Ticked Off? PetArmor Can Help! #TICKFREEFALL

I was compensated by PetArmor for my participation in this campaign as part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network.

pet armorMy husband turns into a scared little girl at the sight of three things: any bug with more than eight legs (he’ll bravely battle a spider or lesser-legged critters), fat-free mayonnaise, and blood-engorged ticks. Last year, when I discovered a tick the size of a pea on our Boxer, my husband ran screaming into the other room. (Okay, not really, but he was pretty much useless when it came to helping me get rid of it.)

How’d it get there? I’m not really sure. Our Boxer doesn’t spend a lot of time outdoors, but every now and then he’ll pick up a tick. Just like the common cold, ticks just sort of happen. But also like the cold, there are things you can do to prevent them from happening. One of those things is PetArmor (for ticks, not colds).

We’ve started using PetArmor on our cats and dogs and guess what? No more ticks. PetArmor is effective for both cats and dogs, and it’s applied by squeezing a small amount of the product onto your pet just once a month. It KILLS the four major types of ticks including those that carry Lyme disease. It also contains the same vet-recommended active ingredient Fipronil that’s found in Frontline brand products, and provides the same protection against adult fleas and ticks but at a much lower cost.

pet armorYou’re probably thinking, “Oh, but summer is over, which means I don’t have to worry about ticks, fleas and mosquitos, right?” Truth is, these pests can stick around well into the fall season. Some ticks, like the American Dog Tick and the Deer Tick, are actually MORE active during the fall transition season. And while it’s true that fleas don’t like cold weather, they can live for a long time in a nice, warm home.

The adult stage deer tick actually begins its feeding activity about the time of first frost (or early October throughout its range), and it will latch onto any larger host – yes, including humans! – any day that the temperature is near or above freezing.

Bottom line: Get something like PetArmor and you’ll not only be protecting your pet, you’ll also be protecting your squeamish husband.
