Pet Meds for Keeping Fleas at Bay

Any pet-dog, cat, hamster, bunny-can suffer when fleas take up residence in their coats. That’s why it’s important to be proactive in keeping fleas at bay. But it takes more than a weekly bath with baby shampoo, and old-fashioned flea dips have gone the way of the Dodo Bird. Fortunately, these days pets can be protected from biting pests with any of a number of products.

Frontline Plus for Dogs and Puppies is one of the most effective medications to keep your dog-young or old-safe from fleas and other pests. This topical medication kills adult fleas as well as their eggs and larvae within twenty-four hours of application. Ticks, too, will fall before the powerful ingredients in Frontline Plus. The effects last for thirty days, even if your dog likes to swim or take regular baths. It’s easy to apply, too.
