Sentry Natural Defense Flea & Tick Squeeze-on For Dogs & Puppies
(5 out of 5)
Sentry Natural Defense Flea & Tick Squeeze-On is a highly effective, no-fuss product.
April 27, 2011 10:14 pm | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.
Sentry Natural Defense Squeeze-On Flea & Tick Squeeze-On For Dogs & Puppies is a shove-in-your-pocket alternative to the fantastic Sentry Natural Defense in a bottle.
If you don't have time to suds up your four-legged friend before embarking on a hike, have no fear, just grab one of these nifty green, squeeze-on bottles on your way out the door and lather up your mutt when you get to your destination. And -- as a word to the wise -- Sentry Natural Defense Squeeze-On has a rather strong odor so I highly recommend waiting until you're out of your automobile before applying it.
How well does it work? Great. If you're familiar with Sentry's other products, you won't be surprised with the ease and efficiency of this one. Simply pull the tab that opens the small tube while holding your pet with one hand, then gently apply the solution to the area between your dog's shoulder blades making sure that it works its way down below the hair and finds the scalp.
Sometimes dogs react to the cold sensation, so be careful that you've worked the solution in. And this is why you apply it to the shoulder blade, so that your pet can't ingest it. Be careful to keep it away from the eyes and mouth -- this goes for humans as well as dogs. And you'll want to be sure not to bathe your dog within 24 hours after contact with Sentry Squeeze-on.
Bottom line: Sentry Natural Defense Squeeze-On Flea & Tick Squeeze-On For Dogs & Puppies is a highly effective product that requires even less preparation than its non-squeeze-on cousin.
Pros: Requires less preparation than non-squeeze-on products; very effective at controlling pests.
Cons: Odor can be strong if used in enclosed spaces.

If you want to be sure that your pets are protected from fleas & ticks, this is the way to go. We've used these on our cats for years now & never had a problem. Now, if I could find a generic brand...........
Pros: Squeeze it on & then forget about it.
Cons: Aint' cheap

Due to the essential oils this product does have an overpowering smell at first but it fades to a bearable level. I personally don't mind the smell, in fact I like it, but it is still a bit much at first. I try to keep the chemicals in my life and environment to a minimum and when I can find something that works with less chemicals I am more then willing to purchase it. It doesn't last as long as the chemical version (it can be reapplied after two weeks) but at the price and the lack of chemicals I would be more then willingly to apply it more often if I needed to. I have very little problems with fleas in my area and I actually when a couple months without having to reapply.
Pros: no chemicals, easy to apply, works well, cost
Cons: smell, length of effectiveness

Many of my birds have survived thanks to this antibiotic. Why I can't find it in a store is beyond me. This is a miracle tonic that at only 2.99 can save all types of birds. It's almost impossible to … more ›
