Protect your furry friends!

Believe it or not, mosquitos love our pets just as much as they love us.  Just like in humans, a mosquito bite for animals can result in an everything from an irritating itch to a parasitic disease.  According to Hartz, the biggest concern caused by mosquitos for dogs is heartworm disease.

DEET is the main ingredient in most mosquito repellents, but it is definitely not the way to protect our furry friends.  We hate putting that concoction on ourselves or our children.  (With good reason, too.  DEET can actually melt plastic!)  So why would we use it on our pets?

If our furry friends are even exposed to DEET, it can cause skin irritation, vomiting, and even seizures.  [Source: BarkPost]  Think about this: cats and dogs and many other animals clean themselves by licking their own fur.  Imagine if they ingest this toxic chemical!  (Another reason not to use it on yourself either – no dog kisses!)

 

Luckily, Osana is made with all natural ingredients and is pet-friendly.  Use Osana on your furry family members (and the rest of them) for all camping, hiking, and any other fun outdoor adventures.  #MosquitosSuck, but your pet’s summer doesn’t have to.
