Dundee, IL, May 19, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Earth Heart™ Inc., a manufacturer of a broad line of natural remedy mists for dogs, announced today the release of Buzz Guard™, a new product designed to help dogs combat fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, flies and no-see-ums, safely and naturally.
Mosquitoes, flies, fleas, no-see-ums and ticks can cause a variety of illnesses and problems for your dogs. Buzz Guard all-natural mist is the latest in the line of award-winning Earth Heart mists for dogs, created with safe and healthy essential oils and neem to repel mosquitoes, flies, fleas, no-see-ums and ticks and help protect your dog 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.
Thorne created several formulations and spent four years of field testing them before releasing 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 about 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.”
Testing continued throughout 2010 with very similar results. Dr. Meg Jorgensen, of Illinois shared her experience with 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.”
Buzz Guard is made in the USA, packaged in a BPA free container, and can be used with puppies as young as eight weeks old. Simply spray it onto the hands and apply to 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.
Buzz Guard has been nominated for a Retailers’ Top Pick Award by Pet Product News International.
