YARDLEY, Pa., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With winter weather finally behind us and spring in full swing, today PetArmor® introduced PetArmorPro™ Advanced, a new topical flea and tick treatment. PetArmorPro™ Advanced contains the same No.1 vet-recommended active ingredient, fipronil, found in Frontline® Plus, but combines it with an additional active ingredient. Together, the combination is clinically proven to kill adult fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes faster than Frontline® Plus. It even repels to keep these pests from biting in the first place, which Frontline® Plus does not do. PetArmorPro™ Advanced is a great option for dogs that live and play in heavily flea and tick infested areas. The product's fast-acting flea and tick protection repels the insects from biting, reducing the risk of disease transmission and skin damage.
"By making flea and tick products affordable and accessible, we are able to help families better protect their dogs and promote overall better pet health through the prevention of the diseases these insects can carry, or infections resulting from bites," said Alex Kaufman, President and CEO of FidoPharm, the makers of PetArmor®. "PetArmorPro™ Advanced is the ideal solution for pet parents who want to provide their dog with vet-quality flea and tick protection at a much more affordable price. PetArmor's® 'Protection Guarantee' promises to protect your dog as well as Frontline® Plus or PetArmor® will refund the purchase price."
Available for dogs of all sizes, PetArmorPro™ Advanced is designed for monthly use with easy-to-use, disposable applicators. PetArmorPro™ Advanced treatments are formulated for dogs in five sizes: Toy, Small, Medium, Large and X-Large. The products are currently available at Walmart, and retail at $29 for a 3-month supply.
