The day we brought Lila home from the rescue shelter, we felt our little family was complete. We knew we had to learn how to care for a dog, since til then our three cats had been our only fur babies. After figuring out how many walks she needs and at what time, type of food she ate and how often, and what her favorite toys were, we thought we knew it all. It felt like we had a new baby in the home, figuring out all her little quirks and sounds. She quickly became part of the family, and we took her everywhere! We went to parks, went on hikes, even to a dog beach and a few restaurants here in L.A (this is the best dog city!). We thought we had being dog parents down! Then, a few months later, we had a new lesson to learn: fleas.
Naturally, with 3 other pets in the home, I panicked. My cats have always been indoors, so I never faced fleas until then. I immediately called Lila’s vet to see what I needed to do. She put me at ease immediately, and I followed her instructions, which was essentially but a Flea and Tick product like Pet Armor Plus for Dogs which happen to be available at one of the stores I frequent all the time, Walmart.
I made sure to get the right PetArmor Plus, I double checked to make sure I grabbed the one for dogs, as they also have PetArmor Plus for Cats. The packaging makes easy by showing a dog or a cat, as well as listing the weight right on the front. Lila is about 13 lbs, so the Pet Armor we got for her is actually OK for puppies over 8 weeks old (and 4lbs) too. PetArmor Plus for Dogs is easy to apply, just be sure to read the entire label before you apply it to your dog or puppy.
One of the best things about PetArmor is that you don’t have to wait for your pet to get fleas to start using it. PetArmor Plus can be used for protection, prevention and/or treatment of fleas and ticks. We started a monthly application schedule to make sure Lila is flea free and comfortable all year long. If used as directed, PetArmor Plus can stop infestations and help prevent reinfestation.
Lila appreciates being comfortable…so much, she likes to just lay on my chest and fall asleep. That’s the kind of comfort PetArmor gives my fur baby, and me, and it’s exactly the kind of comfort all pets and their families deserve.
