Saving Money on Flea Prevention

Pin It

Recently DogTipper interviewed Dr. Karen “Doc” Halligan, the Director of Veterinary Services at the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Los Angeles (spcaLA). You might recognize Dr. Halligan from Animal Planet where she’s often a guest on several series; the veterinarian is also the author of Doc Halligan’s What Every Pet Owner Should Know: Prescriptions for Happy, Healthy Cats and Dogs.

As you know, we’re always on the lookout for ways to save money on pet care while, at the same time, providing a healthy and happy life for your dog. We talked with Dr. Halligan about a new, less expensive flea preventative called PetArmor, a generic version of Frontline. PetArmorâ„¢ offers the same active ingredient (fipronil), in the same concentration as Frontline. The fipronil patent (U.S. Patent # 5,232,940) expired, clearing the way for generic products to be available.

In addition, PetArmor Plus contains S-methoprene, just like Frontline Plus, which prevents flea eggs from hatching and maturing, and then laying more eggs.

In our interview with Dr. Halligan, she talks about the safety of PetArmor for puppies and senior dogs and also using the new preventative if you have already had your dog on another preventative product.
