When you worry about your pets being bothered by pesky insects, being able to easily slip on a repellent cover-up gives great peace of mind. Insect Shield for Pets is a range of apparrel proven to effectively repel mosquitoes, ticks, ants, fleas, flies and midges. This stylish and convenient range offers effective insect protection coming into the Summer months when your pets are most vulnerable.
The range includes a trendy Neck Bandana, a Breathable Mesh Tank (Jacket), a Neck Gaiter, fleece blanket, bed, safety vest, car seat and car boot covers and even a playpen, all made from the Insect Shield fabric. This lightweight, breathable fabric is perfect for pets to wear during warmer weather or activity, while still getting the invisible, odourless protection.
Heidi and Tessa road-tested the tee-shirts for play-time in the garden followed by a walk through the forest, where they are most likely to be troubled by midges and even bring home some new, unwanted friends – the dreaded ticks. Heidi, above, wears the medium, which is nicely loose-fitting and long on her back which kept her well covered but still comfortable and cool for the duration of her walk. Her harness fitted well over the tee and both dogs didn’t seem to notice they were wearing anything different. In fact, I’m almost certain I witnessed some posing…
Whilst the tees are infused with Insect Shield technology, they do not smell or feel unusual. They can be washed and worn again, the insect repellent technology does not wear off when washed.
- Cool design
- 2 colours to choose from
- Good range of sizes
- Soft, meaning little legs don’t get chafed
- They work! Not a bite in sight!
Not only are the tees keeping the dogs safe and protected, they look gorgeous too. They come in ‘Fern’ green in addition to the ‘Carrot’ orange. Tessa wore the small/medium size which was loose and comfortable for her. Both Heidi and Tessa receive their topical treatments to prevent against infestations on a regular basis but this extra layer of protection is reassuring.
