Don't waste your money. It did nothing to help control fleas. I read the reviews & thought it sounded great, I want disappointed in this product.
I can't believe this doesn't seem to work for some people. I have been using this on all three of my dogs. One is a LGD and lives outside and never has a flea or tick. One for my lab and then one for my Chihuahua. I live in a tick infested area and he used to get at least 3 to 4 ticks every time he went outside. Since I have been using these tags none of my dogs have had a single flea or tick and I have been using them for over 3 years now. I wouldn't use anything else! I replace them every 3 months. I have bought and given them to friends and family members and even sent one to my sister in France whose dog was always covered in fleas and that dog has no more fleas. She had tried everything. I really find it hard to believe that it wouldn't work for anyone. I am a true believer!! Thank you so much for this wonderful product.
"Not good for spring/summer"
As an update to my first comment, Jeffers did not hesitate to replace the product at no cost to us and they got the 4 spectra shields to us within just a few days. However, the new shields have been in place for three days now and our dogs are still covered in fleas. This product obviously only works during the winter months when fleas are the least bothersome. it bothers me that Jeffers does not include this information. They have to already know this. We will use this product only during the winter from now on as it is a good cost savings over other flea/tick products. My very low rating is because this product is completely ineffective during the months dogs need protection most.
We bought these for our 4 dogs. They were great for the full four months. This time though, we are only 7 weeks in and our dogs are covered with fleas and quite a few ticks. This is awful. We have asked for replacements or a refund. We may keep using them. It all depends on the response we get from Jeffers.
"Worked but not long enough."
The tag worked very well but after 54 days it was not able to keep the fleas off my dog during the spring flea population explosion. Dog was outside a lot and tag effectiveness was good even after it got wet. Would I buy again? Only if on sale for half price.
we bought one not expecting much...but our mini schnauzer has no fleas...and the test was...that his brother did not wear one and he would have 6 to 8 fleas at night....so it works...ordering one now for our second dog..
I really like this product for my lab that stays outside. She had a huge problem with gnats at the beginning of the summer. After clipping the tag onto her collar, I noticed she had no more gnats. She also had a bad area on her leg that has gotten better because the bugs are staying off of it. I don't see her scratching and haven't had ticks or fleas for the last 3 months.
