Flea and Tick Treatment for Dogs
PURINA TOTAL CARE Flea & Tick Control for Large Dogs provides month-long flea and tick treatment for dogs, and takes just seconds to apply.
Fleas and ticks may be common in dogs, but they can cause a lot more problems for your pet than you may think. As they feed on the blood of your dog they can cause allergies, carry parasites such as tapeworms, and even transmit serious diseases.
PURINA TOTAL CARE Flea & Tick Control for Large Dogs is a powerful formulation that targets a range of common problems, such as flea infestations, flea allergy dermatitis, paralysis ticks and biting lice. It is a topical treatment known as a spot-on. Topical treatments such as flea and tick spot-on treatment for dogs are applied with a pipette between your dog’s shoulder blades at the back of the neck where they cannot lick it off.
This type of flea and tick treatment lasts one month, and not only kills ticks and fleas, but repels them. It works by attacking the parasite’s nervous system to paralyse and kill them. It releases slowly over time, resulting in ongoing protection for up to a month. It is convenient as it takes just seconds to apply and can be easier to administer than oral treatments such as tablets.
For lasting control and prevention of flea and tick infestations in your dogs, treat them regularly on a year round schedule. Flea and tick populations boom in the summer, so it’s particularly important to treat your dog preventatively before this time. For maximum efficacy, be sure to also remove fleas from your home by cleaning regularly, especially with carpets and pet bedding.
PURINA TOTAL CARE Flea & Tick Control for Large Dogs was carefully created for dogs that are 20-40 kg in body weight. If your dog falls under this weight, PURINA TOTAL CARE also has available products for Medium Dogs and Small Dogs.
While PURINA TOTAL CARE Flea & Tick Control for Large Dogs is an effective flea and tick treatment for dogs, it’s also important to consult a qualified veterinarian on the health needs of your pet, especially if you notice anything out of the ordinary.
