Buzz Guard natural pest repellant for dogs: Product review
August 18, 2011 • Product Reviews
Earth Heart’s Buzz Guard: A smaller but oh-so-effective option to help keep fleas and ticks off dogs.
The scent is strong at first but it did fade with time. DEET-free, this formula uses neem seed oil; pure essential oils of citronella, fir, geranium; rosewood, basil, myrrh; and potassium sorbate. Two ounces is about $12 but a few squirts go a long way.
I’ve been using this for over a month in combination and so far, no fleas and no ticks – and we do a lot of outdoor walking, ball playing and trekking through grassy areas. I also feel paw-ticularly great not putting chemicals on my dog that I cannot even pronounce.
Does it take longer to apply than a once-a-month topical? Yes. Is it safer and yet even more effective on my dog thus far? A resounding yes.
No chemicals, DEET free, no gloves to apply, and fleas and ticks are staying away. This has been a great pest-free summer.
