scented for my dog too. I wanted to wash it off as soon as i put it on- USE CAUTION. My Pug is highly allergic and developed hair loss shortly after the application, not 100% sure if this was the culprit. If anyone has same experience let me know.
