The official start of summer is next week. The official flea and tick season started a month ago here in KY. I don't like fleas. I don't know any animal who does. So how do we stay flea and tick free?
During the winter we wear our Seresto collars. Our collars keep us safe from fleas and ticks for almost 8 months. In the summer we have used the K9 Advantix II. We love the fact that it protects against mosquitoes and those biting flies. Its also waterproof. K9 Advantix II combines imidacloprid and permethrin to repel and kill fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
Best part is IT WORKS for us! We enjoy our summer outdoor time without the worry of picking up a flea or tick from the grass or having pesky flies bother us. Ma says she has confidence in the Bayer company.
A few months ago Molly Mew, our kitty, needed a flea treatment. The vet didn't have any in stock for her size so ma went to PetSmart. They didn't have the Advantage in her weight in stock neither. Ma seen a product that was made by Bayer that was not only similar to the Advantage II but it was a less expensive. She decided to give it a try. Molly Mew likes to go outside and spends a lot of time hiding in the grass. She thinks she is a mountain lion who likes to watch birds from the tall grass. No fleas or ticks bothered Molly Mew.
When it was time for our treatment, ma said that she didn't have the extra money to buy 3 Seresto collars for us. Since the Bayer Defense Care topical worked so well on Molly Mew she thought she would try it on us.
I have to say, I am quite happy with this product and ma is happy with the price. Bayer Defense Care for dogs uses the following 3 ingredients:
If your dog has any reactions to these ingredients please do not use. We are not sensitive to any of the ingredients and have had no problems. In our area a 3 pack box for large dogs normally runs $39.99 but ma buys it when it is on sale for $27.99. Prices may vary in your area.
We trust the Bayer brand and have been really happy with the results of the Defense Care Flea and tick protection.
