For those who want the longest term option available from Dr Mercola Healthy Pets, Dr Karen Becker recommends the Herbal Repellent Collar which is a special blend of oils that allows the collar to work for up to 4 months – without using any potentially harmful chemicals.
The Herbal Repellent Collar is water resistant, so pets can swim with it on, and you don’t have to worry about reapplying it afterwards. What makes this product so unique is that the active ingredients are a part of the collar itself and not something that’s applied to just the outside of the collar, allowing the repellent to be diffused over a long period of time.
The many benefits of this herbal repellent collar include:
- Effective for up to 4 months and the collar is water resistant, so dogs can swim in it
- Repels fleas, ticks and mosquitoes
- No harsh ingredients
The Flea & Tick Defense can be used by itself or in combination with other Mercola Healthy Pets pest repellent products for maximum protection.
Dr Mercola Herbal Pets Repellent Collar includes the following ingredients
Geraniol – The essential oil derived from geraniums (a flower), geraniol is an effective plant-based mosquito repellent.
Wintergreen Oil – This oil is usually obtained by steam distillation of the leaves of the wintergreen plants, and is used for many things including to help relieve discomfort and pain, as well as to help repel insects.
Almond Oil – Used as a “carrier oil” that the essential oils are mixed with, almond oil is good for the skin and makes a great emollient. All these ingredients are healthy for your pet – as well as extremely effective repellents – so you can rest easy that your dog or cat will be protected.
Remove the collar from the bag and fasten it around your dog's neck. A correct fitting will enable two fingers to be comfortably inserted between the collar and their neck. LOOSEN THE COLLAR AS YOUR DOG GROWS BIGGER. Cut off and dispose of any excess length of collar which goes beyond the buckle. Wash hands immediately with soap and warm water after fitting.
Dr Mercola's Herbal Repellent Collar is waterproof and does not need to be removed until it is time to replace the collar.
