Frequently asked questions about shoo!TAG.
With a bond this strong, it is important to protect your pets from fleas, ticks and mosquitos — three big enemies and thecause of serious diseases in pets.
We know that there are dozens of solutions on the market today, unfortunately the majority of them use chemicals—better known as poisons—to control these pests. And up until now, pet owners have had to make the daunting decision among “lesser evils” when choosing an appropriate flea and tick treatment program for their pets.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a report earlier this year that detailed many injuries, hazards and deaths among pets that were given the typical poison-based solutions on the market today. (You can read it here.)
This is a safe, non-toxic, chemical and poison free solution to controlling fleas, ticks and mosquitos that uses no sprays, lotions or liquids of any kind. And with our shoo!cycle program, we are the greenest solution out there.
Show your pets how much you love them by protecting them with shoo!TAG® today.
So How Does it Work Anyway?
Some products sound complicated, but are actually very simple (we like to say brilliant) in how they work. This is the case with the shoo!TAG® product.
When we set out to create shoo!TAG® we knew we wanted a product that was completely “Green.” One of our pet peeves is the damaging effects that the typical insect sprays or lotions can have on the environment. Plus we wanted to design a product that was completely safe for use with all other devices such as a pacemaker or animal microchip. As a result, we created shoo!TAG®–a safe, “Green” and chemical-free product that protects people and animals against insects without the use of lotions or sprays.
We even use recycled materials in our packaging, and our commitment to the environment does not stop there. When it is time to replace your shoo!TAG®, we offer a shoo!cycle program that invites our customers to join the effort to save our planet (You can read more about that here.) Talk about full circle recycling!
The technology behind shoo!TAG® is that it creates a “frequency barrier” designed to protect people, pets and animals from insects. According to our research, each insect is repelled by a specific frequency— which explains why some packages contain more than one tag. We encode the frequency into a magnetic strip on the shoo!TAG®. (Yes, it’s the same type of strip used on your credit or debit card, and no we cannot add shoo!TAG® to your Visa card.) The product works because the natural energy field created by an animal or person expands the specific frequency, which creates a barrier from insects.
When used as instructed, the shoo!barrier lasts for up to 4 months. If you are a tad skeptical about the quality of our product, you have a right to be! After all, there are so many products on TV these days that sound too good to be true, and often are. What you need to know about shoo!TAG® is that first, it is not a perfect solution. Rather, it is a recipe that provides equal parts environmental protection, consumer health and safety, and awesome shoo!ing power. (yes we made that word up.)
Second, we have conducted dozens of field tests to prove the effectiveness of the shoo!TAG® product, much to the dismay of some of our employees. After all, nobody likes to be the one who has to go into a small tent with 1000 mosquitoes without shoo!TAG®! Check out the video from our the August 2010 test!
And third, if none of this gives you confidence, then how about our 30-Day Money Back Gurantee from the manufacturer (contact them directly)!
The research does not stop there. Would you like to know the rest of the story? In other words, would like you to know the truth about the insect repellents you have been using on your family and pets for all of these years? If so, please read some of the flea and tick product articles on this site (search for flea, tick or poison).
NB: My feeling about this product, is that it is worth a try. There is nothing to lose. If it helps your pet at all, great! If not (in < 30 days), then return it and get your money back.
The company says that your pets’ level of health (including exposure to vaccines, drugs and other chemicals), will directly impact the effectiveness of shoo!TAG. This makes total sense in my experience. The same is true for attractiveness to fleas and ticks in general. Many products do not typically work well for infestations and heavy exposures. Personally, I’m not convinced that the strong chemicals used for flea and tick control are worth the potential (long-term and environmental) risk.–Dr. Jeff
