ORLANDO, Fla., March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Perrigo Animal Health, a division of Perrigo Company plc (NYSE: PRGO; TASE), showcased eight new product SKUs at the 2016 Global Pet Expo: SENTRY® Vantaguard™ 2 and SENTRY® Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs.
SENTRY Vantaguard 2 Flea Treatment
SENTRY Vantaguard 2 contains the same active ingredients as Advantage® II, imidacloprid and pyriproxyfen, but costs less.* This monthly flea topical kills all stages of the flea life cycle and works through contact so fleas don't need to bite to die, which helps prevent flea allergy dermatitis. SENTRY Vantaguard 2 is ideal for urban dogs or cats that aren't exposed to ticks.
- Compare to Advantage II – costs less*
- Kills fleas, flea eggs and flea larvae
- Starts working through contact
- 4 application doses per carton
SENTRY Vantaguard 2 will be available in four weight breaks for dogs and puppies over 7 weeks of age and in two weight breaks for cats and kittens over 8 weeks of age in mid-2016.
SENTRY Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs
SENTRY Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs contains the same active ingredients as Scalibor® Protector Band for Dogs — but costs less than vet prices.* The long-last collar contains deltamethrin to protect against fleas and ticks, including those that may carry Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. With two collars each providing six months of protection, dogs will be protected year round from fleas and ticks.
- Compare to Scalibor Protector Band for Dogs – costs less**
- Kills fleas and ticks
- 12-month protection with two collars
- Easy to use
SENTRY Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs is available in small and large sizes for dogs and puppies 12 weeks of age and older.
