Flea Control Products Review
Ctenocephalides felis, the cat flea
Fleas and ghosts are like two peas in a pod. Both are rarely seen, both hide in the crevices around the house, and both are hard to get rid of. Unlike ghosts, there are ways to prevent your dog and your house from being haunted by fleas for generation after generation.
What Exactly Are Fleas?
As we all know, fleas are a pesky problem for pups. Fleas are tiny creatures with six legs and no wings and are capable of making your dog ill. So far, scientists have identified nearly 2,000 species of fleas! The flea that seems to give dogs the most problem is the Ctenocephalides felis, also known as the cat flea (Ironic, I know). Fleas are also very quick to multiply. Adult fleas start producing eggs within 24-48 hours of landing on your pet and are capable of producing 40-50 eggs per day.
Front Line Flea Control is proven to 98-100% effective within 12 hours!
If your dog is already under flea attack, there are a number of different products that can help. One of the best is Frontline Flea Control. The powerful combination of imidacloprid and permethrin that is found in Frontline Flea Control makes it the perfect product for killing fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. In a study conducted by doctors from the Institute for Comparative Tropical Medicine and Parasitology, doctors reported “the spot-on formulation containing imidacloprid and permethrin was 100% effective from the beginning against naturally acquired infestations of [fleas].” Frontline Flea Control is so effective that manufacturers have guaranteed that it will be 98-100% effective within 12 hours of usage. Frontline Flea Control is offered in 3, 6, and 12 month supplies. It is recommended that Frontline Flea Control be administered each month, and this medicine can be given to a puppy that is as young as 7 weeks old.
Like ghosts, fleas can haunt a family for years if never taken care of.
Of course, Frontline Flea Control is not the only option to help your dog get rid of his fleas. For a dog owner that is only looking for a onetime cure-all, the Eight in One Flea and Tick Shampoo is a great option. This shampoo comes in a 16 ounce bottle and is specifically designed to kill fleas and ticks. The Eight in One has moisturizing properties and will leave a long lasting scent, which is great because nobody likes the smell of a wet, dirty dog.
As you can see, there are a number of options when it comes to attacking the fleas that attack your dogs, so don’t let your dogs be haunted by fleas for years and years. Unlike getting rid of ghosts, there is something you can do! If you have any further questions about fleas and flea control products, feel free to e-mail or call us at petstreetmall anytime.
