YARDLEY, Pa., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PetArmor® now provides a powerful 1-2-3 punch in the fight to keep pets pest-free with FastAct™ Flea & Tick Shampoo and Spray, providing both immediate relief and long-term prevention of flea and tick infestations.
Step 1: At first sign of fleas or ticks, use FastAct™ Flea & Tick Shampoo. The shampoo contains pyrethrin, which is derived from flowers and kills fleas and ticks on contact while conditioning the pet's coat and washing away the "flea dirt" that flea larvae need to survive.
Pet parents should apply the shampoo all over, including the neck, chest, middle, hindquarters and legs, and paying special attention to the areas frequented by fleas including footpads, between toes, underbody areas and the base of the tail. FastAct™ Flea & Tick Shampoo is approved to use on dogs and cats over 12 weeks old.
Step 2: Next, use FastAct™ Flea & Tick Spray to target existing flea and tick infestations and protect specific areas of the home where pets may go. The spray kills and repels adult fleas, ticks and lice on contact, and kills flea eggs and larvae, inhibiting flea re-infestation for up to 100 days.
The spray can be used directly on the pet and its environment, such as pet bedding, carpets, draperies, pet carriers and upholstery. FastAct™ Flea & Tick Spray is approved to use on dogs over six months old and cats over seven months old.
FastAct™ Flea & Tick Shampoo and Spray retail for $11.99 and $14.99. Both are available at Walmart, Target and other major retailers nationwide.
Step 3: Finally, to ensure fleas and ticks don't return, apply PetArmor® for Dogs, PetArmor® for Cats or PetArmorPro™ Advanced for Dogs monthly. Both products contain the same No. 1 vet-recommended active ingredient, fipronil, found in Frontline® Plus and Top Spot® to kill fleas and ticks. PetArmorPro™ Advanced for Dogs also contains a second active ingredient to repel fleas, ticks and mosquitoes from biting in the first place.
PetArmor® for dogs and cats retails for $25 for a 3-month supply and is available at Walmart, Target and other major retailers nationwide. PetArmorPro™ Advanced is available for dogs of all sizes at Walmart and retails for $29 for a 3-month supply.
