As many of you know, I live in a zoo. Well, not literally....But we are pet lovers, and have several cats and even a couple of itty-bitty little ankle biter dogs. We love our fur-babies, and they are a very important part of our family. We do our best to always make sure they are happy and healthy. If we can do so without breaking the bank? Even better.
So when I learned about the wide variety of pet products from Hartz, I was excited to check them out. I had already heard amazing things about their cat toys and Delectables Lickable Treats, and I also have friends and family that swear by Hartz products for flea and tick treatment.
While we're currently in the middle of "Busy Season" for fleas and ticks, they are a year-round problem that should be at the forefront of any pet owner's mind.
The primary flea and tick season in the United States is April – September; however fleas survive throughout the year. Hartz is committed to educating consumers that a consistently protected pet mounts a stronger defense against flea infestation; an infestation that cannot only pose a threat to the animals, but also to the home. Hartz has a complete line of flea and tick products, including collars, shampoos, home and garden sprays, and its best prevention product; Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® Flea & Tick Drops for cats and dogs.
“Only 5% of the problem is addressed when consumers treat the adult fleas they can actually see,” states Lance Hemsarth, Senior Director, Research & Development at Hartz. “That means the remaining 95% of larvae and eggs left untreated can cause re-infestation. It is our duty as a trusted pet care brand to educate families regarding the health benefits of consistent flea prevention treatment for their pets.” Like personal health exams and smoke alarm battery checks, establishing preventative behavior aids in overall health. Implementing interactive and engaging tactics to augment this behavior is the goal of this campaign.
Renowned veterinarian, Dr. Bernadine Cruz, will contribute to the ‘No F&T’ messaging through her practice based in Laguna Woods, California, as well as through her internet based radio show ‘The Pet Doctor’ heard on www.PetLifeRadio.com. States Dr. Cruz, “I have a special interest in flea and tick care for dogs and cats. When applied consistently, pet owners can safeguard their animals and their homes year-round; eliminating costly veterinary office visits for infestation and help protect the health of their pets and family. I am thrilled to be a part of this educational campaign.”
We received a nice package full of various pet products. Included were those Delectable Lickable Treats in both Stew and Bisque varieties, Delectables Gourmet Chicken Flavored Treats. All of my cats absolutely LOVE these treats. The Lickable Treats, especially. My only complaint? I wish the pouches came in a larger size. When you have multiple kitties, it takes several pouches to avoid a literal cat fight.
We even received an assortment of fun kitty toys. Yes, catnip was included! My cats have been having a ball playing with these fun, colorful toys! They especially enjoy the jingle-balls and the catnip fish.
We also received Hartz UltraGuard Pro for both dogs and cats. These boxes contain 3 monthly applications, and prevent pests like fleas, ticks, and mosquitos. They are easy to apply, and work for 30 days.
Here are some quick facts (DOG):
Long lasting monthly treatment with dual Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs) that protects your pet and his environment+ and starts killing fleas within 15 minutes. Kills fleas, Brown Dog and Deer Ticks, flea eggs, flea larvae, repels mosquitoes before they bite and prevents re-infestations for 1 month. Features the patented and easy to use Pro-Glide® angled applicator with rounded edges for a softer, more pleasant application experience that is suitable for both long and short-haired dogs. Quick drying formula stays on and doesn’t rub off
Cat Quick Facts :
The Pro-cision Flo™ applicator (patent pending) easily penetrates the fur for improved application directly to your cat's skin. Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® Flea & Tick Drops for Cats is a monthly treatment that kills fleas, deer ticks and mosquitoes plus kills flea eggs and larvae to prevent future infestations for up to 30 days, stopping the flea life cycle. Do not use on kittens less than 12 weeks old. Package contains 3 monthly treatments.
Do they work, though?
Well, my pets don't have any flea issues, so I cannot say whether or not fleas die rapidly with this treatment. I am assuming they would work, and I have noticed that even after playing in the yard, my dog, Trouble, has not had any ticks or fleas on her. So far, so good, as far as repelling goes!
I CAN say that all of my fur-babies have been treated, and that none of them have had any sort of adverse reaction to these products. I know that's a major concern for pet owners when they choose topical pest-control products, and for good reason. No one wants their pets to get ill due to an adverse reaction. These drops were super easy to apply, and absorb quickly into the skin. Of course you shouldn't bathe your pet for at least 24 hours after applying, and cats shouldn't groom each other in multiple cat households after application.
Should you have any questions about these products, please consult your trusted veterinarian.
So far, we are definitely loving the Hartz line of pet products. We will definitely add these to our must-have pet essentials list!
