We all know that protecting our dogs and cats from fleas and ticks is an essential part of their care routine. If you do ever have the misfortune of finding these unwelcome guests on your pet, you have the added hassle of taking measures to deep clean the house to make sure their pesky eggs and larvae don’t turn into adult fleas.
Thanks to the clever people at FRONTLINE®, you can now help protect your home from getting infested in the first place!
FRONTLINE have recently launched a new ‘double action’ product: FRONTLINE Plus. This not only kills fleas and ticks on your pet, but also contains an additional active ingredient that stops flea eggs from hatching and larvae developing in your home. Apply every 4 weeks to help protect your pets from fleas and ticks.*
Why does this matter you may ask? 95% of a flea problem that can be found in the home are related to eggs, larvae and pupae. To really show us where these pesky parasites hide in our homes, FRONTLINE have created the FRONTLINE Plus House which is touring the UK to raise awareness of the risks fleas, and also ticks, pose to our pets and homes.
They are also having fully qualified veterinary professionals on hand to offer expert advice on flea and tick protection so you can ask for advice or have any questions answered after your close shave with these (fake!) pesky critters.
The FRONTLINE ® House was unveiled at Victoria Station with Steph & Dom Parker from Gogglebox and their miniature Dachshund Gigi. I was so disappointed to not be able to make the event as I would have loved to meet them and see the FRONTLINE® House. Luckily the house is going on tour so you can get to see it in its full glory at the following events
- Family Pet Show, Manchester – 1st-2nd October
- Discover Dogs, London – 22nd-23rd October
- National Pet Show, Birmingham – 5th-6th November
Also if you share any photos from your visit via social media you can receive instant rewards through a ‘lucky dip’ competition. Also don’t forget to sign up to the FRONTLINE monthly treatment reminder service to be in with a chance to WIN a £1500 Forest Holiday for your family and pet.
