Turns out, cats aren’t protected from fleas just because they reign over an indoor domain. There are lots of ways that those little creepy-crawlies can make their way into your house and onto your kitty. Expert hitchhikers, fleas can sneak in with the help of other pets, people, and even you! Once inside, they can cause havoc and are notoriously hard to evict.

Have you guys tried PetAmor Plus?! I'm loving it! AND I can get it right at Walmart!Since they’re so tiny – sometimes as small as a pinhead – you may not notice them right away, especially if you’re not looking for them. Your kitty’s excessive scratching, biting, and licking might be the first sign that anything’s wrong. Not only are fleas extremely uncomfortable for your furry friend, a single flea bite can lead to an allergic reaction which may result in the need for costly treatment.

Used as directed, PetArmor® Plus can stop infestations and help prevent reinfestation. The vet-quality formula works for up to 30 days to kill fleas, ticks, and chewing lice. Plus, it disrupts the life cycle of fleas by killing larvae and eggs for up to 12 weeks.

ApplyingPetArmor® Plus is easy on both you and your kitty. Before you start, be sure you have purchased the product for cats. The dog and cat products are different formulations based on the species and weight of your pet and SHOULD NEVER be used interchangeably. Read the entire label carefully before using any product on your pet. If you need more information, call 1-888-908-8425.

Then just follow these simple steps to apply the product:

  • Remove product tubes from the package.
  • Separate one tube from the others.
  • Hold the tube with notched end pointing up and away from the face and
    body. Use scissors to cut off the narrow end at the notches along the line.
  • While holding your cat with one hand, use the other hand to apply the
    solution. Invert the tube and use the narrow end to part your cat’s hair.
  • Apply contents of one tube as a spot between the shoulder blades.
  • Hold the cat for a few seconds to give the solution time to be absorbed into the cat’s coat.

It's super easy to apply PetArmor Plus and protect your kitty from fleas and ticks! Now Turtle is ready to go for another few weeks!
