It’s spring and it’s that time of the year when I start to worry about flea and tick control. Chuckles the Cat and I noticed that Walmart® has my favorite flea and tick protection – FRONTLINE® Plus for Dogs and FRONTLINE® Plus for Cats. It was road trip time for me and Malibu, my German Shepherd mobility service dog. She enjoys going to Walmart with me on my shopping trips. Off to Walmart we go!
Malibu, pictured here shopping with me at Walmart for FRONTLINE® Plus for Dogs, is my personal mobility service dog. She just retired from being a breeding dog but will continue to assist me with my physical handicap for a long time. Years of service dog training has been invested in Malibu and without her I would be forced to use a walker or cane. Malibu helps give me my freedom to do the things I want. And we, as a service dog team, have to present a responsible image when we are in public. I can’t have her sitting in the middle of the aisle at Walmart scratching at fleas. I need a product that I can trust and depend on to help me keep my girl protected from fleas and ticks! FRONTLINE® Plus Flea and Tick Treatment fills the bill for me! It is reassuring to know that FRONTLINE® Plus is the #1 name in flea/tick control and that it’s been trusted by vets for nearly 20 years. And I like that it works for a full 30 days killing the adult fleas and ticks on the pet and also killing the next generation of fleas.

FRONTLINE® Plus is waterproof . Thank goodness for that as we have a couple of dogs who love water. Playing in the little brook that runs through our backyard is something the dogs love to do on a hot summer day. And our girl Gemma is always up for a spray with the hose when we are washing the car or watering the garden.
I love FRONTLINE® Plus! Using FRONTLINE® Plus helps me keep a handle on the flea and tick situation. I like being proactive when it comes to those little creepy crawlers. Once you have a flea infestation, it is a nightmare to get rid of them. Trust me, I’ve been there, not only as a pet owner but as a professional dog breeder. We are breeders of German Shepherds destined to be trained as mobility service dogs. Keeping our breeding females protected from fleas and ticks is very important to us. The fact that it’s approved to use it on our pregnant females and litter mothers is huge for us. Our dogs are incredibly valuable to us both monetarily and emotionally, so a trusted brand like FRONTLINE® Plus gives me peace of mind.
Right now we have two adorable and very busy puppies, Albus and Dora that we kept from Malibu’s last litter. They are destined to be breeding dogs when they grow up but right now they are just very busy playful puppies. Because the pups are low to the ground and are venturing everywhere when we take them outside, we have to be sure that we are protecting them from getting any serious infestations. Thankfully FRONTLINE® Plus for Dogs can be used on puppies as young as 8 weeks old and weighing at least 5 pounds, so we can use it on them to help with this summer’s “Battle of the Bugs”.
