This post is sponsored by Perrigo Animal Health and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping to spread the word about the launch of a new topical flea and tick treatment but my fur babies and I only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Perrigo Animal Health is not responsible for the content of this article.
When we first found our sweet adorable Mittens, she was COVERED in fleas. It was horrible. She was only 8 weeks old at the time. We bought a flea comb and started combing off flea eggs daily thinking that would be plenty. It wasn’t. The eggs started hatching and before long we had a full on outbreak of fleas in our home that attacked both the cat and the dog.
Soon after, we discovered PetArmor Plus and have been using it ever since. Once we finally got all the fleas killed and the eggs destroyed, keeping the fleas at bay was pretty easy. Taking preventative caution is important if you want to keep your pets free and clear of fleas, ticks, and other biting insects.
If Spring has finally sprung where you live, then you know it is time to start thinking about flea and tick protection for your dog. Parasite protection for dogs and cats should be a top priority of responsible pet owners. Bites from fleas and ticks can cause an allergic reaction and/or anemia as well as transmit diseases like Lyme Disease, Erlichiosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever to your dog or cat.
The best protection for your pet is prevention.
Where Do I Start?
We always start by giving our fur babies a bath. We cleanse them really good (it’s just always been a thing for us) before putting their medicine on. Have you ever seen a cat that likes to take a bath?
Once we give them a bath, they both get dried off really good and then we apply their PetArmor Plus flea and tick medicine.
PetArmor Plus is a simple one dose squeeze-on preventive that should be used monthly to prevent flea and tick infestation. It is available in four different packages for different sized dogs: 4-22 lbs., 23-44 lbs., 45-88 lbs. and 89-132 lbs.
We all know there is never just one flea or tick. Those pesky critters multiply fast and can even lay dormant for months in carpets, bedding and cracks/crevices in your home. That’s why your best protection from an infestation is prevention.
The new PetArmor® Plus by Perrigo® Animal Health is an easy way to prevent fleas and ticks from biting your cat or dog. It contains Fipronil, the number 1 veterinarian-recommended active ingredient, and (s)-methoprene to protect your dog from fleas, flea eggs, flea larvae, ticks and chewing lice.
PetArmor Plus is fast-acting, long-lasting and waterproof, helping to stop the reinfestation cycle by killing flea eggs and larvae.
We used to use FRONTLINE® Plus and while it did a great job, it was expensive! Then we discovered PetArmor Plus and discovered it to be 40% less than vet prices compared to the other flea and tick brands.
or those responsible pet owners who are on a tight budget, or have a multi-pet household, PetArmor Plus is a cost-friendly solution to flea and tick prevention.
PetArmor Plus has separate products for dogs and cats so make sure you buy the correct product for your pet’s species. It can be used on puppies over 4 lbs. and kittens over 1.5 lbs that are 8 weeks of age or older.
