Insect Shield for pets puts insect repellency near your dog’s skin, instead of directly on it, and the protection is invisible. Also, the repellency is long lasting, so no re- application is needed. Insect Shield does not have to enter into your dog’s system for it to be effective. Nor, do the insects have to bite in order for the protection to work. You simply have to put Insect Shield dog apparel on your pet or have them use the products and it helps ward off a variety of pesky and dangerous insects. Insect Shield protection is bonded to the textile so it cannot be rubbed off. Tested and Proven Insect Shield technology results from years of intensive research and field study. Numerous studies have confirmed the effectiveness of permethrin-treated clothing as an insect repellent. Insect Shield’s own testing methods follow United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines, and the results conclusively show that our unique, long-lasting insect protection works.
