Fiproguard Plus has the same active ingredient as Frontline Plus… but costs you LESS!

Out with the other flea and tick control products and in with the new FiproGuard and FiproGuard Plus for Dogs. FiproGuard products contain Fipronil and s-methoprene, the same active ingredients used in Frontline Plus for dogs. FiproGuard Plus provides premium protection against fleas, ticks, and chewing lice; kills adult fleas, flea eggs, flea larvae; and prevents development of flea pupae to control flea re-infestation for up to 90 days. It also kills deer ticks, which transmit Lyme disease, as well as brown dog ticks, American dog ticks and lone star ticks. FiproGuard will also control mites that are known to cause sarcoptic mange. Fast-acting and long-lasting, FiproGuard’s sustained-release formula protects dogs for up to 30 days. FiproGuard Plus for Dogs can be used on breeding, pregnant and lactating dogs. FiproGuard Plus is also waterproof. With prices starting at $20, it’s sure to become a must-buy for your pets.

 

Here’s three easy steps to help you battle fleas this summer.

1) Treat your pet with a spot-on, collar, or spray. Frontline, Advantage, Adams, Bio-Spot, Sentry, and DeFlea all offer effective treatment options. However, when using a spot-on treatment remember NOT to use a regular detergent shampoo. Instead, use shampoos that won’t wash off a spot-on treatment, such as those offered by Bio-Groom and Tropiclean.

2) Treat your house using a carpet spray, powder, or fogger with an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR). Remember that fleas bite your pet and then lay eggs in carpet and bedding. Using a proper treatment schedule, you can kill the fleas in the egg and larval stages first, and then attack them 7-10 days later to ensure that none make it past the cocoon stage.

3) Treat your yard to prevent your pet from re-acquiring fleas! Most spot-on treatments take 7 -12 hours to kill the flea, so if your yard is untreated, you may see “new” fleas on your pet even after treating them. Lawn insecticide granules, such as Hi-Yield Turf Ranger or Bifen L/P, are good to put on your lawn or around your house and should be applied monthly during flea season.  BL
