Like many people, I enjoy warm days! Here in Wisconsin, they are few and far between – so when they arrive, we love spending as much time outside as possible with our dogs! I must say though, being outdoors doesn’t always bring only positives, the most unfortunate part is the BUGS!
In the past, we’ve had many instances where we’ve found ticks on/or already embedded in our dogs! Poor Sophie seems to be a tick-magnet because of her silky fur! In one season alone, we pulled off three ticks that were already latched on to her! Thankfully, we’ve only seen one tick on Ollie and because of his thick, cotton-like fur, it was only crawling on top and we quickly whacked it off and discarded it.
This year, we’ve been more intentional about the prevention and treatment of ticks. We’ve been using Adams Flea and Tick from Walmart which has been easing our mind so far! Throughout their product line, Adams Flea and Tick have put together a great regimen for preventing and treating ticks and fleas on your dogs and in your home!
How to use Adams Flea and Tick Products to Prevent and Treat Infestations
The first step is to determine which Adams Flea and Tick products will fit you and your pet’s lifestyle and then head to your local Walmart and them pick up (these are all available online, too – just click on the links below to be taken directly to the product on Walmart.com)!
Let me break down the products, so you can be clear on which one(s) you should get!
ONE: Adams Flea & Tick Cleansing Shampoo 16oz – This shampoo is my favorite product of the line for immediate treatment! It works like a charm and has been preventing fleas and ticks so far this year! We’ll definitely continue to use it this summer as well!
TWO: Adams Flea & Tick Spray 16 oz – This spray is used for immediate treatment if you feel your pet was exposed to ticks/fleas. If you can’t get a bath in immediately, the spray is really handy to have! It works for up to two weeks after application.
THREE: Adams Flea & Tick Carpet & Home Spray 16 oz – This spray is another must-have! Not only does it help prevent fleas & ticks, but it also eliminates roaches, ants, spiders, crickets, silverfish, and sowbugs. This is one of our new favorite products to have on hand! I love that ONE treatment lasts for nearly 7 months – which definitely covers all of spring and summer! One thing I’d recommend is that your pets stay outside while the spray drys in your home. But hey, they love the outdoors anyways, right?!
FOUR: Adams Flea & Tick Collar Plus for Dogs & Puppies (Gold Tin) – The collar is a preventative treatment which can be used after spray and shampoo (mentioned above). It kills bugs and mosquitoes for up to six months! It provides your furry friend with strong protection from dangerous critters.
Here’s a sample regimen that you can use to prevent & treat your dog of ticks & fleas:
- If extreme protection from fleas & ticks is needed, you can use the Adams Flea & Tick Collar Plus for Dogs & Puppies to feel like you have stronger protection against infestation.
- You can spray your carpet and upholstery with the Adams Flea & Tick Carpet & Home Spray to keep and exterminate the infestation that may be there or may potentially arise. Did you know that the fleas on your dog only make up 5% of the fleas in your home? Yeah, it’s pretty important to get rid of those pesky pests!
- If you spot fleas/ticks on your dog, you can use the Adams Flea & Tick Spray on them immediately to eliminate and protect your dog now and the near future. It’s a great alternative to lesser quality topical treatments, as this one provides immediate relief from the biting of these pests.
- Lastly, you can give your dog a bath with the Adams Flea & Tick Cleansing Shampoo and watch the bugs be eliminated right before your eyes! As stated above, the positive effects should last for 7-14 days after the wash!
So, do you think you have everything you need to keep your dog and home flea & tick free this season and beyond? I know we do! Be sure to check out the whole line of Adams Flea and Tick products at your local Walmart or online. You will definitely find a product to fit your dog’s needs!
