A month has passed since the dogs were last treated for fleas and ticks. I know it’s been a month as Callum’s F1 magazine dropped through the letter box this morning – the same as it did last month on the day I treated Pepper and Ziggy.
I grabbed the boxes of Frontline Spot On Flea Drops and with a little help from Matthew both dogs have again been treated. It’s a good job that treating them only takes a couple of minutes with it being half term this week we’ve had a really busy week and have hardly had a moment free – so a task that required time just wouldn’t be an option at all for us.
Frontline can be purchased for cats and dogs of all sizes (make sure you get the right pack for your pet).
Frontline is a veterinary strength solution for the treatment and prevention of flea and tick infestations and the control of biting lice. The drops act on contact and not via your dog’s blood allowing for easy application using the pipettes included.
Frontline kills 98-100% of fleas within 24 hours for approximately 2 months and kills ticks within 48 hours for up to 1 month, minimising the risk of disease transmission after treatment and fully controls infestations of lice within 48 hours. Frontline is safe to use on puppies from 8 weeks of age and weighing over 2kg you can also use it on pregnant and lactating bitches.
This product is for animal use only and should under no circumstances be administered to any animal other than that which is stated for. It should be kept out of reach of children and hands must be washed after use.You should make sure that you refer to the dosage and usage instructions provided with the product before administering it. However, if you are unsure on the usage of any of the Frontline products you should consult your Veterinarian who will be more than happy to advise you on its administration.
The drops are easy to administer and only take a minute to put on your dog. I know how easy it can be to forget to do something but you really should make time to protect your pet – if your child had headlice you would make sure they were clear wouldn’t you? and if you are a responsible parent (which most of us are) you would keep on top of the problem and regularly check to make sure that there isn’t anymore lurking.
Although both Pepper and Ziggy were only treated a month a go it’s important to keep on top of their treatment as we don’t want either of them being the start of a flea infestation in the house – especially now the weather is starting to get that little bit nicer and we are taking them for longer walks in the woods and down by the river.
Here’s to another fuss free month that we don’t need to worry about those pesky fleas and ticks.
