Spring Protection X Adams Pet Care
Spring is here, which means we will be doing a lot of fun things with Ari including long walks in the park, weekend trips, hikes and outdoor picnics. Since winter had been pretty wet and warm this year in New York, there is likely to be a boom in the number of flea and ticks this spring. This means extra protection for the doggies against these aggressive pests. It only takes one bite for your dog to develop Lyme disease or other serious tick borne illnesses.
Our regular walks are usually in Central Park, which for most part is free of fleas and ticks. But, we make frequent road trips to upstate New York in spring/summer, where fleas and ticks can be found in abundance. In fact we have a road trip to Niagara Falls State Park coming up soon. I decided to incorporate Adams Pet Care products, available at Walmart, in Ari’s grooming regimen this season to ensure complete protection against fleas and ticks.
Our grooming regimen with Adams Pet Care includes two topical products - Adams™ Flea & Tick Cleansing Shampoo & Adams™ Flea & Tick Spray. I bathed Ari using the shampoo and waited for him to dry out completely before using the spray. Although bathing is recommended, you can use the flea and tick spray without bathing your pet first. However, ensure that you don’t bathe him for at least 24 hours after using the spray for it to work. Make sure you avoid eye areas and if at all the product comes in contact with the eyes, then rinse immediately. If your pet has come in contact with fleas and ticks, then these topical products are great for providing immediate relief. Not only do they provide quick relief from biting fleas, but also kill their eggs, breaking the flea cycle for up to two months. Please note that these products CANNOT be used on puppies under the age of 12 weeks.
Another great product that I would recommend for your dog is Adams™ Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs and Puppies. These collars are fully adjustable and water resistant. Each collar provides protection for up to six months by killing fleas and ticks and repelling mosquitoes. It also prevents new flea infestations by killing adult fleas before they lay eggs. These are perfect for daily walks if you are traveling to or live in an area that has a heavy infestation of fleas and ticks.
Lastly, I tried Adams™ Flea and Tick Home and Carpet Spray, which is designed to work on all fabrics. Its not only great to kill fleas and ticks but also other pests like bed bugs, spiders, ants, and cockroaches. Its easy to use and a good preventive product to ensure a complete flea and tick free environment for your pup.
Overall, I found Adams flea and tick products to be much more effective and convenient to use as compared to other brands. I will definitely continue using them throughout the season to ensure 100% protection for Ari against these aggressive pests.
