As a pet owner for many years, I have lots of experience in looking after a pet. We had a West Highland Terrier called Mikey, join our family as a bouncy 8 week old puppy and he was in our lives for just short of ten wonderful years. He was a massive part of our family and we have many wonderful tales to tell all about his adventures and the troubles he got into.
As a responsible dog owner, it’s essential to make sure they are looked after correctly. Of course, they need daily food and regular changes of bowls of water, plenty of walks and lots of attention but there’s other things to consider too which may get forgotten in the hustle and bustle of daily life.
When was the last time you treated your dog (or cat) for fleas? Did you know that using Frontline Plus as a proactive measure can help keep both your dog and your home free from hidden fleas and ticks.
According to research conducted by Frontline, 95% of a flea problem can be found in the home as eggs, larvae and pupae. Therefore, the chances of your pet having an isolated case is unfortunately rather slim. The new double action Frontline Plus treatment inhibits the development of flea eggs from hatching and larvae developing in the home protecting both your home and your pet in one easy application.
Luckily, we treated Mikey monthly with Frontline as it was recommended to us by our vet so we didn’t get many experiences of having to de-flea the dog, which for the record is as grim and itchy as it sounds. We would have definitely used Frontline Plus had Mikey still been with us today.
This weekend, 5th and 6th November 2016, Frontline Plus will be exhibiting at the National Pet Show at the NEC in Birmingham with their Frontline Plus House to raise awareness of fleas and ticks and the importance of regular treatment to prevent infestations in your home. The Frontline Plus house features a typical British living room and visitors will be encouraged to find the hidden fleas and ticks to get a further understanding of just how difficult they are to spot!
If you’re visiting the National Pet Show this weekend, the Frontline Plus team would love to see you!
