Rambo’s Protected!

Have I showed you guys my new little dog?  Meet Rambo!  He’s a long haired Chihuahua who loves, actually, he prefers to be outside ALL the time which means I have to worry about ticks!

I know many of you folks take your dogs to the vet to get their flea & tick medicine but there are many that don’t, including myself.  It’s so expensive. I mean, you have to pay for the vet visit and the medicine, which can run you over $100 quickly.

When Walmart asked me if I wanted my pets to give their new flea & tick medicine line (PetArmor Plus) a try, I definitely said yes.   I googled Frontline Plus, the competitor, and learned about the ingredients so I’d know how it compared to the new PetArmor Plus that you can find at Walmart for much less.   I believe it’s less than $30 for 3 applications which completely affordable.  I also chatted with a vet about the product and learned some really cool things but I wanted to share the charts with you so you can see that PetArmor Plus has the same ingredients.

We had applications for both our dogs and our cats.  We applied the treatments to all of them, on the same day.

It’s that easy!  We were done in less than a minute.  The product takes 18-24 hours to work but we noticed it working MUCH faster.  We could see the ticks that were currently on Rambo start to fall off.  It’s been working great and we are 3 days from applying the second application.  It’s important to do it on time so that it keeps working effectively.   Once the product is applied and dry, it doesn’t come off.   I’ve got some happy dogs now!

I’m really happy they came out with this product that fits into my budget and is completely comparable to the other brand.  I’ll admit, I’ve never used flea & tick medicines like these because of cost so I’m glad I can now.

    I really don’t know what’s cuter…your adorable little guy, or the fact that your adorable little guy is carrying around such a bigger-than-life name like “Rambo.” Too cute. Love him!

    I’m gonna have to give this stuff a try because our cats brought in a TICK the other day (eww, eww) and you’re right, vet costs for pet meds are just ridiculously priced.

    Yeap, already did the first flea drops on my dogs back at the beginning of April. Got to keep them safe, plus don’t want them bringing any flees or ticks in the house.
    Your dogs are cute, especially Rambo.
