Outdoor pests can cause a variety of dangerous illnesses and problems for dogs, making protection a vital part of a dog’s care. Buzz Guard is an all-natural mist created with safe and healthy essentials oils and neem seed oil to repel fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, flies and no-see-ums, while helping protect dogs for up to five hours. Buzz Guard is a proven, natural and effective alternative to chemical spot on treatments.
Vicki Rae Thorne, master herbalist, certified aromatherapist, and founder of Earth Heart, Inc., saw the need for an effective, all natural, safer and healthier way to combat outdoor pests for dogs as she grew more aware of the diseases these pests can carry, and the potential side effects friends and acquaintances were experiencing with over-the-counter flea and tick medications. “I knew there had to be a solution for dogs that was not only effective in repelling pests, but also safe and healthy for dogs,” said Thorne. “That’s when I went to work to create several formulations and field testing them over a four-year period before settling on the final product formulation, now known as Buzz Guard.”
“We field tested our final formulation and found that test subjects provided us with valuable information that showcased the effectiveness of Buzz Guard,” added Thorne. One test subject lives on property that borders a nature preserve and her dogs are there all the time, presenting an ideal setting for testing Buzz Guard. “The results were very good,” shared Thorne. “She and her dogs really liked the formula and found it did quite well with repelling mosquitoes and fleas, and she did not find a trace of them near her dogs. Although she did find some large ticks on her dogs multiple times during the testing period, she also found that they did not attach to their skin, as they had when unprotected by Buzz Guard.”
Additional tests throughout 2010 indicated very similar testimonials. Dr. Meg Jorgensen, of Illinois shared her experience testing Buzz Guard. “My dog Lucky and I love Buzz Guard,” said Jorgensen. “It smells good and has been effective against, fleas, mosquitoes, ticks and most insects. It is the only thing that works for no-see-ums when vacationing in Florida.”
Made in the USA and packaged in a BPA free container, Buzz Guard can be used with puppies as young as eight weeks old by spraying onto hands and massaging the dog’s outer ears, back of head, abdomen and legs. It can also be used in less infested areas by spraying on a bandana placed around a dog’s neck before venturing outdoors. Buzz Guard has a light fresh scent and leaves no oily residue on clothing or fur.
