I hate bugs, which include fleas, ticks, gnats, and anything else that has creepy legs or flies around. Sorry, I can’t pretend that I care for them. I don’t want to go out and use pesticide and kill them; I just don’t want them hanging on me and certainly do not want them hanging on Dexter.
I fully believe in natural pet care products and try to review various products to find out what works and what doesn’t. The folks at Pet Wellbeing asked me to try their natural flea and tick solution, 0Bug!Zone for dogs. True to form, I took a look at their natural flea and tick product online first.
0Bug!Zone for dogs is a very interesting natural bug repellent. It is not like your typical natural bug spray; it works on a completely different level. It uses electromagnetic frequencies to create a chemical-free insect barrier from pests. The concept is very intriguing. However, because Dexter has a neurological condition, I did want to talk to one of his holistic veterinarians, Dr. Mary, to ensure it would not affect Dexter in any negative capacity. She gave the product a green light, so I proceeded to give 0Bug!Zone a try.
When the 0Bug!Zone arrived, I carefully read the instructions. The instructions say to attach the tags (one flea and one tick) to a dog’s collar with the magnetic strip facing the dog’s body. The website provides a variety of ways to attach the tags to a dog’s collar to ensure both magnetic strips are facing the dog, including using a ring or zip ties. I’m unclear on why there are two different tags for ticks and for fleas; I can only assume that each tag has a different electromagnetic frequency. The instructions go on to say that the 0Bug!Zone must be worn at all times and that the barrier of protection starts about 24-36 hours after attached. Well, this poses some problems for Dexter. Because of Dexter’s neurological condition, he cannot wear a collar. He wears a harness for walking, but I cannot leave that on at all times because it does aggravate his condition. Therefore, I had to improvise, and attached the tags to the harness he only wears during walks. The instructions also say that it is applicable for people too, but I’m not sure someone would wear both tags 24/7.
For the last couple of weeks, Dexter has worn the 0Bug!Zone tags when he goes outside. I have to say I have not seen any bugs, fleas, ticks or other pests on or around Dexter. However, it is a rarity to ever find any on him. Here in Ohio, we are just outside our prime pest time of the year, so I think it’s a little hard to tell if it’s the product or that there aren’t any around. I haven’t seen any flying pests on our walks to the park, woods or otherwise.
0Bug!Zone by Pet Wellbeing is a natural and safe product, so it certainly won’t do any harm. I am hoping that they will allow Dexter to try it again next spring/summer when the bugs are out full-force. I have high hopes for this product, but I just want to ensure I put it through thorough bug testing before coming to my final conclusion. 🙂
