A recent study of pet ownership found that nearly 40% of U.S. households own at least one dog. As residents in these 45 million homes understand, dogs are loving, loyal and affectionate animals who provide constant companionship and protection. Dogs are happy when their owners are happy, cheer owners up when they are sad, shower owners with unconditional love and affection and even get sad when owners are absent. For these and many other reasons, dogs are appropriately called man’s best friend.


Most owners pamper their pets, going the extra mile to ensure their dogs are safe, healthy, warm, have plenty to eat and feel like a cherished member of the family. They only want the best for their dogs—the best food, treats, sleeping pads, medications, supplements, shampoo and more—though most have never considered purchasing mosquito repellent for dogs.

Mosquitoes may seem incapable of harming furry animals but a dog can still be bitten, particularly in areas with less fur like their nose and ears. Bites can cause dogs to experience itching and general annoyance and, in some cases, infections from pathogens transmitted by mosquitoes. Infected mosquitoes carry the nematode that causes a disease known as dog heartworm, which can lead to potentially fatal heart and lung infections. These small pests are a threat to a dog’s health—just as they can be to humans. For this reason and others, it is important for owners to show pets they care about their health and well-being by purchasing natural mosquito repellents.

If dogs or other animals are bitten by mosquitoes or encounter a minor injury—scrape, cut, puncture, cracked paw, dry nose or skin irritation—while exercising or playing, specially formulated animal first aid is available. Animal first aid instantly begins to sooth, relieve symptoms and heal any infection. Whether used to help a dog, cat, goat or chicken first aid is safe for all home and farm animals and proven to work quickly and effectively.
