OMAHA, Neb., July 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Fighting fleas and ticks during the summer is no fun. Unless it can lead to winning the all-new 2012 Volkswagen® Beetle®, that is. From July 1 to September 30, 2011, Sergeant's Pet Care Products, Inc. is sponsoring the Big Pest Knockdown Sweepstakes as a way to promote FIPROGUARD™, its newest flea and tick product. While pet owners are giving the one-two punch to fleas and ticks with FIPROGUARD, the generic equivalent of Frontline Top Spot®*, they can also join in The Big Pest Knockdown Sweepstakes.**
FIPROGUARD is an EPA-approved generic equivalent of the popular topical squeeze-on treatment for fleas and ticks, Frontline Top Spot®. It contains the same active ingredient, Fipronil, at the same percentage. FIPROGUARD is available at pet specialty and farm supply stores across the US at a significantly lower cost than Frontline Top Spot®.*
"The redesigned 2012 Volkswagen Beetle is an exciting new version of a proven classic," stated Caryn Stichler, vice president of marketing at Sergeant's. "That description also fits FIPROGUARD™ - the generic equivalent of Frontline Top Spot®, a product recommended by veterinarians for many years. Because it uses the same active ingredient, it provides the same level of protection and efficacy as the Frontline® product. The difference for consumers is the surprisingly lower price. It is also available at pet specialty stores and farm supply stores that they may already visit for pet food or other supplies. Convenience and cost savings make FIPROGUARD™ a great choice. With the sweepstakes, FIPROGUARD™ not only gives pet owners the ability to treat their pet for fleas and ticks just as effectively and safely as when they used to use Frontline Top Spot®*, but they also have the chance to win the newly designed Volkswagen Beetle!"**
To enter the FIPROGUARD™ Big Pest Knockdown Sweepstakes, visit fiproguardplus.com and register.** One winner will be chosen at random on or before October 5, 2011. The lucky winner will receive their new 2012 Volkswagen Beetle when they arrive in Volkswagen dealerships in fall 2011.
