Our dogs and cats are family and we want to provide them with the best possible care. Unfortunately, no matter the environment, pets can be exposed to fleas and ticks. Fleas and ticks can cause serious health issues for pets and their families, including the spread of Lyme disease. That's why more than 80% of veterinarians recommend monthly protection against fleas and ticks.1 Whether you're looking to protect your pet and home, or dealing with a flea and tick problem, PetArmor can help.

Follow this easy program to prevent fleas and ticks from ever biting you, your family or your pets again.

Treat your pet: Treat once a month with an easy and effective topical product like PetArmor Plus to kill fleas and ticks on your pet. It kills before fleas and ticks have a chance to bite and helps to detach any ticks that are on your dog or cat.

Treat the home: To kill the adult and pre-adult fleas hiding in pet bedding and carpets, treat pet bedding areas with PetArmor Home products. For a severe infestation, you may need to up the ante and use a PetArmor Home Fogger.

Treat the yard: Protect against fleas, ticks and other insects in your yard by using a yard or premise spray. Using these treatments can further protect against mosquitoes, which can transmit deadly heartworm disease to your dog or cat.

Protect Your Pet

As this program suggests, most of the fleas in your home aren't on your dog or cat – they live in carpets, your pet's bedding and are waiting in the yard for a ride inside. This means that if you're only treating your pet, your family may not be fully protected.

Who wants fleas and ticks in the first place? Prevention is the best medicine. PetArmor Plus takes flea and tick protection to another level. Whether your pets live and play in a heavily infested flea and tick area or spend their time lounging on the couch, prevention is the key. PetArmor Plus is just as effective as the leading vet brand2 and its waterproof formula breaks the flea life cycle by killing flea eggs and flea larvae for up to 12 weeks. Plus, it kills ticks that may transmit Lyme disease.
