Summer symbolizes many different things for different people. For pet owners it may symbolize the start of flea and tick season. That’s enough to start dreading summer, well for me at least. I dread the impending parasitic bites and treatments that come with ridding a pet of fleas. That’s why this year we decided to start early.
We used PetArmor Plus Flea Treatment® on Giblet a few days ago. It’s comparable to Frontline Plus and lasts for 30 days. That’s right – 1 application lasts 30 days!
Did you know: The fleas and ticks on your pet are only a small percentage of the number in the animal’s environment. Fleas and their eggs can live outside in grass, soil and crevices in sidewalks and live inside in rugs and carpets, floor cracks and bedding.
What is PetArmor Plus?
PetArmor Plus has the same active ingredients as FRONTLINE® Plus — but costs up to 40 percent less than vet prices! It contains fipronil, the No. 1 veterinarian-recommended active ingredient, and (s)- methoprene to protect against fleas, flea eggs, flea larvae, ticks and chewing lice.
PetArmor Plus helps protect the entire family from illness by killing ticks that may transmit Lyme disease. Fast acting and long lasting, it stops the reinfestation cycle by killing flea eggs and larvae.
He was pretty curious when we were getting ready to put the Pet Armor Plus on him. Maybe he was just excited to know he wouldn’t be getting those pesky varmints on him this year.
He was very still while we put the treatment on his back, per the directions. That is always a good sign because usually he’s skittish about anything being put on him. I’ve already seen fleas on several of my friends pets this year and I’m excited knowing Giblet is protected!
You should know: PetArmor Plus is meant for puppies over 4 lbs. or kittens over 1.5 lbs. and 8 weeks of age or older
If your pet has ever had fleas or ticks then you know how much of a pain they are to get rid of. Starting early means you’re ahead of the pests. That means you won’t have to watch them suffer as fleas and ticks are turning them into an all you can eat buffet.
